Traditional payments monitoring systems often do not detect money mules' movements as they secure illicit funds from financial institutions.
To address this problem, NICE Actimize, a NICE business (Nasdaq: NICE), today announced its cloud-first Money Mule Defence Solution designed to detect, investigate and prevent mule account activity occurring throughout the entire customer lifecycle for both existing customers and new accounts. This solution is designed to identify money mules that may either unwittingly be involved in fraudulent transactions or are directly complicit in irregular money movements.
NICE Actimize's Money Mule Defence solution utilizes deep learning models and purpose-built expert features to detect mule activities across multiple event types and channels in real-time. The solution identifies compromised accounts and payors by leveraging the power of NICE Actimize's market leading enterprise fraud management platform IFM-X. NICE Actimize also employs a multi-model execution strategy that utilizes a diverse set of models, techniques, and algorithms to identify and prevent fraud. This allows organisations to quickly adjust their strategy to stay ahead of the most sophisticated fraud schemes.
“NICE Actimize’s innovative approach to identifying money mules encompasses the entirety of the customer payments lifecycle, protecting both inbound and outbound payments,” said Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize. “This advanced method is designed to prevent new mule accounts from being opened, and existing accounts from unwittingly becoming mules, thereby preserving customer relations, stopping mule transactions and reducing potential monetary loss.”
Utilising the power of AI and NICE Actimize’s collective intelligence across the industry, the solution’s model for detecting money mules is continually optimised and enhanced to identify anomalous behaviours and suspicious transactions indicative of money mule activities.
NICE Actimize’s Money Mule Defence solution also leverages the ActOne10 case management network analytics capability for a holistic view of risk and enhanced ability to uncover an entire mule ring.
