How does outsourcing a loan processing call center prevent a high risk of fraudulent transactions?

Fraudulent transactions have been the main problem for any financial institution in the US. Many businesses hope outsourcing a loan processing call center can alleviate this situation. The fraud call rate is one in every 1,400 calls in retail banks. Meanwhile, it is higher in credit card issuers at one per 800 calls. While this may sound small compared to what they’re getting, it’s more considerable when you get the total loss. Retail banks lose more than $11 million annually because of fraudsters. Furthermore, credit unions doubled it, with a $29 million loss annually.


With this in mind, let’s take a look at how outsourcing in a call center company can prevent fraudulent transactions:

Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics refers to using data to foresee your clients’ tendencies. This data depends on the customers you encounter throughout your operations. For example, a legitimate loan applicant will ask for the data you need before proceeding with the transaction. Meanwhile, a professional fraudster already knows the paperwork needed. So they will be more proactive about finishing the transaction faster. You can analyze these behaviors based on isolated cases you have with fraud callers. That’s why BPO should have this procedure to ensure the legitimacy of every application.


Phone Printing

Caller ID is no longer a helpful feature in determining the caller’s legitimacy. Sometimes, fraudsters use Skype to create a spoofed call ID that looks like a customer’s number. One good thing about using phone printing is that you can detect where the fraud is calling from. So, they may be using a local phone number, but they’re calling from Europe.

When detected, BPO companies will categorize the phone number as a blocklist. They will use this to compare with other incoming calls. They will use this blocklist phone number to compare with other incoming calls.

It is essential to compare it as 70% of call center fraud in one company is the work of the same caller. So, blocklisting them will surely stop them from their overall scheme.


Call Biometrics

Speaking of comparison, call biometrics is filtering the fraudsters’ voices. Then, it will immediately route them to the blocked phone number.

You can use this security feature by installing an internet voice response (IVR) to your hotline. Callers should answer this voice prompt before reaching a financial call center agent.

While doing it, your system can process whether the caller belongs to a blocked number. Call biometrics is a perfect way to avoid fraud callers before the attack. Your agents no longer need to interact with you; they might persuade them to process their loan. Some might say that callers can use voice changers to alter what the system can detect. That’s why you must have multi-layered security, like a combination of phone printing and call biometrics.


Effects of Fraudulent Transaction Credit Services Outsourcing

Aside from monetary reasons, fraudulent transactions in credit services affect financial institutions. Here are some of its adverse effects:

  • Decreased in the Quality of Customer Service
  • Bad Credibility of Your Institution
  • Additional Regulatory Risk
  • Brand Damage

These are all essential to keep business with your clients. There’s a tendency for them to look for another bank as they can’t trust your process due to all the fraud incidents you have.


What is the Future of Mortgage Processing Support Services?

The “New Normal” provides new challenges in processing mortgage applications. The US government passed a law protecting applicants against high mortgage rates and other process fees.

That’s why a lot of lending companies outsource their function overseas.


Here are some innovations made by BPO companies to ease loan modification:

1. Faster Loan Processing Time. – This will help many small lending companies to gain more applicants as they can market their fast turnaround time. BPO companies can provide software to make the process easier and more convenient.

2. More Emphasis on Average Handling Time. – There is not much priority when it comes to the call center of a financial institution before a pandemic. But now, they’re taking time to answer calls as it’s the way customers ask for their payment status since no one can go outside.

3. Reduce the Risk of High Foreclosure Rate. Lending companies are now hiring outbound agents to call customers about their existing balances. This eliminates any incident of unreported abandoned property due to the inability to pay the outstanding balance.
