Do you want to fight against upcoming fraud and comply with the regulatory obligation?

This new service combating Fraud.

Fraudsters are constantly evolving, and the threat of APP (Authorised push payment) fraud is growing. In this fraud pattern a fraudster tricks victims into making substantial transfers to accounts under their control. To safeguard your finances and improve customer satisfaction, the new regulations require payment service providers to enable payers to verify the beneficiary’s IBAN and name before executing the payment.

The Power of Verification.

Our solution is built upon providing you access to a large network of beneficiary banks and verifying the match of the beneficiary account holder’s name with the provided name through advanced syntactical and phonetical checks. We also support multiple account holders and corporate names. The results can be a clear confirmation (a match), a recommended correction (a close match), or a warning (no match). This enables the payer to review the data provided and make a final decision for the payment.

End-Customer Experience

The IBAN Name Check will be integrated into the payment application of the respective payment service provider.
