“During August, Beeline’s anti-fraud system made it possible to protect more than 23 thousand subscribers from the influence of telephone scammers. The longest “attack” in August lasted about nine minutes. During this time, the fraudster tried to call the client 1414 times, but all attempts were unsuccessful “, the company said.
Beeline experts noted that the number of complaints about calls from fake numbers has decreased by 26% since the beginning of the year. However, scammers are switching to using instant messengers and cloud services to commit criminal acts. The company has focused on finding ways to combat new forms of fraud and plans to continue efforts in this direction.
