The Client

A leading North American video rental company managed 40 thousand automated kiosks throughout the United States and Canada processing over 2 million rentals per day. The company lost over $100 million annually due to fraudulent activity.

The Problem

Identify good vs fraudulent events. With volume of over 2 million rentals per day, identifying good vs fraudulent activity was not possible using their existing systems.

The Solution

We designed and developed two regression algorithms to better identify fraudulent activity in real-time.  The first algorithm focused on the established customer, and the second algorithm focused on the new customers. The output of these two algorithms quantified the likelihood of fraudulent transactions. Transaction data was integrated with multiple other data sources to create accurate quantifications.
