TeleSign Helps Global Internet Payments Provider Fight Fraudsters and Ensure Online Security

AlertPay Uses Telephone Verification and PhoneID to Reduce Fraud and Spam (October 25, 2011)

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/11 -- TeleSign, a market leader in Internet fraud prevention and web-based user identification, access, and authentication services, today announced that global payments provider, AlertPay, is using TeleSign Telephone Verification and PhoneID products to reduce fraud rates by up to eight percent.

After implementing TeleSign's Telephone Verification, AlertPay was able to decrease its fraud rate by five percent -- a significant number given the volume of transactions AlertPay processes every day. The enhanced ability to block non-fixed VoIP numbers with TeleSign PhoneID enabled AlertPay to drive down fraud rates eight percent while alleviating the resource strain of manual reviews. AlertPay also found that just using Telephone Verification was effective in deterring most basic fraudsters.

"The beauty of TeleSign is that it provides a real-time identification that is relatively inexpensive, as well as scalable, so that we can apply it to a large number of clients without adversely affecting the user experience," said Mohammed Hashemi, Director of Product Strategy, AlertPay. "The process is quick, convenient, and reliable."
