Full Protection against scams. From day 1.

Authorised Push Payment scams are the fastest‑growing fraud type, with investment scams rising by 193% in five years. In the U.K. losses during the first half of 2022 were £249.1 million.

For the top 200 U.S. financial institutions (FIs), scams were a quarter of fraudulent transactions, with average losses of over $100 million in 2021.

The financial services industry has been working with Featurespace to find a solution to protect their organizations and their customers from losses.

ARIC™ Scam Detect from Featurespace is our response.

What are Authorised Push Payment scams?

Authorised Push Payment (APP) scams occur when a customer is persuaded by a criminal into transferring money to an account the criminal controls. Despite FIs ensuring the customer is genuine, once an APP scam is executed it is difficult to reverse or retrieve the funds.

How ARIC™ Scam Detect works

Analyzes payment authorization requests and returns a score indicating the probability of a scam.

Profiles genuine behavior for each customer and other entities so there is no need for biometric or device ID data to detect the scam.

Identifies deviations: ARIC™ Scam Detect will check the transaction against the profile for unusual patterns and threshold violations.
