Is your vendor who they say they are?

31st October 2016

Fraudsters often deal with the transaction remotely and avoid all face-to-face contact. Electronic checks require a greater level of detail and accuracy about the legal owner to help identify potential impersonation fraud, including:

  • National Insurance Number
  • Passport Number
  • Driving Licence Number
  • Mitigation of Impersonation Risk

Where an agent does not meet its client face-to-face the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG) recommends Mitigation of Impersonation Risk checks be undertaken.
