The Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA)* …defines it as the use of telecommunications products or services without intention to pay. Committing communications fraud is serious business, and to borrow a phrase from a major motion picture, “business is a-booming.”** The CFCA’s most recent figures indicate that communications fraud represents an $18.4 billion risk.
