Protect Your Customers from One-Ring Scams: Trusted Tools to Fight Fraud

Each year, communications service providers (CSPs) worldwide lose over US$39 billion to fraud such as illegal robocalls, SMS phishing (“smishing”) and “wangiri” callback schemes, according to the Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA) and analyst firms. To help service providers block suspicious calls on their networks and crack down on illegal robocalls and callback fraud, simple, seamless and secure solutions are available and being deployed.

During the panel session, “Protect Your Customers from One-Ring Scams: Trusted Tools to Fight Fraud,” iconectiv telecom fraud expert David Estes discussed how CSPs are upgrading their existing call-blocking analytics to identify calls from high-risk and unallocated number ranges and suspicious premium-rate numbers.

The virtual panel session took place on April 22, 2022 at 2:15 PM SAST.
