Artificially Inflated Traffic (AIT) is a type of SMS fraud that happens when fraudsters generate high volumes of fake traffic via mobile applications or websites. 


A common AIT scenario looks something like this:  

  1. A fraudster designs a bot to create fake accounts.  
  2. The bot triggers a one-time passcode (OTP) SMS to mobile numbers. 
  3. The fraudster partners with a rogue party to intercept the inflated traffic without actually delivering messages to the end user. 
  4. Together, they claim the revenue, share the profits... 
  5. … and repeat the process to inflate revenues further or tamper with conversion statistics.
