Missed Call Scam from +216

A new international pay-per-call phone number scam has been identified from TUNISIA(+216).

These calls arrive at odd times and often disconnect after one or two rings, not giving the receiver enough time to answer the call. The call appears in your phone log as a missed call and tempts you to return the call.

When you do that, you’ll hear a voice saying something like “hello, you have reached the operator, please hold.” 

While you’re doing that patiently, you’re getting charged per minute as per international call rates.

How to safeguard against missed call spams??

  • The simplest solution is “don’t call numbers you don’t recognize”.

  • You may also install third party apps like “Truecaller” that references a vast spam caller list.

    Received a phone call from +216 42 602 216 today (I am in Sydney, Australia). And my phone showed me “Tunisia”. I straight away understood that it is a scammer. I answered (let them pay!) but they quickly dropped the call off. Of course, I did not call them back. I am not an idiot, I do not have anybody in Tunisia, why would I call back…. And such scammers are already well-known for some years.
