What is toll fraud?

Toll fraud occurs when unauthorized users gain remote access to a company’s telephone system for making long distance toll calls. In most serious cases, hackers capture long distance lines and then “resell” long distance service at a significant expense to the company. Domestic and international toll fraud is estimated to cost U.S. companies $1.2 billion a year.
