What to look for?

  • Large call volumes at night, weekends or public holidays
  • IDD calls to destinations you usually don’t dial
  • An unusually high number of short duration calls
  • Difficulties (busy or delays) with retrieving voicemail messages

What action can be taken to reduce the risk of fraud?

Change default codes and passwords immediately once a service is activated

Don’t choose obvious passwords (i.e. company name, 1234)

Educate your staff on the importance of keeping codes and passwords confidential.
