South African Fraud Prevention Services (SAFPS)

The Southern African Fraud Prevention Service (SAFPS) is a proudly South African non profit company committed to combating fraud across the financial services industry by providing a shared database to member organisations as well as offering the South African public a means of protecting themselves against impersonation and identity theft. 

From an initial membership of only two banks, the SAFPS now provides fraud related data to some 65 trusted brands in the South African economy.

  • We offer our members unparalleled commercial reference in fraud prevention.
  • Through our additional free protective registration service, we aim to assist in preventing members of the public from becoming victims of impersonation.

SAFPS aims to combat crime in South Africa through harnessing the power of the participation of major financial and retail organisations. 

Since the company's inception in 2001, the SAFPS member group of organisations has successfully prevented in excess of R8 billion in attempted fraud. In addition, over the past 15 years these businesses have contributed more than 100000 confirmed fraud incidents listed onto the SAFPS. In 2015 alone, SAFPS members reported savings of over R1 billion, as a result of fraud prevented through the sharing of SAFPS data. What’s more, the volume of data provided to SAFPS members via the SAFPS system is continually growing, as stakeholders actively report and file cases of confirmed fraud onto the database.
