During the past 24 hours, we have noticed a high number of fraudulent attempts to Voip Accounts on EveryDay VoIP’s network. We are doing our best to keep your accounts safe, however, we are requesting for you to do your part as well.
Toll Fraud begins with a fraudster gaining unauthorised access to your telephone system. Once connected these hackers use their access to make calls on your services, usually to high-cost international destinations, at your expense.
Toll Fraud hackers are motivated by financial gain and there are several ways a profit can be generated through unauthorised use of your phone system:
- Premium Rate Numbers – these are similar to 0844/0871 numbers in the United Kingdom which charge the caller a fixed rate per minute such as adult chat lines, technical support and horoscopes. In the case of Toll Fraud, the destinations called are usually international and exist purely for generating profit through compromised phone systems. The hacker makes calls to their own premium rate numbers using your VoIP service, you pay for them and they pocket the profit.
