Christmas phone fraud warning image

All too often businesses become the victims of dial-though fraud because management and staff alike use simple PINs to gain access to their voicemails.

Four 0s or 1-2-3-4 are very common as they are easy to remember as are patterns like 1-3-7-9. Some people even use their extension numbers.

These weak PINs make a phone hacker’s job very easy and before you know it, your business could become one of their latest victims and you’ll be facing a bill for hundreds or thousands of pounds, so please heed this Christmas warning that is relevant throughout the year.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
