Synthetic Identity Fraud: A Costly Challenge
In synthetic identity fraud (SIF) attacks, global criminal organizations use a combination of elements from real identities to create fraudulent accounts and steal staggering amounts from financial institutions.
Designed to Evade Detection
SIF profiles are generated automatically in high volumes, and are specifically designed to evade traditional fraud detection systems. This approach allows fraudsters to create accounts at multiple institutions, build positive credit histories over time, and increase their borrowing power before “busting out.”
