Report on Fraud - Voice Has Become The Preferred Medium for Attack

Here is an interesting report on a variety of fraud issues. One thing that struck me is that voice has become the preferred channel for fraud. Voice SPAM, scams, vishing, social engineering into contact centers, etc. Voice used to be the most trusted communications medium, but now it has become the LEAST trusted. Public voice has a ton of issues - is it any wonder that users are moving to closed systems for voice and messaging???
