Reduce Fraud with the ID Scanner
In today’s digital age, technological advancements have simplified our lives in many ways. The use of technology, however, comes with a warning: beware of fraud. Computer viruses, e-mail fraud, and identity theft are just a few of the threats that come with modern conveniences. Fortunately, new technology like the ID Scanner can be used to counter fraudulent acts.
Identity theft is the act of having one’s identity stolen. Every government has a system in place to identify its citizens. ID cards, driver’s licenses, and birth certificates are all examples of government-issued identification needed in all sorts of practical circumstances. Before the ID Scanner, there was no way to verify the authenticity of these documents. Without ID Scanner technology, workers were dependent on their own judgment to determine ID authenticity. Today’s ID Scanner technology doesn’t rely on the abilities of an overworked clerk. Instead, it eliminates guesswork and human error completely.
The ID Scanner is compact enough to be the perfect fit for a counter, desk, or computer top. It makes use of a camera and simple technology. By placing a driver’s license in front of the camera, a quick scan of the ID is performed. The scanner first detects whether or not the ID is authentic by reading the hidden electronic watermark present in all driver’s license cards. As it determines authenticity, it also extracts full images from the ID of the whole card including the photograph, text and signature. All of this information is then transferred to a software format and each piece of data is filled into the appropriate fields. The ID reader performs all of these functions in about 23 seconds.
Many companies and government offices today are using advanced technology to ensure the integrity of identity. Products such as the ID Scanner ensure, without a doubt, that the ID they are checking is authentic. To the naked eye, the differences are subtle but the scanner can detect fraud with perfect accuracy in less than 5 seconds.
With today’s ID Scanner, the detection of fraudulent identity is no longer subject to human error. Instead, identity theft can be drastically reduced with a quick and simple scan.
