The fully automated process is completed in under 10 seconds, which manually could take hours or even days. Operation is simple - users upload or use the camera on their device to take a picture of a document - credit card statements, driver licenses, and utility or phone bills - that includes their physical address. Veriff then scans the document and automatically reads and extracts key details like names, residential addresses, dates, and transaction information. In addition to speed, the data-driven fraud detection is consistent, auditable, and reliably detects fraudulent forms of identification.
“Proof of address has been one of the greatest friction points in clients’ onboarding flows, yet it’s a crucial step to meet regulatory requirements,” said Kaarel Kotkas, Veriff founder and CEO. “With Veriff’s enhanced automated data extraction capabilities, the new solution makes the process multiple times faster and efficiently blocks fraudulent attempts.”

When carrying out due diligence, a financial institution must determine whether they should perform customer due diligence (CDD) or enhanced due diligence (EDD). This is because FATF guidance suggests that companies should adopt a risk-based approach to due diligence that reflects the specific level of risk that each individual customer presents.
Synthetic fraud is incredibly dangerous and is a major problem facing the financial sector. Unlike third-party fraud, where an entire identity is stolen and used to defraud enterprises and victims, synthetic fraud frequently has no specific consumer victim.
