LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Callcredit Software, Analytics & Fraud Division are delighted to announce their latest product development resulting from a strategic relationship with Royal Mail. Callcredit have developed a real time anti-fraud solution using Royal Mail's National Change of Address (NCOA) Alert service, a development that further cements Callcredit as the market leader for Identity and Fraud Solutions.
