While the Internet can be a great source of revenue for companies, it can also pose additional risk – simply because online and face-to-face transactions must be validated in different ways. The importance of verifying an individual's age cannot be understated when it comes to the sale of products that are intended only for adult consumption. Companies cannot afford to make a mistake when selling such products. Equally important, when creating an online community – such as a dating or dieting site – companies must ensure that the web site's users are legally able to access those services, in order to protect the audiences served by such sites.

LexisNexis® Instant Age Verify can help solve an age verification problem. Using one of the largest databases of consumer information, we use proprietary match logic algorithms and multiple data elements designed to help you confirm the consumer's identity and determine age.

LexisNexis Instant Age Verify can be used by many types of businesses to quickly and easily help confirm an individual's age:

  • Manufacturers of age-restricted products, such as alcohol, tobacco and firearms.
  • Fulfillment firms that ship or deliver age-restricted products.
  • Internet businesses such as dieting sites or dating services.
  • Firms that manage membership clubs for Internet businesses or products which have age requirements.

White Paper

  1. LexisNexis® 2011 True Cost of Fraud Study
    Retail fraud continues to be a $100+ billion problem burdening merchants. To help businesses more effectively battle this issue, LexisNexis® retained Javelin Strategy & Research conduct this third annual study on US retail merchant fraud.

    This landmark study includes research of unprecedented scope conducted with over 1,000 merchants, financial institution executives and over 5,000 consumers. No study has so comprehensively assessed the costly nature of criminal methods, industry solutions and merchant needs across channels, company size, payment methods and industry segments.

    Among many in-depth findings of the 2011 study: continuing the downward trend from last year, total merchant fraud losses declined year over year but they continue to be a $100+ billion problem. However, fraud rates could be poised for an upswing. From the merchant's perspective, although the number of fraudulent transactions went down this year, the nature of transactions is trending to be more severe - the average dollar value of a completed fraudulent transaction is higher this year than what was reported last year. Top issues for US merchants who ship internationally - delay in payment confirmation, verification of customer identity, limited jurisdiction, and ability to reclaim merchandise and costs. International merchants also say they are more vulnerable to "friendly" fraud than domestic-only retailers

    This report is structured to help merchants benchmark and improve their efforts in the costly battle against fraud.
