A REVOLUTIONARY NEW PRODUCT OFFERING FAST, COST-EFFECTIVE PROTECTION AGAINST FRAUD WITH NATIONWIDE COVERAGE

Equifax Fraudscan detects, validates, and verifies potentially fraudulent information automatically and simultaneously at the time of application. It monitors every transaction, comparing consumer-provided information against multiple nationwide databases, and issues a flag when it finds known or suspected fraudlent information on an application. By automatically verifying information via a complete name check, along with a comprehensive address and phone number search, Fraudscan eliminates time-consuming and expensive manual checks on flagged information. Consumer data is transformed into standard postal format and a full report is returned within seconds.


A continually-updated on-line or off-line system that helps prevent fraud before it happens

Fraudscan:

  • Verifies applicant’s identity based on name, address and phone number
  • Issues a flag when an applicant’s address is a mail-receiving service, prison, check- cashing site, etc.
  • Reformats applicant information into standard postal format, saving you time by eliminating manual data reformatting
  • Notifies you when a Social Security number has never been issued.. .was issued before the applicant’s date of birth.. .was issued to a person reported deceased.. .or was issued in just the last five years
  • Flags driver’s license formats that are not valid for the state indicated
  • Issues a warning when an area code has — or is about to — change and returns the alternate area code
  • Warns you when an applicant’s phone number does not match their zip code.. .is associated with high-risk service, i.e. wireless phones and pagers.. .or is Invalid
  • Has no consumer disclosure requirement — flags are not part of a consumer’s credit file and cannot be used as a basis for denying credit or employment
