RAG TV S3E16: A Deep Dive into Wangiri Fraud

Wednesday, April 21, 1:00pm - 2:00pm (BST)

Wangiri is the most common automated phone scam in the world because it is the simplest - unwary phone users receive a short call that ends before they can pick it up, luring them into calling back an expensive destination. Most of the public information about the scale of wangiri is anecdotal or piecemeal, reliant on consumer complaints or depending on occasional statistics shared by the few telcos willing to talk publicly about what they do to protect customers. Other telcos claim they receive no wangiri calls. In this special episode we will examine data contributed by 80 telcos plus many other sources of fraud intelligence to obtain the first truly global picture of how bad wangiri is, and who is most affected.

Why do some telcos admit to blocking millions of wangiri calls each month, when others say they never receive any? Which number ranges are most abused by fraudsters? Which are the most common pairings of countries for the apparent source and destination of wangiri calls? How often are wangiri calls originated using a phone number which has not even been allocated? Which countries receive most wangiri calls per capita? Tony Sani, creator of the RAG Wangiri Blockchain, answers these questions and more from the live audience.
