Would you tell me if there is any difference between result and outcome in the context below?

We'll open a fraud check ticket to verify that the phone number belongs to you. About the result/outcome of it you'll be notified through a text or call.

Leaving aside word choice, does the sentences sound natural?

  • I'm not sure we can talk about the difference between those two words whilst "leaving aside word-choice." The first sentence needs a hyphen in fraud-check. Perhaps It could all be written more straightforwardly in one sentence: ....belongs to you and will call or text you (about) the result. Aug 3 at 23:20

The word order of the second sentence sounds weird. I’d say “You’ll be notified of the result/outcome by text or phone call”. Result or outcome are equally ok. I’m a native British speaker of English.
