Safeguard Against Indentity Theft

The ever increasing incidence of identity theft and the consequential production of counterfeit documents is aiding illegal immigration and financially related fraud.
The responsibility of detecting and reporting illegal activity using legal and regulatory measures such as the 2006 Immigration Act, Money Laundering Regulations and the Basle II Accord has been passed on, by Government, to companies and organisations.

The penalties for non-compliance can result in unlimited fines, prison sentences and ultimately, the disqualication of company directors.

The scanner is accurate, fast and easy to use. Using a variety of light sources and RFID, it veries documents such as passports, driving licences, work and residency permits, and any other document with in built security features. All scanned data is recorded where the information can be forensically examined and veried. The device digitally stores the data it captures and will reduce administration time and costs by using the validated information to populate application or other HR forms.

“The trade in counterfeit passports is operating on an uncontrollable scale”

Detective Superintendent Bob Murrill, Scotland Yard, Radio Five Live

VeriScan Document ScannerVeriScan was developed to address this issue. The VeriScan solution features a highly sophisticated multi-spectrum scanner that interrogates the security features of a document issued by Governments, organisations or regulatory bodies. The scanner confirms whether dates are valid and if document security or number algorithms are matched.

Importantly, the device is tamper proof, which avoids the potential of staff collusion. A central feature of VeriScan is the preventative aspect.  Once fraudulent individuals are aware that the documentation they offer as proof of identity and ability to work in the UK will be electronically scanned and interrogated, a percentage will discontinue their application. This minimises wasted management time interviewing and ultimately, recruiting the wrong employee.

To enhance the VeriScan service it can be a standalone service or networked.  Our extensive information sources provide reports that give an extremely high condence in the authenticity of an individual’s official documents.

VeriScan is a global solution that validates the supporting documents employers should be able to rely on when interviewing job applicants; positive proof that candidates are who they really say they are.
