Synthetic identity fraud remains to be a vexing problem for many financial institutions and organizations today. 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.
