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.

Got the same call they played music of Adelle and Pianos, i think there involved in more then scams especially from Tunisia, they have all types of shady businesses.

The worst is they didnt stop till i had to change numbers they would persist in all hours of the morning whilst you have work the next day.
