Real-Time Check Fraud Detection Helps Reduce Fraud Losses & Protect Customers

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) estimates approximately $18.7 Billion loss annually due to check fraud. Checks are still a vulnerable payment channel with numerous companies experiencing actual or attempted check fraud. Check fraud is increasing majorly because financial institutions (FIs) have launched mobile remote deposit capture (RDC), allowing consumers to deposit checks directly from their mobile devices and have funds instantly available. FIs need to accurately predict whether the deposit behavior is risky, so they can set effective funds-availability strategies and stop check fraud in real time, without impacting the experience of legitimate customers.

Real-Time Check Fraud Detection

Fraudsters have become highly skilled in execution and sophisticated in approach as a result of advances in technology and evolution of personal computers, scanners and color photocopiers. Criminals today are adept in defrauding you and your organization without many hassles by taking a blank check from your check book, a check that you may have emailed to pay a bill or a canceled check you may have disposed. Therefore, it is very important today to adopt a logical approach and preventive sense to defeat such malicious check fraud attempts.
