SentiLink Synthetic Scores
Synthetic Scores - SentiLink’s Synthetic Scores product indicates the likelihood that an identity is synthetic. Three scores are provided on every identity; an Abuse Score, First Party Synthetic Score, and Third Party Synthetic Score.
SentiLink is the only solution that not only detects synthetic identities, but classifies them as 1st party or 3rd party.
The Abuse Score is a composite synthetic fraud score that indicates whether an identity is likely synthetic. It includes instances where an applicant has been tied to synthetic fraud in the past (e.g. tied via address to other synthetic identities or has committed synthetic fraud previously).
The First Party Synthetic Score detects situations where an applicant is using their true name and date of birth, but a Social Security number (SSN) that doesn't belong to them. They are manipulating their true identity.
The Third Party Synthetic Score detects situations where an applicant is using a name, date of birth, and SSN combination that is completely fabricated. This is common among organized crime rings.
Synthetic Scores are made available to clients via API or a user-friendly Dashboard.
The key benefit is that it drives the treatment strategy of those classified identities. For First Party Synthetic Identities, the best treatment is to verify the Social Security number either through a SSA-89 form or eCBSV with the Social Security Administration. For Third Party Synthetic Identities, the best treatment is to ask for a government issued identification.
This classification drives efficient detection and treatment of synthetic identities, as well as prevents losses.
