Synthetic identity is one of the fastest-growing types of fraud

Cheap and easy to access Personal Identifiable Information, as well as the increased frequency of data breaches, fuels the growth of synthetic identities. Without proper checks during onboarding, companies risk bad actors gaining access to their platforms, leaving businesses with significant, un-recoupable losses.

Synthetic identity fraud causes:

  • Reputational harm
  • Severe financial losses
  • Reduced customer loyalty
  • Social media scams
