Support for scam investigations

If you are a business or individual victim of scams and/or fraud, Haagsch Recherchebureau can support you with a criminal investigation. Examples include: absenteeism fraud, breach of non-competition clause, alimony investigations, housing fraud and missing persons investigations.

Previously, the Haagsch Recherchebureau primarily used e-mail addresses and telephone numbers to retrieve information. To increase their chances of detection, but also as evidence in investigations such as the above, Haagsch Recherchebureau went looking for parties that check IBAN & Name and came across SurePay. Haagsch Recherchebureau has been using the IBAN-Name Check portal for almost a year now.

Two major advantages: the PDF with matching results can be added to the research file and used as evidence for the client.

Fraud and scam investigations

When conducting a scam investigation, the IBAN-Name Check portal makes it much easier to see if you may be dealing with a money mule (also known as a cat-catcher). A money mule is someone who makes his/her account available for fraud and often gets paid for it. 

The IBAN-Name Check portal is also used in cases such as alimony investigations. In addition to being able to see how many account holders the account has, you get back how long the account has existed and whether it has been closed or linked to another account.

Internal use

For Haagsch Recherchebureau, it is important to work only for parties of integrity. Therefore, every new client (both corporate and private) is screened. The IBAN-Name Check portal is also used in this process. This goes unnoticed unless an anomaly is spotted. In that case, the IBAN-Name Check also plays an important role in the ID Check, which is always performed at screening.

For example: an ID check shows that the ID has been stolen. An IBAN-Name Check is then performed. “No match” on the account holder then often comes out. This means the account belongs to someone other than who the ID belongs to. In that case, Haagsch Recherchebureau can report it to the police to prevent further abuse.

"With SurePay's IBAN-Name Check, we verify gathered investigative information, obtain a detection indication and screen our new and existing clients."
