Data-driven insight provides advantages

LexID®, the advanced linking technology from LexisNexis, aggregates information from over 34 billion records and intelligently examines the data interconnections to provide clear perspective into the complex world of identity fraud. With an identity repository of more than 95% of the U.S. adult population, including entities with limited credit and financial histories, no other provider can offer the level of sophistication, coverage and fraud prediction.

Fraud risk—ranked and scored with precision

FraudPoint reveals fraud characteristics not evident in standard verification and validation processes by catching inconsistencies in applicant and account information.

With access to the most authoritative data and analytics, FraudPoint® Score is an analytic scoring solution that delivers critical, relevant insight that can substantially improve your ability to predict and prevent fraud—and recognize and approve authentic customers. An easy-to-interpret, three-digit score ranks individuals according to their calculated risk to commit fraud, making the decision process simple.

Better mitigate risk earlier in the process and let FraudPoint effectively rank order fraud up-front—saving operational costs and fraud loss expense.

Increase efficiency—increase profits

FraudPoint Score is reported with six fraud-indicative warning codes for high-risk conditions. To help pinpoint the type of fraud most likely being perpetrated against your organization, one of six innovative fraud type indices is dynamically calculated and provided. Not only will you be preventing fraud as you identify legitimate new customers, but you'll also be doing it quickly. This frees up your time to handle larger volumes of work or focus time and attention on other pressing business needs.

Accurate risk assessment

The effectiveness of a predictive score depends on the quality of the underlying data used to produce it. FraudPoint scores are generated from a vast collection of public records and non-traditional, proprietary information. This data is then used to assess the likelihood that an individual will potentially commit fraud.

Comprehensive data sources

FraudPoint incorporates a wealth of constantly updated public records and can evaluate up to 75 million more consumers than traditional credit bureaus. Once the data is gathered from multiple sources, it goes through a sophisticated linking and analytics process that ultimately assigns a score based on fraud potential or the lack thereof. Our comprehensive suite of investigative tools allows you to quickly research and resolve fraud cases.

Convenient ordering and delivery options

Available in batch, XML and a simple user interface, FraudPoint solutions can be used in conjunction with other LexisNexis identity verification and authentication solutions to strengthen your prevention strategy and supporting programs.
