With the information gathered by FraudView, authorities were able to locate and apprehend the fraudster immediately.
FraudView detected and located the person behind the fraud ring using its innovative bypass fraud system. The accused man was arrested in his home by local authorities. The operator filed the complaint with the authorities after discovering a very high volume of international calls made from a single location where the suspect lived. This FraudView system currently covers thirty million subscribers and detects thousands of bypass cases daily. The fraudster was found with various types of sophisticated telecom fraud equipment in his home which were seized by authorities. Bypass fraud allows for an international call to look like a local call so that telecom operators are not able to receive long distance charges and other fees.
