At the recent FCS Fraud Forum we had a presentation from one of our members, Mobicode who currently work closely with high street traders, the police and insurers in helping to identify and prevent resale of stolen mobile handsets.
We discussed how their current database could be used to the benefit of members to share information about telecoms fraud and are looking longer term for a data-sharing agreement with Action Fraud.
In the shorter term, however, it was agreed that interested CPs could work with Mobicode to input information about phone fraud to the database and identify ways of sharing and alerting others to scams as they happen.
If you are interested in joining the group, please let me know by 19 May. I anticipate that we can run meetings by conference call after, perhaps, an initial face to face.
I look forward to hearing from you.
