Detecting Document Fraud


For centuries, criminals have used forged documents and falsified identities to perpetrate fraud.  With advancements in technology almost anyone has the ability to generate fake bank statements or utility bills. The growth in online usage and marketplaces has also made it easy to purchase fraudulent identity documents or commit other forms of document fraud (counterfeit, forged &/or fake).  As document fraud increased an estimated 33% from 2021 to 2022, the need for modern methods  has never been more timely & relevant. During this session, learn about technological tools and product features that can be used by fraud examiners to prevent & detect document fraud.
