  • Patent number: 3952160
    Abstract: Apparatus for transferring coin deposit information from a coin telephone station to a telephone office, for example, a TSPS, is highly susceptible to acoustically coupled fraud. Acoustically coupled fraud is substantially obviated by an arrangement which intentionally interrupts the transmission facility periodically, thereby forcing errors in any acoustically coupled signals and causing their rejection at the telephone office. In addition, acoustically coupled fraud is obviated during transmission of coin deposit data to the office by disconnecting the coin station speech network from the transmission line during this time.
