Looking at the problem from theBell System point of view, toll fraudcan be divided into three separatecategories: 1) fraudulent use ofelectronic devices to illegally enterthe telephone network, 2) fraudu-lent use of telephone credit cards,3) fraudulent use of third-numberbilling. Bell System losses from creditcard and third number cheatsamounted to $22.5 million in 1971while losses incurred from elec-tronic fraud are almost impossibleto estimate with any degree of ac-curacy. A closer look at each type oftoll fraud may show that each mustbe dealt with as a separate problemwith different solution
