Explanation:
Sorry - not sure of the term in French

Teeing in or clip-on fraud attacks the residential customer. It involves making a connection through the junction box in the street and tampering with the operator's network. Fraudsters use features such as call diversion and three way calling to sell calls to international destinations at less than the price charged by the operator. Subscription fraud involves signing up to a phone service--business, domestic or mobile--but using a fictitious name and false identification. When the bill arrives the perpetrator disappears.
