Barts FraudX™
Suspicious benefit/wage crossmatch cases are identified and ranked according to our proprietary FraudX™. This model scores and ranks cases based on the likelihood of being fraudulent. The higher the FraudX™ score, the more likely a case is overpaid or contains fraud. FraudX™ allows UI agencies to dedicate investigative resources towards focusing on cases with the highest FraudX™ scores. Currently, there is no other algorithm or fraud model deployed in the UI industry that has a longer history or has detected more unemployment insurance overpayments.
