91% Fraudster Detection: BrightCheck Partners with Rater Dating App to Enhance Safety

Latest advancements with BrightCheck Pro helps Rater provide a safe online experience for users.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- BrightCheck is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Rater, the anti-catfishing social app dedicated to providing a safe and authentic dating experience. This collaboration brings together BrightCheck Pro's advanced AI-driven trust & safety solution with Rater's commitment to user safety and authenticity, creating a more secure environment for online daters.

Rater, launched in early 2023, addresses the pervasive issues of catfishing and romance scams that affect online dating platforms. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) claims people lost more than $10 billion to fraud in 2023, up 14% from 2022. Nicole Drew, Rater's Founder & CEO, emphasizes, "Our mission at Rater is to offer a safe and genuine space for singles to connect. Partnering with BrightCheck allows us to enhance our trust and safety measures, ensuring our members' peace of mind."

Rater's Successful Expansion and Trust Commitment

Rater has garnered significant initial traction with early testers and members who are enjoying the easy-to-navigate app design and 'Radar by Rater' IRL mixers in California. After a successful soft launch on the west coast, Rater is now ready to officially launch nationwide. As the platform expands, maintaining trust and authenticity becomes more important than ever.

Addressing Verification Challenges with AI

As Rater's user base grows, the need for sophisticated verification solutions increases. Traditional methods, such as photo ID checks, are effective but need to be part of a layered approach to address the complexities of online fraudsters. BrightCheck Pro enhances these efforts by providing real-time verification of user identities, criminal records, and fraud risk scores through its AI-powered solution. This integration helps Rater comprehensively safeguard its community against fraudsters and bad actors.

Early Results with Rater

In the initial phae of the partnership, BrightCheck Pro has significantly improved Rater's review process. During the first round of user reviews, BrightCheck Pro flagged 91% of potential criminal and fraudulent profiles. This allowed Rater's team to efficiently address trust and safety concerns, reducing the overall evaluation time by 57%.

Key Features of BrightCheck Pro

National Criminal Searches: Access to extensive databases for real-time criminal checks in the United States.

Advanced AI Fraud Detection: AI-driven risk scores identify early signs of fraud and bad actors.

Seamless Integration: The 'Real-Time API' helps platforms manage user verification and profile monitoring efficiently.

Bulk Profile Screening: Batch processing allows platforms to process large volumes of user profiles in a single upload.

Empower Users with PrePaid Checks: Platforms can pre-purchase BrightCheck's consumer checks in bulk, enabling users to run anti-catfish, social media, and criminal checks.
