The Problem:

Business Phone Numbers are “Hijacked”

Without their knowledge or consent, Toll-Free numbers are being hijacked and text-enabled, harming both businesses and consumers.

Background

Somos Study Makes Shocking Discovery

More and more businesses are text-enabling their toll-free numbers. Over 80 percent of Americans text regularly; some 6 billion texts are sent every day. Toll-Free numbers can easily be text-enabled without the business owner’s consent or knowledge.

Somos and QSI Consulting, Inc. conducted a study only to discover how easily incoming texts could be ‘hijacked’ from the business owner to an unauthorized party.
