Impersonation of the deceased (IOD) fraud continues to grow and to effectively protect your business from this threat it is essential that you have robust tools and processes in place to conduct existence checks. Existence checks screen personal contact details against mortality data and consumer datasets to provide you with the confidence that an individual is not deceased and is at their stated residence.
Existence from Tracesmart combines mortality screening (which calls upon death registration information and Halo records) with residency verification (utilising an array of consumer datasets). These checks enable you to:
- Identify the living as stated
- Flag gone aways
- Maintain communication
- Identify the deceased
- Spot potential fraud
- Protect your corporate image
Existence checks are supplied via two service formats – Existence Batch and Existence Alert.
When you need to conduct existence checks on a high volume of individuals, the most efficient method is to employ our Existence Batch screening tool.
