Advanced Fraud Solutions (AFS) announced an agreement with Fiserv that will allow Fiserv financial institution clients to automate check fraud detection, risk-based funds availability and decisioning processes. This will help in preventing losses and identify fraudulent deposits before they are accepted.
According to the 2022 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey, checks were the payment method most impacted by fraud activity in 2021. Organizations experience significant losses due to check fraud every year, and it is essential for financial institutions to embrace advanced risk mitigation tools to combat sophisticated fraud schemes.
AFS and Fiserv to Find New Ways to Detect and Prevent Frauds
TrueChecks from AFS will enable Fiserv clients to mitigate fraud, prevent losses, and protect account holders by providing a proactive, at-the-point-of-presentment approach to check fraud detection. Accessible through a web portal or integrated through an API, TrueChecks delivers real-time responses on counterfeit, nonsufficient funds (NSF), Closed Account, Duplicate and other fraudulent items, regardless of the deposit channel. TrueChecks will be available to Fiserv clients for batch deposits made in any channel, and will provide real-time responses for mobile deposits and those made via tMagic™ for DNA®, which automates the capture, imaging and entry of paper-based transactions directly into the DNA account processing platform from Fiserv.
“As fraudsters continue to find new schemes to commit fraud in all payment types, including checks, it is important that financial institutions have the tools they need to mitigate risk and protect themselves and their customers,” said Jordan Bothwell, VP, Strategic Partnerships at AFS.
Jordan added, “Together with Fiserv we will meet more financial organizations’ needs for robust solutions to combat fraud.”
With this new risk mitigation offering, Fiserv clients have access to robust options to help prevent losses and identify fraudulent deposits before they are accepted. TrueChecks can be applied across deposit channels, from the teller to mobile and remote channels – including ATMs and ITMs – to ensure all deposit channels are protected.
