Telephony fraud refers to various types of fraudulent activities that are carried out using telephone systems. Some of the growing risks of telephony fraud include:
Caller ID spoofing: Fraudsters can manipulate caller ID information to make it appear as though a call is coming from a legitimate source, such as a bank or government agency.
Voicemail fraud: Fraudsters can gain access to an individual’s voicemail by guessing or resetting their voicemail passcode. Once they have access, they can use the voicemail to gather personal information or commit other types of fraud.
Vishing: This is a form of social engineering in which fraudsters use phone calls or voice messages to trick individuals into divulging personal information.
Toll fraud: Fraudsters can exploit weaknesses in a company’s phone system to make long-distance calls at the company’s expense.
SIM swapping: This is a type of fraud in which a fraudster is able to convince a mobile phone provider to transfer a victim’s phone number to a SIM card that the fraudster controls. Once the fraudster has control of the phone number, they can use it to reset account passwords and gain access to the victim’s accounts.
Robo-calling: automatic dialers are making it easy for fraudsters to make a high volume of calls to random numbers, in order to reach someone that might fall for the scam.
