Global identity documents checked

Unfortunately, fraud is prevalent and increasing due to the trend of rising migration. In the field of illegal working, the most common types of fraud are:

  • Fabricated identity documents
  • Identity theft (using another persons ID)
  • Partially fabricated document (e.g. replacing the true holder’s photo)

You can reduce your risk of employing an illegal worker by using technology which recognises counterfeit documents, and at the same time, reduce the risk of general employee fraud.

You’ll remove the need for manual intervention and its associated errors, and instantly check your employees are providing a legitimate proof of identity.

We check the details against the widest and most current global identity data. Which means the most comprehensive match rates and fraud prevention results.
