Fraud is surging back in contact centers. In 2022 as the pandemic era government payouts dried up and economic uncertainty took hold, fraudsters started to return to their familiar hunting grounds; socially engineering contact center agents. Only this time they are armed with people’s personal data acquired from dark web data breaches and smishing attempts.
