PSCU Adds Weapon to Fraud-Fighting Arsenal, Proactively Predicting and Preventing Fraud Before It Occurs

CUSO uses Linked Analysis to contribute to $200 million in annual fraud thwarted

PSCU, the nation’s premier payments CUSO, now has another weapon to help it predict and defend against fraud: Linked Analysis enables PSCU to look at the connection between accounts in an effort to identify fraud before it occurs. The company has seen an exponential month-to-month increase in fraud blocked since it launched Linked Analysis in April.

Linked Analysis uses cross-network analytics to create a 360° view of a member, enabling PSCU to link events across different platforms, individuals across different institutions, merchants across any card, and all of these points to each other. Using these connections, data scientists at PSCU then utilize research and machine learning to proactively take action. 

“The most recent addition to our integrated suite of fraud offerings, Linked Analysis allows us to provide comprehensive, integrated fraud protection across channels, rapidly identifying linkages, compromises, breaches and common points of purchase,” said Jack Lynch, Chief Risk Officer at PSCU. “By using shared intelligence to predict and defend against fraud, we are enabling a greater member experience for our Owners.”
