Advanced Fraud Solutions (AFS) is a leading provider of deposit fraud detection software.
In 2007, a group of regional financial institutions in North Carolina, seeking a way to alert one another of counterfeit checks, established the premise of Advanced Fraud Solutions — a database built by contributing banks and credit unions, working together to fight fraud. Today, Advanced Fraud Solutions features the industry’s largest check fraud database, and hosts industry leading check, card and ACH fraud prevention solutions.
