RAID Subscription Fraud

Shut the door to fraud: Criminals are using subscription fraud as an entry to other types of fraud.

Subscription Fraud Is Widely Used to Commit Other Types of Fraud

Subscription fraud involves dishonestly obtaining a person’s personal information that would be required to sign up for new telecom contracts or services, and then using that information with what appears to be a valid authorization, but having no intention of paying for the products and services used.
Subscription fraud is often categorized as bad debt rather than fraud. Operators globally estimate that nearly 40% of all bad debts are actually subscription fraud.

The Out-of-the-box Solution to Fight Subscription Fraud

Recognized as the most damaging of all non-technical fraud methods, Subscription Fraud is the gateway for many other telecom fraud scams. Perpetrators don’t just stop with illegally obtaining service, they usually use it as a precursor to other types of fraud such as Premium Rate Fraud and International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF).
The effects can be catastrophic in terms of escalating complaints, poor customer experience, dissatisfaction among support staff, and diminishing investor confidence.

Embrace the New Dynamic Digital Identity Validation

WeDo Technologies’ Subscription Fraud tool integrates various authentication methods, as personal identification data is often times inconsistent across a multi-channel environment.
The WeDo solution provides a variety of online identification & validation methods to enhance electronic identification and trust, including: knowledge-based validation, phone authentication, address validation, one-time password use, and common usernames. The use of these identity qualifiers also provides important subscriber context, which helps to maintain the accuracy of RAID prebuilt fraud hotlists.

Recognize Customers and the Risk They Represent

There are many complexities brought on by subscriber behavior, with users logging in from multiple devices, locations and channels. Smart authentication relies on a deep understanding of not only the digital identity of a connecting user, but their history too. By combining shared global intelligence, it is possible to streamline onboarding, prevent account takeovers and detect insider threats.
The subscriber access to content and services must meet strong authentication requirements. For this reason, the WeDo Subscription Fraud solution automatically executes a due diligence algorithm that gathers subscriber information in order to understand the risk they might represent to an organization.

Staying Secure in the Digital Ecosystem

In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), the need for widespread identity management is growing. It is no longer just about identifying people and managing their access to different types of data (i.e. sensitive data, non-sensitive data, device data, etc.).
In a world where everything is connected, identity management practitioners must be able to identify devices, sensors, monitors, and manage these systems’ access to sensitive and non-sensitive data. WeDo Technologies Subscription Fraud solution provides a unique value proposition for telecom operators that want to seamlessly ensure identity security is sound from the very beginning.

ML & AI Fraud Detection Models Designed for Subscription Fraud

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the advanced tools needed to combat fraud. They enable anti-fraud teams to process vast quantities of data in near real-time, detect fraudulent patterns and then pass on to a team of anti-fraud experts for further investigation. This allows for the collaboration on training data, the creation of shared models and , inference results, and the validation of those results.
Applied to real data in an automated, low latency manner, these results can affect current business activities, offering a real competitive advantage for organizations. If harnessed and leveraged correctly, machine learning methods can adapt to new and unidentified patterns as underlying changes occur.
