Dark Web Check to Mitigate the Risk of Impersonation Fraud


Search over 600 million records on the Dark Web for your customer’s email to prevent fraud from taking place. Acuant Dark Web provides an extra level of security by searching and monitoring a customer’s email against compromised data on the Dark Web. If a match is found against the email address, then the linked data (personal, identity or financial) is returned.


Acuant Dark Web allows you to:

Search: The applicant’s email is searched ad-hoc upon submission

Monitor: The applicant’s email is added to an ongoing monitoring list. Client is alerted if the user’s PII becomes compromised. Only data that has been compromised and advertised, traded or exchanged by criminals is monitored and collected.


Acuant Dark Web delivers ad-hoc search and ongoing monitoring of an applicant’s email address against the largest proprietary database of compromised personal ID information in the industry. Data can be incorporated into client’s existing fraud decision engines aligned to their risk appetite. Matching results can be used as part of AML compliance with 50,000 bank account records used by criminals for money-laundering identified. Data can be used to complement individual transaction / payment screening.


Identity data – Name, national insurance # / social security #, address, passport and driver’s license numbers
Personal data – Email addresses and domains, secret questions and answers, employer, payment provider IDs (PayPal, ebay), usernames and passwords
Financial data – Account numbers, sort codes / routing numbers, card information including PINs
