Reston, VA, March 16, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Using video to fight online fraud.
BCAST Labs out of Reston, Virginia has introduced a new product called VideoValidate (“Vv”) that uses video and location services to help in the fight against fraudsters on the net. It's actually very simple and it takes about 30 seconds to initiate a Vv request. If you are interacting or considering interacting with an unknown individual you send them a VideoValidate or “Vv” request by text or email. When they receive the Vv request, they are prompted to reply with a brief video of themselves that is deleted upon viewing. In addition, the respondents general location is identified (only city and state).
The beauty of what BCAST has created here is that not only is it free to use, but there is no app to download or registration required and everything is managed within the request on the browser (both mobile and web), including accessing cameras and location. Targeted market is online daters, craigslist, eBay users, etc. So next time you get an email from someone in Nigeria telling you they have ten million dollars or the guy you are talking to on Match.com has a 20 year old photo up, send them a VideoValidate request and see what happens.
