Police arrests six men involved in telecom fraud

Police have arrested six people on suspicion of defrauding telecom companies by intercepting  international calls and diverting them, something the Uganda Communications Commission Commission (UCC) calls sim card boxing.

UCC’s Head of Legal Services Abdu Waiswa says the perpetrators connive with their accomplices in the countries where the calls originate, to beat the system.

It is however not clear how much revenue the telecom companies and government have lost.
