City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
US Bankcard Services, Inc. (USBSI) is excited to present its merchants with AuthenticID services. AuthenticID provides ID authentication using a scanner that has built-in barcode and magnetic stripe readers, which use multiple light sources to detect ID fraud. This service was previously used by government and financial institutions to help comply with certain “Know Your Customer” laws and the “Red Flag Rule,” but is now available for use by all businesses through AuthenticID.
AuthenticID’s scanner uses software that contains most North American and international government issued IDs, performs dozens of validation tests, and matches the IDs against a document library. When the scanner reads an ID, it sees different pieces of information, including visible patterns, infrared images, and microprint and patterns. The AuthenticID performs tests on the different parts of the ID and assigns it a risk factor. If the risk factor exceeds a pre-specified number, AuthenticID will alert merchants that the ID may not be genuine.
The scan process takes only a few seconds to complete and scans driver licenses, green cards, and identification cards. Merchants who are most vulnerable to identity fraud: liquor store owners, businesses that serve alcohol, jewelers, and others who sell other high end retail items will benefit most from having AuthenticID, although any or all merchants can use this service. USBSI is pleased to introduce AuthenticID to its merchants because it is confident they will benefit from its fraud detection services.
