Has your legal team ever needed to verify a subject’s story or lifestyle? SMI Aware can help you!
Fraud is defined as a wrongful act of deception intended to result in personal gain. Legal counsel turns to social media information to verify the eligibility of the lawsuit’s participants. Fraud can include a subject claiming negligence, company discrimination, injury, compensation, wrongful termination, and product liability.
Evidence that supports that the claim is potentially fraudulent may include the subject’s overall lifestyle, physical and social activities, etc.
How SMI Aware Identifies Subject Fraud
Clients may provide a subject that has made a specific claim against a company. SMI Aware uses a variety of identifiers to locate subjects’ profiles, confirm them, and analyze their content to support if their claim is justifiable or not. For example, a subject may claim that a medical device is working ineffectively and causing further health concerns or risks. SMI Aware will gather photos, posts, comments, and associate groups to see if there is any evidence supporting the claim. Evidence that supports that the claim is potentially fraudulent may include the subject’s overall lifestyle, physical and social activities, etc. We will also compare the information we locate with the information provided to the client.
In today’s society, it is becoming more common for individuals to post their daily activities and everything in between. SMI Aware can analyze posts and discussions to collect any scope-related content. Many of these categories can help build a legal case for the client. SMI Aware can also support clients by identifying any criminal records.
The Outcome of Identifying Fraud
Identifying fraud can spare unnecessary legal expenses and time spent on a case. Additionally, it can reduce the burden of settling the lawsuit. Another benefit is that identifying fraud can provide solid evidence invalidating the subject’s claim.
