Fraud Score Details

The Fraud Score Details page allows you to determine any possible fraud or account discrepancies based on the matching of account details.

Affiliate Fraud Score

Fraud check allows you to determine a potential fraudulent affiliate using the LinkTrust Affiliate Fraud Scoring System. When a new affiliate signs up, the affiliate is entered into the LinkTrust system and assigned three separate non-mystical clear cut numbers. The numbers are used to determine if the new affiliate falls into one of the following categories:

  • Duplicates – The system checks all existing affiliate accounts in your Partner Center and provides the number of matches found.
  • Suspended – The system checks all the suspended affiliates across the entire LinkTrust system and provides the number of matches found.
  • Denied – The system checks all the denied affiliates across the entire LinkTrust system and provides the number of the matches found.

Rescore Button

Because the affiliate fraud score is a snapshot in time, you can get a current affiliate fraud score using the Rescore button. The following criteria are used when calculating the new affiliate fraud score:

  • IP address
  • Company Name
  • Tax ID
  • Address line 1
  • Phone
  • Email
