In a telecom world filled with villains, CFCA members are unveiling their identities as fraud fighting superheroes dedicated to stopping malicious actors from stealing consumers’ money and identities. These vigilant guardians have been protecting the communications infrastructure for a long time – sharing insights and best practices.

iconectiv, a provider of telecom solutions, is proud to have its own legion of trusted communications superheroes that have been an integral part of this ongoing battle. The team is led by the Fraud Fighter, whose impenetrable shield protects legitimate businesses, communication providers and consumers from being victimized. The Fraud Fighters among us can add two powerful tools to stop malicious acts before they happen, including:

  • TruNumber ProtectThis fraud fighting solution combines information from national regulators, telecom consortiums, industry associations and number administrators from around the world to quickly assist in identifying and help in blocking fraudulent calls to and from high-risk number ranges as well as unallocated and premium rate numbers. Designed as a forward-looking solution, TruNumber Protect also alerts your team about impending attacks. It helps thwarts all kinds of suspicious activity, including one-ring scams, PBX hacking fraud, international revenue share fraud (IRSF), interconnection-related revenue leakage and fraudulent roaming calls to premium-rate services.
  • PortData Validate — This tool helps protect financial assets by validating a customer’s identity before you approve a transaction or disclose information. It helps identify the current service provider associated with a telephone number and recent porting activity. The data, exclusively available from iconectiv or an authorized reseller of this service, is the U.S.’s only authorized service for businesses that need access to accurate and up-to-date phone number porting information as part of a fraud mitigation plan.

The Fraud Fighter works alongside the Identification Verifier who uses X-ray-like vision and other powerful tools to separate legitimate organizations from malicious actors by helping to stop spam calls so consumers can trust their caller ID and don’t miss critical communications from their schools, healthcare providers, banks and other businesses that provide essential services.
