      The increasing popularity and quality of fake IDs has caused many industries to run into issues. Consider a 2019 study that showed that almost 1 in 3 high school students had consumed alcohol in the previous week. Industries that serve smokers, drinkers, gamblers, and other age-restricted services have seen a major increase in the number of fake IDs being used. These IDs are most often used to trick a business when manual ID checks are the only security measure in place.

      Age verification scanners can improve the efficiency and accuracy of ID checks. For instance, it can reduce the risk of serving an underage customer due to manual ID check errors. This not only keeps your customers safe but saves your business from the potential consequences of serving underage customers, including FDA fines, warning letters, and even a loss of license. 

      Read on to learn about how you can save time and money by supplementing your personnel with an efficient age verification scanner.

      Handheld ID scanners are a great way to check if an ID is real and to extract information from the ID. Handheld ID scanners are typically paired with verification software to prevent fraudsters from slipping passed through. They can improve ID checking efficiency, reduce the risk of underaged individuals, keep a record of past fraudulent IDs, and protect your business from potential losses in income.

      In the automotive industry, single instances of fraud can amount to tens of thousands of dollars in losses even if the car is recovered. That said, the best way to minimize fraud losses is to prevent fraud from occurring in the first place.

      To do this, businesses and dealerships must take preventative measures to combat both in-person and online fraud. Here is a checklist to help you catch fraud before it’s too late and save money:

      MELVILLE, NEW YORK – December 3, 2020 – With the holiday shopping season in high gear and COVID-19 cases continuing to skyrocket

    • Dec, 02 2020

      With the demand for automotive sales moving from in-person to online, the need for fraud prevention methods is also increasing. In fact, according to a recent study by GIACT, 85% of car shoppers are more likely to buy from particular dealerships that will allow them to start or complete nearly all of their vehicle purchases online.

      Due to this massive shift to online purchasing, a wide range of opportunities have opened up for fraudsters to steal from automotive dealers.  Fraud in the automotive industry can be as easy as a few credit card scams.

    • Dec, 02 2020

      Fraud in the automotive industry can cost dealerships hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately for these dealerships, automotive lenders are now trying to make the dealerships shoulder the responsibility for fraud related losses, which leaves dealerships to absorb the detrimental costs. 

      In many automotive fraud cases, fraudsters will submit fraudulent documents that help them receive a higher credit limit at a lower interest rate. They may also plan to steal a vehicle without any intent to make payments at all. In these instances, fraudsters may pose as a strong applicant with a solid credit history with their sole goal being to drive the vehicle off the lot. Once the vehicle has left the dealership then the likelihood of recovering the losses is far lower. 

      Some of the most commonly forged documents dealerships need to watch out for include fake IDs, true name fraud, misrepresented income, and stacked loans. Getting to know these forms of fraud can help prevent them and save the dealership money.

      Many fraudsters have an easier time bypassing online fraud prevention measures than in-person. The demand for purchasing things online has increased more and more each year, especially for automotive retail. 

      In fact, according to the Cox Automotive Future of Digital Retail study, 85% of shoppers are more likely to buy from a particular dealership that allows for them to start or complete nearly all of the vehicle purchase online. 

      As dealerships adjust to the demand in the market, they need to be aware of the two major forms of fraud: true name fraud and synthetic identity fraud.

      These forms of fraud are becoming increasingly more common, making it no longer effective to simply check a credit score to verify identities. So while trying to keep up with demands it is important to stay educated on the risks.

    • Nov, 16 2020

      Mobile identity verification is not new technology, but the lockdown has made a viable verification system more critical than ever. With so many customers conducting their banking from mobile devices, the risk of application fraud has never been higher. 

      Fraudsters can use personal information to open a bank account under someone else’s name or use synthetic identities to pose as first-time customers.

      An up-to-date mobile identity verification process ensures that the customer being served is who they say they are and that your bank can catch synthetic identities before they become fraud.

    • Nov, 16 2020

      It is high time for businesses such as banks and large retailers to invest in and integrate fraud technology into their existing infrastructure. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses to shift to remote operations and working environments. However, this comes at a hefty cost considering every dollar of fraud now costs a U.S. business $3.36. 

      Since the shift to a remote environment, fraud has increased by 7% due to the lack of barriers and preventive measures in online environments. To keep it simple – fraud can be detrimental to your business resulting in thousands of dollars (if not more) in lost revenue. Therefore, your business must deploy solutions to catch fraud before it can cost your business.

    • Nov, 13 2020

      Fraud risk is the likelihood of an organization or business being subject to fraudulent activity. Banks and retailers use several methods to prevent fraudulent activities. To mitigate any fraud risks and be AML compliant, you need a fraud prevention team to stop cybercriminals from accessing your system and data. This fraud prevention team is responsible for vetting all processes to ensure no internal leaks or external threats can hurt your organization. 

      That said – there are modern and unique fraud risk management solutions that every financial institution and retailer should have in place.

      Chargebacks occur when a buyer requests a reversal of a credit card payment that is issued from the bank. This was created as a way to protect consumers from merchant scams but has since evolved into a way for individuals to commit what is commonly known as “friendly fraud.”

      Friendly fraud occurs when a consumer abuses the chargeback process put in place to protect them. This is often caused by an individual claiming legitimate purchases are fraudulent and stealing the product they were given. Once a chargeback has been issued, your chargeback merchant rights become relatively limited. That said, it is important to ensure you are protected by employing chargeback insurance. 

      There are several components to consider when it comes to choosing the right chargeback insurance for you. Here’s what you need to know:

      Commercial businesses are always vulnerable to break-ins and thefts. However, some sectors, such as retailers, are more susceptible to less obvious forms of theft, such as credit card chargeback fraud. 

      Chargeback, also known as “friendly fraud,” occurs when a cardholder disputes a financial transaction and gets the payment reversed by their bank instead of contacting the merchant for a refund. These reversals usually involve customers abusing the chargeback facility to commit fraud. 

      Obviously, not all chargeback claims are fraudulent; however, the percentage of chargeback frauds is growing exponentially every year.

      It’s no surprise that society is shifting from in-person activities to online transactions. Especially given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic changing the way we interact.

      From retail shopping to school classes, every niche involving in-person activity has felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As businesses have adapted, the remote environment looks like it will be here to stay for a long time, even beyond the pandemic. While this shift has been convenient for businesses that are easily able to shift to a “work from home” format, it has also ushered in its own sets of challenges for banks and financial institutions looking to prevent fraud activity, such as “person not present” fraud. 

    • Oct, 27 2020

      There has been a massive shift in the global online presence, and financial institutions are no different. For example, let’s take banks; 57 percent of consumers prefer online banking over visiting a brick-and-mortar branch. 

      Some financial institutions believe that a simple credit check and a photo of a license is sufficient enough to warrant the issuance of a credit card or to open an account. It is far from the truth – as technology evolves, so do fraudsters and their tactics to bypass your security protocol. 

      Therefore, you should consider deploying innovative solutions, such as mobile face recognition, to strengthen your credit checks and virtual ID scans.

      Retailers are consistently vulnerable to fraud and theft which can be crippling for establishments of all sizes. Chargeback fraud contributes greatly to the losses businesses incur over the course of their lifetime and are rapidly becoming more problematic. In fact, according to a study by LexisNexis, overall retail frauds have tripled since 2017. 

      The rise in online shopping trends has also ushered in new sets of malicious threats for retailers. That said, the key to staying ahead of chargeback lies in an extensive understanding of why they occur and how you can prevent them. Here’s what you need to know:

      As somebody who works for a financial institution, AML compliance needs to be one of your top priorities. One of the main AML compliance regulations states that every financial service company must perform identity verification. This is why it’s especially important to make sure that your customers really are who they say they are, also known as customer due diligence (CDD).

      That said, it’s crucial that you closely follow a CDD checklist to avoid fines, criminal negligence, or even a company shut down. Making sure your business is fully compliant with AML regulations is key to protecting both your company and your customers. 

      This checklist will help to ensure your customer due diligence is completely taken care of:

      While the evolution of technology has been beneficial to financial institutions and their customers alike, it has also made it easier for the fraudsters to get around unsophisticated security measures.

      A fraud committed online is usually known as virtual fraud. The only way to reduce the virtual fraud risks is by understanding what it is and what preventive measures you can take.

      Chargeback fees can cause serious financial damage and also threaten your business’s reputation. Chargebacks do not only refer to returned merchandise or lost sales; the true cost of chargebacks lie in fees that are tied to them.

      Typical chargeback fees range from $20 to $100. Add in the customer acquisition and operation costs (stocking, storing, packing, and shipping) and your business ends up losing almost three times the transaction amount.

      Therefore, it is crucial for you, as a merchant, to take preventive measures to reduce the instances of chargebacks fees. Here’s how you can stay ahead:

      The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), requires all financial institutions to collaborate with the US government to combat monetary crimes as well as the prevention of money laundering. Under BSA requirements, financial organizations must work relentlessly to detect and identify potential suspicious financial activities. Since its initial inception, BSA regulations have undergone several amendments, including the Patriot Act, which helps expand BSA’s scope to include monitoring and preventing terrorist financing activities. 

      Failing to be compliant with all changes to BSA regulations can result in hefty fines or even jail time. That’s why it is so critical to stay on top of changes in the industry, but many financial professionals don’t know how to do this, as they are busy with their day jobs and duties. 

      To make sure you are getting the most accurate information in a timely manner, here are a few simple and painless ways to keep up with BSA requirements and changes when they happen:
