With its widespread impact and continuing proliferation, it is considered one of the fastest-growing types of financial crimes in the U.S. Significantly, without a comprehensive understanding of synthetic identity fraud, detection can become an increasingly difficult task. Although banks and other companies have been investing in technologies that offer help, financial crimes continue to surface, chiefly due to the lack of solutions that focus on detection and prevention.
