Did you know that dial-thru telephony fraud is becoming as big as credit card fraud? The number of cases is rising and is now beginning to gather international attention, as recently reported on by BBC News & other national & international news agencies. We are aware of multiple cases where a business has come back into the office on a Monday morning only to find their telephony system has been hacked and used to make expensive international calls. In some cases racking up charges to the sum of £50,000 or more in the course of one weekend is not uncommon!
Here at Overline we’re now fully prepared to assure that these very real threats to our customer’s communications systems and potential massive costs are completely protected against.
Our telephony services are now set up with a unique in-built fraud protection system that could save your business tens of thousands of pounds.
Specifically we will:
Automatically cut off spends on any phone number of over £500
If your phone line(s) spends more than £500 in 24 hours on traffic which is not UK geographic or UK mobile we will cut it off automatically. Don’t worry; we can easily turn it on again.
No Surprise Charges for you:
No matter how big a bill a fraudster can run up, we will not charge you for any of the cost, your service will be 100% insured against this type of fraudulent activity.
This service is just 0.75 pence per line, per month:
It is an opt-out offering, and if you don’t want to take the fraud protection, you don’t have to but you do run the risk of being targeted by fraudsters and will be liable for any and all charges should this occur in the future.
(The Anti-Fraud Protection product covers calls via our preferred network supplier. If you dial 1280 or any other pre-fix number prior to dialling out, this will route your calls onto another network. The Anti-Fraud Product would not be operational during that period, therefore should any suspicious/fraudulent calls be made within that time frame you will not be covered, and will be liable for all call charges)
