Raising Fraud Awareness: Wangiri 2.0 Threat Explained in an Interview with Black Swan Telecom Journal

At LANCK Telecom, we strongly advocate for close cooperation between carriers when it comes to fraud detection. If we spot suspicious activity while monitoring traffic, we always alert our partners about a potential threat. This is our philosophy.

It is no secret that prompt fraud detection is a must-have for every carrier aiming at preventing financial & reputational losses caused by fraud attacks. That is why we provide basic “alerting only” version of our FMS platform for free, so that any carrier, big or small, could immediately see if there’s a fraud problem with their traffic.

We constantly develop and improve the platform, adding new features and responding to the feedback provided by our clients. Recently it helped us discover a new type of fraud – we called it Wangiri 2.0. You can learn more about it in this article.

Our commitment and raising awareness among carriers & businesses paid off as recently a reputable online telecom journal Black Swan decided to do an interview with our COO – Sergey Okhrimenko, where they discussed the Wangiri 2.0 threat, its detection peculiarities and potential consequences, for both businesses and carriers. You can read the full interview on the Black Swan website here.

We are glad that our efforts in the war against fraud are recognized, and we will continue to increase awareness among the telecom community and report on emerging threats further on.
