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.
