New Cell Phone Scam – If It Rings Once Don’t Call The Number Back

Here’s a scam, there’s a scam, every where a scam, scam.  It seems that every time you turn around, a new scam has surface.  Before we know it thieves will find a way to scam us for blinking.  Today’s new scam involves your cell phone.  It seems this is happening around the Chicago area but it is only a matter of time before it spread so here is your heads up.

The Better Business Bureau in Chicago issued the warning.  Here’s how it works:

Scammers are calling cell phones and letting them ring once.

Person who got the call curiously calls the number back to see who called.

Well they are immediately charged a $19.95 international call fee, then they are on the phone waiting to be connected to someone and are charged $9 per minute.

Avoid the “One Ring Scam”  don’t answer or call back international numbers.

My policy is if I don’t recognize the number I don’t answer it.  If they don’t leave a message it wasn’t that important.
