Last Week to Respond to i3forum-RAG Survey on International Wholesale Fraud

It is pleasing to see how many have already taken part in the new survey of international wholesale fraud from the i3forum and Risk & Assurance Group (RAG) but more data is always better than less data. Our industry needs good unbiased measures relating to fraud and its mitigations or government and regulatory policies towards fraud will continue to be dominated by lobbyists who put the interests of vendors ahead of the needs of both telcos and the public. Most of the questions in the survey are multiple choice and it takes just 10 minutes to complete them all. If you manage fraud on behalf of international carrier then please submit your answers before the end of July 6. You can answer anonymously though there is also an option to leave an email address if you want to receive a summary of the results. The questionnaire can be seen below or at this webpage.
