As a telecoms company you can improve the quality of your fraud prevention with Biaas FNRM™, which is a powerful database that uses real time information to battle International Revenue Sharing Fraud (ISRF). Best used at the Network level, it makes the fraudsters go elsewhere.
The GCFA Global fraud loss survey for 2017 estimated that losses totalling $6.1 billion were the result of of IRSF. The good news is that this type of loss to telecommunications operators is easily preventable with Biaas tools that can be implemented into the FMS or Network.
By targeting numbers that generate revenue for the fraudster, Biaas has developed tools that disrupt IRSF on 4 levels:
Unallocated and Unassigned Destinations
Operators can now eliminate frauds to unallocated and unassigned destinations. Through configuring FMS and Network blocking with FNRM™, operators can prevent IRSF fraud that channels calls to unallocated ranges in expensive country destinations (as well as higher cost numbers in non-expensive countries). Using FNRM™ within routing to block just a few thousand unallocated number ranges will prevent 12 Billion unused telephone numbers from being used for IRSF. Biaas continually researches and updates its list of unallocated Destinations to enable clients to act fast and be effective against IRSF. The vast majority of successful IRSF is to unallocated and unassigned destinations.
Invalid Digit String lengths
Configuration of FMS and Network alerts, through the use of Biaas FNRM™, can Identify destinations with incorrect digit string lengths that are regularly routed to in the process of IRSF frauds. Biaas has a track record of keeping one step ahead of the fraudsters to inform clients of what digit string lengths should be.
Higher Cost International Destinations
Fraudsters love Higher Cost Destinations. By utilising FNRM™ an FMS can discover the higher cost destinations that are often targeted in IRSF frauds. Through the maintenance of comprehensive lists and constant updates, Biaas can help to inform telecommunications operators and make these numbers more visible, decreasing the threat of IRSF.
IRSF Test Numbers
There are hundreds of new IRSF test numbers published every day. FNRM™ is a tool that enables FMS to identify the IRSF test numbers that are frequently used by fraudsters. Biaas tools help the operator to identify test numbers and take preventative action before fraud can occur.
