Telstra announced a further milestone in its “Cleaner Pipes” initiative protecting Telstra customers, blocking on average 13 million scam calls per month.
Australia’s second largest telco Optus says that in 10 years working together with global anti-phishing and online brand protection company FraudWatch they have taken down more than 3,171 phishing emails, brand abuse, fake mobile apps and fake social media sites.
Telstra has announced the third element of its "Cleaner Pipes" initiative, ensuring that its smart pipes aren't dumb, and are as clean as possible from scam callers, safeguarding "millions of Australians in the process".
Millions of scam telephone calls have been blocked in recent trial initiatives, according to telecoms industry peak body Communications Alliance, in the lead up to the newly announced introduction of a new industry code aimed at stopping scam calls.
The Federal Government has released a new industry code that it claims will stop scam calls by detecting, tracing and blocking them.
Telecommunications lobby group Communications Alliance is seeking public comment on a proposed new industry code designed to combat scam calls to consumers at risk of being defrauded.
New research on unsolicited calls in Australia shows that more than half the adults have received scam calls daily or weekly, according to the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
