Fraud Risk Scoring – Phone Reputation Score

Phone Reputation Scoring in Real Time

Fraud Check Delivers a Risk Assessment or Reputation Score

Fraud Check delivers real-time security intelligence and data on telephone numbers. Covering the US and international markets allows greater certainty and protection from fraudsters. Your lookup is done using live data. As a result, outdated information and stale databases don’t impact the fraud risk scoring.

The score is based on telecom data, traffic patterns, and previously reported fraud. Scores range from 0 to 1000 and include recommended risk levels. Ultimately, this allows you to block, notify, or allow.

Fraud Risk Scoring Improves Your Data Quality

All things considered, registration fraud is spreading. Similarly, people and robots are signing up for fake accounts on web and mobile apps at a record pace. Furthermore, these accounts are often used for social spam—such as driving affiliate traffic, malware proliferation, or promoting other websites. It is important to realize this activity can damage brand reputation and user growth.
