Fujitsu touts phone fraud detector

Kyodo

Fujitsu Ltd. and Nagoya University have jointly developed technology to automatically detect telephone billing fraud by using voice analysis.

The parners said they will start testing the technology with the National Police Agency and Bank of Nagoya later this month in a joint bid to protect people from swindlers who impersonate relatives in urgent need of money over the phone and fast-talk them into transferring cash from a bank.

During testing, unusual conversations including those typically heard in "furikome sagi" remittance frauds were identified with more than 90 percent accuracy, they said.

Fujitsu also said it is further developing the technology to prevent people, including the elderly, from becoming victims of the fraud by notifying kin or others when a possible fraud is detected.
