According to online statistics published by the International Forum of Irregular Network Access, phone companies estimate that organised telecommunications fraud is costing business owners £41.8 billion per year.
Toll Fraud is on the rise – Don’t become part of the statistics!
Most fraud happens at the weekend, often just after companies shut down. Say, for instance you close for business at 5pm, a hacker could break into your voicemail at 5:01pm and generate 20 ten minute calls to £5 per minute premium rate numbers. You would not know about this until you next open for business. By this time 200 minutes have racked up.
The cost of this is type of hack is frightening. In this scenario if only a single port is hacked you would be liable for £1000. If 20 ports got hacked your liability would be £20,000
