Capture valid mobile numbers only on your contact or registration forms.
Using an SMS as one of the two verifcation steps required to ensure accounts are secure is commonplace. It is therefore vital that the phone numbers banks hold for thier clients are active and reachable. A quick HLR Lookup of each number achieves this.
Almost all fraud prevention techniques require banks to be able to contact thier customers to verfiy they are who they say they are. Ensuring customers provide valid phone numbers is the first step to achieving this.
A HLR Lookup provides details about the phone number that can be used to make informed decisions about that person. Any added information is useful for stamping our fraud.
