Telephone fraud, otherwise known as ‘Dial-in Fraud’ is now the largest source of fraud in the UK, being four times greater than credit card fraud and costing businesses over £1.5billion a year.
Many people today are able to relate to an experience of opening a phone bill that causes a sharp intake of breath. But what if it was not just a couple of hundred pounds? What if it was thousands? Unfortunately, many companies never know they have been hacked until the bill arrives.
Criminals can now hack into even the most advanced business telephone systems and use their lines to ring premium rate phone numbers set up abroad, leaving businesses liable for the charges. The technology used is getting smarter by the day as the hackers find new, inventive methods to bypass call monitoring software.
Telephones are the lifeline of most businesses but, without the correct precautions in place, they could also be the biggest overlooked risk. Without the necessary protection, businesses are leaving themselves vulnerable to fraudsters capable of running up phone bills worth thousands of pounds.
