Zoot identifies significant savings opportunities associated with upcoming Red Flag regulationsMortgagePress.comZoot, red flags, mortgage fraud, FACT Act Zoot, a provider of advanced instant credit decisioning and loan origination solutions, has identified significant savings opportunities associated with fraud reduction and recovered credit applications during the development of its Red Flag solution suite. Section 315 and Section 114(B) of the FACT Act mandate financial institutions manage and reduce the risk of identity theft fraud for customers and require compliance with these Red Flag regulations by Nov. 1, 2008. Credit applications are commonly declined due to an address mismatch or other red flags highlighted in the upcoming Red Flag regulations. In addition to mitigating the risk for fraud and identity theft, clearing these flags and recovering the application results in a significantly higher number of approved applications. During the process of establishing best practices and evaluating return-on-investment (ROI) metrics for its Red Flag solution suite, Zoot uncovered the following statistics from top financial institutions: • 20 percent of approved credit card applications, based on industry averages, contain an address mismatch that must be handled before granting credit; • $567,000 in revenue can be recovered from a pool of 100,000 prescreen applications (assuming a 30 percent acceptance rate); • 22.5 percent increase in revenue provided by recovering applications; • 9,450 percent return on investment for implementing an automated solution (based on 6,000 recovered applications from a pool of 100,000); • $54,000 of savings per 100,000 applications were realized through automated review for consumer initiated applications; • 50 percent reduction in fraud losses from that same application pool is a savings of $2 million. "Aside from meeting governmental regulations, financial institutions have a lot to gain through compliance with Red Flag rules," stated Dennis Dixon, president of Zoot Enterprises. "The ability to automate applications that normally require manual review decreases the cost per booked account. By reducing fraud losses and clearing address mismatch applications a significant return on investment can be achieved." For more information, visit www.zootweb.com.
