Roaming fraud is big business. It's global. It's organized. It's sophisticated and can happen at any time, any where and have a devastating effect on your business. Annual fraud roaming losses in the Telecommunications industry are estimated to be $7 Billion worldwide.
Professional fraudsters have turned their attention to mobile wireless roaming because it is so easy to set up premium rate services with an operator. Fraudsters have easy access to resources needed to set up a network of different accounts and services. They set up these accounts and services with the aim of using them until they are blocked. Alternatively, they can establish and operate a network of telecom services with the sole purpose of utilizing the entire telecom billing infrastructure to drain mobile operators of their profits.
