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. 

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.

+21671067902 and +21675202058 both called today. One ring and hang up. I didn't pick up or call back because I though it was suspicious that it ringed only once.

One called me and 5 minutes later the other also called. Didn't answer because I didn't recognize the numbers and it was late in the evening.

Exactly as described, one ring is it all at my very new and private number which impossible to be known by someone from Tunisia, or anyone else except my very close ones. So, doubtlessly scam: +21642609794 (in format of +216 42 609 794). And this call came just after an hour of another scam call from +87810 70021620, which is a virtual number, and again one ring was all.
