Retailers and other businesses lose an average of $1.82 billion annually to callback fraud, according to the Communications Fraud Control Association. A newly released iconectiv use case describes how one major retailer that lost $400,000 in a single callback fraud incident, opted to address the issue by banning all callbacks to the country where the fraud originated before realizing that there were other, more customer-first options available. The use case explains how the retailer trialed iconectiv® TruNumber Protect, which features a comprehensive, continually updated database of high-risk and unallocated telephone number ranges worldwide, that enables retailers to assess situations as they come and protect themselves from fraud.
