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.

It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right? Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships. In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with… Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life. It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love. ===> (The secret obsession that makes men fall in love) – (What men look for in “The One”) <===== And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession… He will make it his… Read more »
