The Phone Verification report provides valuable fraud insights about an end user by retrieving data associated with their unique phone number from network operators' records.

The overall report result will be clear if the active phone number breakdown is clear AND the risk score breakdown is clear. This indicates the applicant is low risk.

The overall report result will be consider in all other cases. This indicates the applicant is a suspicious or high risk user.
