THE SHORT RING CALL SCAM WHICH WILL COST YOU LOTS TO CALL BACK

Be careful if you receive a call which hangs up before you can answer it.

Your instinct may tell you to find out who is calling you, but you could fall foul of yet another premium rate call scam.

There seems to be a speight of these calls at the moment, where your phone will ring, but hang up before you could answer it. On checking your missing calls register, you will only see an 08 number or a premium rate telephone number, but no name.

If you call this line to see just who was calling you, you will find that you will be charged a rediculessly high rate for making the call. They may only keep you on the phone for a minute or so, but they make a packet in that time, at your expense.

The scammers use software which calls thousands of numbers automatically, and they make fortunes out of those with the curiosity to find who the caller was.

If you recieve one of these calls:

  • DO NOT CALL THE NUMBER ON YOUR MISSING CALLS REGISTER, UNLESS IT CLEARLY GIVES THE DETAILS OF A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND.
  • DELETE THE NUMBER FROM YOUR PHONE’S MEMORY

REMEMBER OUR MOTTO:

NEVER BE THE VICTIM!
