PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2015) - iovation, the digital reputation authority, today announced it will detail ways to detect fraud at short-term loan origination at LEND360, the online lending industry's premier conference. Jay Johns, iovation's Business Development Representative, will speak alongside Kevin King, Senior Consultant at ID Analytics, and Bilal Rizvi, Director of Fraud & Verification Strategy at Prosper Marketplace. The presentation, "Mitigating the Risk of Fraud," takes place Wednesday, October 14 at 11:30am EDT at the Sheraton Atlanta.

"It's essential to be aware of fraud when it first strikes even when it's outside of your specific industry," said Johns. "For instance, we've found that 93 percent of initial fraud occurrences using a stolen identity took place within a single market then expanded to new industries after nine to 12 months. It's also imperative to detect fraud at loan origination rather than at fund disbursement. That's because mitigating fraud after it's occurred is an extremely costly and time intensive process."

During Johns' LEND360 presentation, he will specifically address:

  • Understanding fraud behaviors and evasion techniques at loan origination
  • The latest lending fraud trends and ways criminals leverage identity
  • The scale at which fraud loss impacts the lending industry
  • How to determine a transaction's risk level by analyzing anomalies around velocity, geolocation, Real IP and other factors
