Risk Indicators


Confidence Score

A high number score of 400+ it is often a clear sign of risk and fraud


Mismatched Data

We see the level of risk spike with each additional data attribute that doesn’t match.


Email Never Seen or New Email

When we’ve never seen an email before, or it was recently established under 90 days ago, we see high risk of fraud.


Invalid Contact Information

If our records indicate that a phone, address, or email details on the order are invalid, it may require additional review.


Non-Fixed VoIP & Landline Phones

When we see these line types they are often associated with risk and fraudulent orders.


Prepaid Phones

This is a risk indicator for certain transactions, such as larger dollar items or those associated with contract terms.


Proxy IP Address

The order becomes inherently riskier when you are unable to determine the client’s true IP location.

Positive Indicators

Our solution also provides significant value in identifying good transactions, allowing businesses to provide frictionless fulfillment for their best customers.


Confidence Score

A lower number score, 150 and below, is a positive indicator of a good order.


Matching Data

We match the name, phone, address, email, and IP on a transaction to determine if they belong to the same person.


IP Geolocation

It is generally a positive indicator when the transaction comes from an IP address that is near the address or phone on the transaction.


Email First Seen

A longer history of activity associated with the email address, especially over 2 years, provides confirmation of legitimacy.

Our API is integrated into major fraud platforms such as Accertify, CyberSource, and Kount. We also automate via Deep Links into other eCommerce tools and platforms for simplicity and scale.
