Fraud Using Voip
Dealers should be aware of a new fraud using VOIP. A VoIP phone or IP Phone uses
voice over IP (VoIP) technologies for placing and transmitting telephone calls
over an IP network, such as the Internet, instead of the traditional public
switched telephone network (PSTN).
A dealer recently received a call from a subject wanting to buy silver bars. The subject then sent by express mail a check which was blatantly counterfeit. The check was also verified as fraudulent by the dealer's bank.
The call originated from a VOIP phone number from Bakersfield, CA and wanting the order sent to an address in Indiana. However, the express mail check he issued originated in Denver, CO.
