LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Delivers Fraud Detection Capabilities and Insight into Identity Event and Application Activity through New LexisNexis® Fraud Intelligence Product

Fraud Intelligence Delivers a 30% Improved Fraud Detection Rate for the Riskiest 3% of Applications Compared to Existing Scores

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions announced LexisNexis® Fraud Intelligence, the newest addition to the company’s suite of fraud and identity products. LexisNexis Fraud Intelligence is a non-FCRA solution that helps organizations mitigate new account fraud risk by bringing together identity events and consumer application activity to arrive at a comprehensive, powerful score that offers complete view of identity. The new tool limits friction for legitimate consumers because it can identify applications in real-time that are most likely fraudulent.

The identity verification and authentication solutions that worked for organizations in the past may not be a match for today’s more sophisticated identity fraud attacks. Risk management professionals tend to combat emerging fraud vectors by imposing more rigorous security measures. Too often, these measures have high false positive rates and any time a company makes legitimate consumers jump through hoops or delays an application approval, the company risks consumers abandoning the process.

LexisNexis Fraud Intelligence analyzes hundreds of unique identity characteristics, identity application behaviors and identity events to provide real-time insight into application fraud risk. It detects inconsistencies and recognizes fraud patterns within application profiles that other fraud tools miss, delivering a fraud risk score, which provides an up-to-date view that predicts the likelihood an application will result in fraud should the consumer open an account. The score also serves as an indicator that a specific fraud risk requires further investigation.

Fraud Intelligence brings a new dimension to traditional fraud detection tools by offering unique insights into identity event and consumer application activity. Better intelligence can strengthen an organization’s identity fraud risk detection and investigation strategy. According to LexisNexis Risk Solutions internal analysis, Fraud Intelligence delivers a 30% improved fraud detection rate for the riskiest 3% of applications compared to legacy fraud risk scores.

The solution is currently available in three forms that target fraudulent activity within a specific industry:

  • Fraud Intelligence Bankcard Score for banks/financial institutions, bankcard issuers, money service businesses and auto lenders
  • Fraud Intelligence Retail Score for retail card issuers
  • Fraud Intelligence Telecommunications/Wireless Score for telecommunications, wireless and utilities (including phone providers)

LexisNexis Fraud Intelligence is the first product to launch as a direct result of the company’s acquisition of ID Analytics in February 2020.
