Account Creation

Promo abuse, synthetic identity fraud, and buyer-seller collusion are some of the biggest forms of abuse at account creation. The risk is centered around people creating false identities or abusing campaigns for new users. A strategy to address this form of fraud is the most nuanced, based on industry regulations and user risk.

Reward

  • Maximize marketing dollars
  • Unlock products and features only offered to trusted users
  • Easily store information for future purchases, usage of product, user history
  • Ability to provide special offers, promos, and discounts

Risk

  • Waste promotional dollars recruiting the same user to your platform.
  • Derailing engineering timelines
  • Free trial and referral abuse
  • Fake and synthetic identities
  • Storing sensitive data and PII make you a target for data breaches
  • Fake accounts
  • Buyer-seller collusion
  • Bringing on a disjointed list of case management tooling, making it hard to make decisions efficiently.

What to do?

  • Confirm user identity using KYC (Know Your Customer) services.
  • Verify users' identity documentation
  • Utilize identity intelligence tools and exclude individuals with AML or OFAC concerns (based on identity information and related account history)
  • Use data intelligence tools to score risks around emails, IP addresses, phone numbers, etc.
  • Depending on trust & risk levels, change the in-product user experience with smart friction such as a request for more information or further risk checks
  • Define policies for manual agent review
  • Create a queue of risky users for agent review
  • Develop a method to keep the team accountable
