Instant Identity Verification for Today's Digital Economy


By 2020, retail chargebacks caused by fraud are estimated to reach $31 billion with ecommerce fraud accounting for 65% of all fraud value. Additionally, rising synthetic ID fraud is affecting both the payments industry and consumers. The Federal Reserve recently identified the trend as the fastest growing type of financial crime in the US representing 85% of all identity fraud, and accounting for 80% of all credit card fraud losses, and nearly one-fifth of credit card charge-offs.

Synthetic Identity Fraud: A Costly Challenge

Real-life scammers continue to come up with creative ways to commit crimes, notably in the financial services arena. This is especially true with schemes like synthetic identity fraud where identities are built with a number of different identity components.


While both are typically used for financial gain, identity theft and synthetic identities differ in the actual utilization of the stolen personally identifiable information (PII). Unlike traditional identity theft where a fraudster uses only a specific individual’s stolen—yet real—information, synthetic identities are created by fraudsters using elements of both real and fictitious PII. This “identity” is then used to obtain a loan or large credit line, but it’s never paid back.
