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've had 2 calls here in the UK this weekend. +216 22 157 050 today, and +216 27 314 493 yesterday. On answering they stayed on the line long enough for me to say Hello, twice then hung up without saying anything. I'd never ring back an unknown number. It seems these scammers are setting up all over that coutry.

21658502097. From Tunisia 2 calls. One last night 28th Nov 2017 and one tonight. While trying to block the number I hit call accidentally. I hung up and the call didn't have time to go through. These calls infuriate me.
