Consumers in the USA and Australia agree with those in the UK that contact centres should use new technology to shield payment card data from call centre agents & call recordings to stop fraud. 

Syntec's latest annual consumer survey has been expanded to include the USA and Australia, revealing that consumer concern about fraud in call centres is a global phenomenon. 

Indeed, 4 out of 5 consumers across all three continents agree that: "As a general rule, I don't think organisations should be allowed to keep my payment card details in their databases" (74% of UK, 78% US and 80% Australian consumers)
