COCC Partners with Advanced Fraud Solutions

Dedicated to the security and safety of our institutions, COCC partners with Advanced Fraud Solutions to help provide clients with proactive tools to stop fraud in its tracks.

SOUTHINGTON, Conn.  – As COCC seeks innovative and collaborative methods to assist in offering leading technology to financial institutions, we are proud to announce our partnership with Advanced Fraud Solutions (AFS). AFS is one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., according to Inc. 5000, and works with financial institutions of all sizes to mitigate check fraud through their product TrueChecks®. TrueChecks® is the industry’s leading check fraud detection software that analyzes account-level historical data from thousands of contributing financial institutions to interdict fraudulent deposits before they affect your institution.

“COCC is thrilled to be collaborating with AFS in providing top tier check fraud prevention solutions to our clients while keeping their customers’ financial security a top priority,” said Karen Porter, Assistant Vice President of Item Processing for COCC. While the traditional landscape for banking continues to evolve so does the increasing level of fraud that surrounds our clients. These threats, new and old, continue to develop while targeting financial institutions. Despite the diminishing number of checks being produced, the majority of institutions have reported steady or increased rates of check fraud. COCC chose to partner with AFS due to their strong client focus, collaborative approach, and commitment to outstanding service. AFS is dedicated to fighting fraud by offering proactive fraud mitigation solutions to banks and credit unions of any size. AFS hosts the industry’s largest check fraud database through its cooperative approach to fraud prevention and data contribution. AFS solutions have been trusted by banks and credit unions to fight fraud nationwide for over 14 years.

“We are proud to partner with COCC to offer a comprehensive solution to our mutual clients to fight the battle against check fraud,” said Jordan Bothwell, VP, Strategic Partnerships at AFS. “Together we will mitigate fraudsters’ attempts to keep check fraud relevant and provide a strong defense against fraudulent activities that undermine the security of the financial industry.”
