Indiana’s top prosecutor is showing the public how telcos facilitate bad traffic by allowing crooks to hide behind a series of fronts.
Indians suffer many scam calls but TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela wants to leverage data obtained when users register a new SIM.
Simcash tells users their phone will relay one time passwords and similar A2P messages but consumer reviews suggest that is false.
Like other countries, the UK is taking an Australian-style approach to nuisance calls in preference to the faltering strategy of the USA.
We need groups like the Global Solutions Council to seek a working consensus on how to make international phone calls safe.
The YouMail Robocall Index counted 5.5 billion robocalls in October, enough for every American to receive 16 unwanted calls each.
There is no point in adding signatures to calls unless you also plan to use them to drive bad actors out of the telecoms ecosystem.
Do not be surprised if customers start abandoning the use of phone numbers to exclusively rely on OTT voice services instead.
You can fire Americans, hire replacements somewhere cheaper, and disguise where they are, but eventually somebody pays a price.
Do we want real solutions to the problem of spoofed robocalls? Or do we want sales propaganda followed by excuses for failure?
