Missed Call Scam from +257

A new international pay-per-call phone number missed call scam has been identified from Burundi, Africa (+257).

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:

+25774855605

+25774855566
+25716124768
+25716130833
+25778804672
+25772330033
+25778805582
+25722286156
+25778805599
+25778805594
+25778806074
+25778806076
+25778805588

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.
