ST. PAUL, Minn.-Deluxe Financial Services, a business unit of Deluxe Corporation has teamed up with Primary Payment Systems Inc., an affiliate of First Data Corp., to help financial institutions fight fraud. Deluxe Detect, powered by Early Warning, is a new relationship-screening tool that enables financial institutions to reduce fraud at the new account desk by providing real time identity verification and reliable risk assessment. New applicants are screened against the Early Warning databases, which contain public and non-public data, including contributions directly from financial institutions and other financial services organizations. The service also helps fulfill key provisions of Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act pertaining to identity verification. “The new account desk represents a financial institution’s first line of defense against fraud,” said Paul Finch, CEO, Primary Payment Systems. “Through this alliance, we’ve combined our risk management expertise with Deluxe’s market reach and electronic connectivity to over 7,500 banks and credit unions. As the fraud landscape continues to change, the Early Warning services, which power Deluxe Detect, represent the foundation for what will become a wide range of capabilities designed to address risk wherever it may present itself.”
