What is telecoms fraud?
A lesser known fraud in the UK, telecoms fraud involves the misuse of telecommunications by fraudsters who either have no intention of paying the bill, or are looking to charge innocent people for services they did not ask for.
Telecoms fraud includes, but is not limited to:
- Text message scams
- Missed call scams
- Ringtone scams
- Phone insurance scams
- Fixed line fraud
It’s not unusual for telecoms fraud to be linked with banking fraud
