Missed Call Scam from +216

A new international pay-per-call phone number missed call 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.

Some reported numbers are:

HOW TO SAFEGUARD AGAINST MISSED CALL SPAMS??

  • The simplest solution is “don’t call numbers you don’t recognize”.
  • Today many smartphones display the location of the calling number as well. If not, just simply Google the ISD code before calling (first three digits).
  • You may also install third party apps like “Truecaller” that references a vast spam caller list.

I got called by a few different numbers, answered the call for the second one, and got it hung up in a second. I suppose it’s safe to answer them (though why would you), it’s calling back that seems to be part of this particular scam if I understand this correctly. Add the following numbers: +216 50 293 775 +216 50 223 067 Also, if it’s indeed safe to answer the calls and there are no consequences attached (provided you just answer with “yes”, rather than sensitive information), if that’s fact, I also suggest putting that out there so people… Read more »
