New technology will help fight spam calls, CRTC says

The Canadian federal telecommunications regulator (CRTC) says new technology will help reduce the frequency and impact of caller ID spoofing.

Spoofing happens when a caller hides their identity by displaying fake or altered phone numbers on a call display when making a call.

It can be used by fraudsters looking to fool unsuspecting victims into believing that they are receiving a legitimate telephone call from the government or their bank.

The CRTC says that as of Wednesday, telecommunications service providers will certify whether a caller’s identity can be trusted by verifying the caller ID information for internet protocol-based voice calls.

It adds that as service providers upgrade their networks and offer compatible phones to their customers, more Canadians will be able to see the effects of the new technology.

Global’s Anne Gaviola has the story.
