Financial Services Fraud Prevention


How many times do your employees say “May I see some ID?” Every time that happens—at new accounts, teller line, or elsewhere—it’s an opportunity to cut your losses through bank fraud prevention.

In bank ID verification, and especially out-of-state ID, you need good information to make the right decisions. For more than 50 years, we have served all areas of the financial industry—banks, S&Ls, credit unions, check-cashing companies, and more—helping them to verify ID and protect against ID fraud. Our printed Guides offer compact size for portability, and low cost that makes them ideal for protecting multiple locations. Our online references offer sophisticated ID checking at any location.
