AntiPort - Educating the Public on the risks and prevention of Mobile Number Porting Scams

Project: Research

Project Details


Almost all mobile phone users - of all ages - are vulnerable to theft and financial fraud arising from mobile phone porting. This project will develop a website, a mobile phone application and an educational video to limit losses to consumers, to help protect their identities, and retain control of their bank accounts and other financial assets. Consumers will be educated about identity theft and mobile phone porting scams, the steps to minimise risks, and if they do fall victim, how to recover quickly by limiting the time and money lost in the fallout. A significant communication campaign as well as partnership with a major telecommunication provider will help to maximise the reach of the initiative.
