Stopping Robocalls sometimes Challenging but Achievable for Leading Solutions
Seattle, WA (PRUnderground) July 11th, 2018
Accordingly to YouMail, over 4 billion robocalls were placed in June 2018, with over 300 million of them reaching a called party. While leading robocall detection and unwanted call management solutions often stop calls before they even ring a phone, many unfortunately still get through. This has led to more than 4.5 million robocall complaints in 2017, up from 3.4 million the prior year.
Robocallers use technology tricks to gain the trust of the consumer such as local number spoofing, which is a technique that involves manipulating the calling party’s number to appear different than the actual number.
Mind Commerce research indicates that many would-be robocallers attempt to use invalid or unallocated phone numbers. This allows robocall detection solutions that leverage data obtained from certain official industry telephone number administrative databases to stop these call types.
The Mind Commerce study has also found that so-called neighborhood number spoofing (spoofing in which a phone number is altered so that it looks like someone in the local area is calling) is harder to detect, but not impossible. Advanced analytics and artificial intelligence may be utilized to determine if a call is a valid caller or a temporarily “high-jacked” telephone number.
