A study by cloud communications provider Toku found that 87% of the 1,000 Singaporeans surveyed received a scam call recently. Three-quarters of them answered the call, with 10% falling prey and suffering monetary loss.

To restore trust in phone calls, Toku – which provides 60% coverage of all virtual numbers in Singapore – has joined the AB Handshake community to proactively fight against fraudulent calls.

The growing AB Handshake global community helps to serve the ever-evolving call fraud concerns by uniting telco service providers to provide the scale needed for cross-authentic call registries.
