As a result of the partnership with FMT, Experian has integrated additional services such as address and drivers licence number validation into the fraud prevention service. Experian’s clients and their customers will benefit from the enhanced level of protection Hunter can deliver in real-time protecting themselves from ever increasing fraud threats.
