Toll Fraud: How to protect your business

WTC News

WTC is warning its business customers to be on the lookout for unusual activity on their business phone lines, as the occurrence of illegal toll fraud is on the rise.

Toll fraud occurs when hackers are able to access your phone system, and invisibly use your phone lines to make long distance calls, usually to international destinations. Often, the first time the illegal activity is noticed is when you receive a whopping long distance bill at the end of the month.
