Colin Yates is an authority on international telecoms fraud. He pioneered the practice of fraud management first in his home country of New Zealand, then worked with telcos worldwide by contributing to law enforcement bodies and fraud associations whilst leading the anti-fraud and police liaison function of Vodafone Group. Colin shares his insights into the changing patterns of international revenue share fraud, why police forces do not pursue telecoms fraudsters more often, and the accuracy of estimates of fraud losses. Colin also explains why he has been sharing his fraud intelligence with Europol, free of charge.
Regular hosts Eric and Lee also chat about the problems created by the aggressive sales tactics of some RAFM vendors, the lack of innovation in revenue assurance relative to fraud management, and the beginnings of a telecoms cold war between the USA and China.
