GSM Bypass Fraud
Bypass fraud is proving to be one of the most fertile and costly frauds in today’s mobile industry making mobile operators and telecom regulators face a staggering annual revenue losses due to these fixed/VoIP to GSM/CDMA/Fixed line gateway equipments, which are used to terminate international inbound calls to local subscribers by deviating traffic away from the legal interconnect gateways.
Bypass fraud is more prevalent in the countries where the cost of terminating international call exceeds the cost of a national call by a considerable margin or the countries where international gateways are monopolized by government carriers. Fraudsters (individuals or organisation), through the use of different Bypass mechanisms, sell capacity to terminate calls cheaply in these countries, on the open market or through direct connections with interconnect operators.
