Identity Fraud Rings – The New Friends and Family Plan

Identity fraud ring- a group of people actively collaborating to commit identity fraud

ISeeFraudRingsimage.JPGWhile some fraud rings are made up of what is considered typical criminal “professionals,” many others are seemingly innocuous people and may look just like your friends and neighbors. In fact, many active fraud rings are formed by friends and extended family members.

According to a recent study by ID Analytics’ ID:A Labs, there are more than 10,000 identity fraud rings in the U.S. This study is the first to systematically find many thousands of identity fraud rings, which was accomplished by developing an algorithm capable of automating the process of examining the interconnections between identity fraudsters to uncover rings of organized activity. Topics covered include:

  •          What types of fraud are these groups engaged in?
  •          Where are these fraud rings located?
  •          Are they targeting specific industries?
  •          What are the emerging fraud trends I should be on the lookout for?
