Who's pretending to be you?
And how much are they stealing from your bank account?
Criminals steal $10 billion a year from banks and other companies, just by pretending to be someone they aren't.
The typical defense against these phone fraudsters? Ask them questions such as, "What is your mother's maiden name?"
But the answers to such questions can be obtained too easily — which is why telephone crime has grown exponentially in recent years.
Pindrop Security, a start-up out of Georgia Tech that received early support from GRA, is marketing technology that detects the "acoustical fingerprint" of every phone call.
Pindrop's solution is saving banks and companies millions of dollars, and the company is one of the fastest-growing in Georgia.
