(fraude de la) clonación
Explanation:
Hello, check this from link 1: "La clonación de celulares es un fraude que se logra a través de equipos especiales de alta tecnología...(para el cual) se requiere la modificación del serial electrónico del teléfono y su programación, de tal modo que se identifique con la línea usurpada". And second link dixit: "Teeing-in or Clip-on Fraud": The physical connection of calling apparatus to another's service to make unauthorised calls". And more importantly: "Clip-on fraud: This requires the connection of a second telephone to a customer's line between the customer's premises and the exchange. This telephone can be a cordless base station, allowing calls to be made from a car parked nearby. Typically, this is perpetrated outside office hours and the equipment removed before the office opens. If the victim has conference calling facilities, the fraudster can set up calls and transfer these to pre-arranged customers. Once a call has been set up, the cordless phone is free to set up another call. The fraudster's bandwidth is only limited by the number of outgoing trunks the business has in use".

robo de línea, conexión fraudulenta


Explanation:
En este link tienes la explicación del término.
Honestamente, desconozco el término formal en español. Informal, es "colgarse" de la línea, "ponerle el gancho", etc.; tal vez debas usar una pequeña explicación.

Suerte y saludos,

Patricia

En Venezuela se utiliza ese témino para realizar llamada pinchando las lineas en las caseta de teléfonos donde llegan los pares telefónicos de los usuarios cercanos. Esto es similar a "bridging" pero utiliza un ca especie de clip manual. Espero sea de alguna ayuda.
