Managing risk one customer at a time.

Customer ID Verification

It’s just good business to know your customers. 

In the days of identity theft and with the regulatory updates to the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) of 2003 (also known as Red Flag Rules), an identity theft prevention program is critical to the success of your company and your relationships with customers. Depending on your industry and company’s tolerance for risk, VeriFirst can instantly provide you with the information you need to remain compliant with Red Flag Rule screenings. With recent updates to FACTA, your company may even be required to institute a full-cycle identity theft prevention program.

Screenings Get Started


Such industries include, but are not limited to:














A manual review of potential 'hits' on a criminal record database search. Our trained and FCRA certified staff will review and update records prior to release, helping ensure accuracy, and reduce the risk of false-positive matches to your Applicant.


VeriFirst Provides

Customer ID Verification

Instantaneous verification of identity, including: full name, social security number, date of birth, known aliases, and prior address history. A comprehensive search of individuals associated with the same SSN is also performed to prevent fraud.

OFAC Specially Designated Nationals

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States. OFAC acts under Presidential national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze assets under US jurisdiction. Many of the sanctions are based on United Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments. 


Based on regulatory requirements and / or your tolerance for risk, establish the frequency for re-verifying your customer base against the OFAC SDN list.

Application Failure Alert

VeriFirst will monitor your weekly screening activity (credit fails, criminal fails, etc.) and deliver a mobile-friendly email alert to the corresponding regional manager/corporate users of the property(s) at risk based on tolerances that you define. The alert will allow users to link directly to a new failed application summary report, which will provide additional insight as to why applications are failing your current screening criteria.
