New Phone Scam Costs Users Big Bucks for Returning Phone Calls
Getting one ring calls from outrageous places? DON’T answer and DO NOT call it back!
There’s a new scam targeting cell phone users going around with “one ring” calls. The calls are coming from places such as Jamaica, Antigua, The British Virgin Islands and Grenada and if you call them back it becomes a pretty hefty charge.
According to the Better Business Bureau, these calls are $19.95 for the international call, then an additional $9 per minute.
I was victim to this scam but I never call back numbers I don’t know and in this case I was glad I didn’t! Be safe with not only your identity and credit cards these days, you must also be cautious with your cell phone usage. Common area codes with this scam include 268, 809, 876, 284 and 473.
