Watch out for phone calls from strange numbers

posted in: Scams | 0

This morning I’ve received two telephone calls from different numbers beginning 009144. The first time, without thinking I picked it up and it hung up.

After doing some research it turns out to be a scam. They hope that people will be curious and ring back and then they will be connected to an expensive premium line.

It’s similar to this scam:

Scams can be really sophisticated or just easy to fall for. Please watch out.
