Syniverse recently produced a report, “Understanding the Global Threat of Mobile Fraud,” that represents our first study to provide one complete year of firsthand data on roaming fraud, and our first step in what will be an increasingly critical area of mobile that we’re focusing on. As one of our next steps with this, I took some time to share some insights we gained from this report and specifically how they relate to international revenue share fraud. I invite you to check out these viewpoints in the video below.
International revenue share fraud represents a severe threat to the global mobile industry and was estimated to have cost almost $11 billion in 2015, according to the most recent study by the Communications Fraud Control Association. In providing fraud detection services to over 130 operators around the world, we at Syniverse look forward to sharing our lessons to help us better protect our industry against this fraud.
