Ideal Scenarios


  • 58% of hiring managers have caught lies on job applications. False places, dates and titles of employment, schools attended, degrees achieved, licenses held and certifications earned are just some of the areas where job applicants will mislead others on their résumé. 40% of pre-employment screenings return at least one serious flag. These imposters waste a hiring company's time and money hoping their misdeeds won’t be discovered.

    Job seekers can consent and authorize to the verification of their employment, education, professional licenses and certifications for the purpose of identity verification and fraud prevention. Low cost, multi-step verifications make job seekers more desirable and save potential hirers excessive onboarding costs. Authenticating.com can enable consumers to certify their experience and prove themselves to others wherever they wish. 


  • Only 44% of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) landlords conduct sex offender checks and only 51% of DIY landlords conduct criminal background checks because until now, it has been too cost prohibitive.

    This service could allow would-be renters to quickly prove their identity and verify themselves as a fraud prevention measure to pre-qualify as a potential renter. Pre-checking prospects before incuring the cost of a full tenant screening offers a level of fraud deterance and social responsibility that any sensible owner, property manager and community member would desire.


  • According to the FBI, romance scams and confidence fraud are the second largest source of cybercrime in the US. Most social discovery apps rely on Facebook as its sole authenticator, but according to Facebook's own estimates more than 10% of their 2 billion users (200 million accounts) are fake.

    Authenticating.com offers a common sense solution to online misrepresentation and social deception. By requiring users to privately and anonymously prove their photos, age and identity, and proactively denying verifications or access to sex offenders and other criminals, communities and social networks can provide a greater sense of trust in the connections their users make their products and services.


  • Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules require sellers, buyers, traders, brokers and exchanges of digital assets to prove the identity of account holders, check Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), sanctions, watch, enforcement, cross border courts and adverse media lists and source the funds being used in a financial transaction. In the US alone, non-payment or non-delivery of goods or services is the third largest source of cybercrime based on reports made to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center.  

    Authenticating.com gives exchanges, businesses and consumers tools of trust so they can have confidence in who they do commerce with. Low-cost self-verifications enhance safety and security in buying and selling anything online.


  • Authenticating.com can be used to verify individuals belong to the groups they say they do. Businesses, organizations and institutions will often give preferential access, treatment or benefits to employees, students, alumni, active duty military and their families, veterans, teachers, first responders, healthcare providers and other professionals. Fraudsters will often do whatever they can to gain access or claim a benefit that they are not entitled to.

    With direct connections to the authoritative databases Authenticating.com can instantly verify a person deserves the access or benefits they say they are entitled to. By requiring a person to prove their identity before providing credentialed access or benefits, businesses, organizations and institutions can eliminate discount fraud and abuse for good.
