Why Top Credit Card Issuers Trust Intellicheck

In 2020, credit card fraud was the second most common type of identity theft with nearly 400,00 cases reported. Stolen credit card data, including a victim's CVV number, is easily obtained for as little as $5 on the dark web. This number balloons past $100 for personal identifying information that can be leveraged to open brand new accounts. 

Credit card companies cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the inherent risks posed by fraudsters leveraging stolen identities which is why they must seek out solutions. Five out of the top ten credit card issuers trust Intellicheck to curb credit card criminality while speeding up onboarding for legitimate clients. Here’s why.

Accurate Identity Validation 

Intellicheck's ID validation platform delivers accuracy of over 99%, even at high speeds and under heavy volume. This level of precision makes organizations less prone to exploitation. 

Although human involvement is often necessary to complete complex clerical tasks, it can prove detrimental in the ID validation process. People often miss important details on such documents and may not have the resources needed to decode security features. Intellicheck's platform yields consistent results that incorporate the document's text, image and security features simultaneously for proven accuracy.

Speedy Verification

With our help, our client's employees were able to use ID validation results quickly and effectively. Once a driver's license is scanned, our system is able to analyze the applicant's data and quickly return results. 

Financial organizations looking to satisfy KYC requirements in addition to lowering fraud risks often validate customer information using manual methods. These drastically slow down the process and turn some customers away. Human involvement in this process makes it less accurate as well, giving fraudsters a way to slip through undetected.

Credit card issuers cannot afford to frustrate their customers in the face of growing competition from personal lenders and point-of-sale financing. Faster verification ensures potential clients can get started sooner and experience the benefits your company can offer them before being bombarded with enough alternative offers to sway their decision. With Intellicheck's help, you can count on subsecond results to power your onboarding process's security.

Simple Process

Our clients process applications with ease. As applications came in, Intellicheck issued text notifications to each applicant's phone, prompting them to scan their driver's license, and in some cases, to take a selfie. This makes finishing the onboarding process easier for new customers at a critical moment in the decision-making process.

Simplified onboarding keeps new customers engaged. With one in every three financial application abandonments taking place due to the length of the process, the importance of speeding it up through simplification has grown. Completion rates for new account openings with financial organizations do not reach far beyond 30% and any snags in the process can lower this number even more.

The Result

In less than a month our clients have another layer of robust security added to their process and can see an immediate impact–reducing fraud. In part, this is due to Intellicheck’s 99.9% accuracy for ID verification versus the industry average of 60% or less. 

We offer a variety of solutions from ones that you can turn on and use in under an hour, to API-based solutions that can tightly integrate with your systems and experience.

    Fraud assessments are special tests designed to discover your business's current fraud risks. Vulnerabilities of all types must be carefully analyzed and, ultimately, addressed for a complete fraud assessment to work as intended. That’s why it’s important for both internal and external risks to be considered. 

    Professionals in this sphere not only help in identifying existing risks to your organization but also assist in crafting an effective roadmap for responding to such risks, however, if you aim to tackle a fraud assessment on your own, the following checklist is a great start:

    As a business managing age-restricted purchases and engagements, you know that scanning an ID is the quickest way to verify a person’s identity thanks to the barcode found on the back. But did you know that those barcodes differ on driver’s licenses by state?  Each state has different information that is displayed when the barcode is scanned.

    When Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security bill in 1935, a number of protective institutions came into being in the US. Among these, the Unemployment Insurance Program was drafted to help employable people who have lost their jobs.

    In the event that someone loses their job for reasons outside of their control, the Unemployment Insurance and Benefits programs implemented by both the federal government and individual states in the US provide economic relief to compensate. However, this relief is not unconditional and it is not provided indefinitely. Unemployment Insurance is ultimately paid by state governments, with varying qualifying standards, using funds collected through special payroll taxes.

    Unemployment Insurance across the country has historically been greatly needed, with unemployment rates at the height of US prosperity (1929) having rivaled those of Great Britain at its lowest historic point. Without unemployment benefits, many would face severe challenges in-between jobs, even though they might still be willing to work.

    So, what is unemployment fraud and how did it start? Individuals looking to take advantage of the social welfare system could bend the rules when reporting their employment status, location, physical condition, or even their identity. These attempts at unemployment fraud are surprisingly successful, with exorbitant cumulative costs for the system at large. In fact, in 2020, the Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES) reported that it paid out $3.4 million from fraudulent unemployment claims. 

    This kind of fraud wastes federal funds given to the state that might have been better allocated had fraudsters not claimed them and is far too common.
