Several years ago, the concept of eZverifi was conceived from a tragic news report that “Grandparents, had vanished after traveling across the state to buy a dream car from a Craigslist Ad.” “Their bodies were later found, after being robbed and killed.”
Criminals know why individuals are vulnerable on the internet. Because there isn’t a process for individuals to validate or verify the identity of those that conduct business. Online consumer marketplace sites, dating, freelancing sites, and any peer-to-peer platform are easy targets. These markets consist of millions of consumers and small business owners that leverage platforms like Craigslist, Offer-Up, eHarmony, Fiverr, etc., every day. Each of these sites are experiencing an increased risk every day.
