HIGH RISK TELECOMS FRAUD WARNING!

3rd August 2016

Suspected telecoms fraudsters are now illegally using valid company details and bank details, allowing them to pass teleco provider's credit checks and gain access to business telephone lines.

On most recent occasions, the email address of the suspected fraudster has had the domain 'yandex.com', which is operated by a Russian Internet Company.

From experience, the caller will request inbound numbers (normally UK geographic) be delivered to international numbers and also demand portal access, including requests for SIP and VoIP services.

Once the user gains access to the number management or gains international access, thousands of calls are made resulting in a significant cost, which in some cases have been reported to be  in excess of £20,000 in a single night on a single number!
