Tackling Synthetic Fraud: Our Detection Solutions

The rise of synthetic fraud has become a pressing concern for Australian businesses across all industries. As a complex and evolving form of identity theft, synthetic fraud involves criminals creating fictitious identities by combining real and fabricated information. They open fraudulent accounts, obtain credit, and eventually inflict significant financial losses on businesses and financial institutions.

types of fraud

Understanding Types of Synthetic Fraud

Synthetic fraud can manifest in various forms, making it essential for businesses to be aware of the different types in order to implement targeted prevention strategies. The most common types of synthetic fraud include;

1. Manipulated or Blended; In this type, criminals use a combination of real and fake information. This makes it difficult to link the fraud back to a specific individual.

2. Fabricated; Here, all the information used to create a synthetic identity is entirely fictional. This includes fake names, licence numbers, addresses and other personal contact details.

3. Self-Synthetic; In self-synthetic fraud, individuals create an identity using their own personal information but altering certain details, such as address and contact information. This is often done to escape debt or bad credit history associated with their actual identity.

BNPL Client
Head of Data

"As a debt recovery agency, locating customers is central to our operations. We have experimented with various systems in the past, but none have matched Caspar's capabilities. It stands out for its extensive data volume, unmatched accuracy, and reliability. Caspar has become our primary tool."

Credit Collection Client
GM of Operations

"Traditionally, we relied solely on internal data sources and programs, but subscribing to Caspar has marked a significant advancement for our operations. Initially, we intended to use Caspar exclusively in our KYC and fraud detection teams. However, impressed by its performance and the quality of data, we expanded its application to include our credit risk and collections departments. A great tool."

Major Banking Client
Head of Data Sourcing

"Caspar has been so important on how we approach lending and investment decisions in Australia. It provides us with comprehensive background data that is crucial for customer decision-making. What sets Caspar apart is its access to a broader range of alternative data, which goes beyond standard information sources. This capability has significantly improved our risk management practices."

Finance & Leasing Client
Chief Risk Officer

"Caspar has proven to be an invaluable asset for our operations. It not only allows us to reconnect with clients within seconds but also serves as a comprehensive tool for background screening during our hiring processes. We also use it for customer file enrichment, employment verification, and fraud checks. Highly recommend!"

Insurance Client
Team Leader Operations

"We have used cheaper skiptracing software offered out there, but I guess you pay for what you get. Caspar is so much more advanced than anything else we have used. The other skiptracing systems I have used were so outdated compared to Caspar."

Private Investigator
Managing Director

"We need to be able to disclose the data lineage to our customers if asked. Caspar is the only solution that allows our compliance team to do that. We won't use the others as they don't support us with disclosing their data origins."
