Because organized fraud rings are sharing technology, data, and insights designed to defraud financial institutions, it’s critical that banks and credit unions collaborate to defend against this growing threat.
In this article for BAI, Kevari Founder and President, Adam Elliott, explains that for financial institutions, being a part of a nationwide collaborative network is like having their own investigation unit made up of thousands of expert investigators.

By marking the account-opening attempt, key identity (non-FCRA) elements and associated communication end points associated with this suspicious application are tagged within the system.
