It happened to me last night around 12.30am.
It was my mobile number this time.
The phone rings twice, and then the call drops.
By the time I get to the phone, there is a missed call from 03598815400011
That is a number from Bulgaria and more than likely, a premium rate number.
I had a quick check online to see if there are any other reports on this number and low and behold, there are plenty. It does however appear to be a new number in use.
I was amazed to read some of the comments on one site and a few of the questions
I have listed below:
“How do they get my number?”
“Why are they ringing me at that time of the morning? I’m not likely to answer”.
“Why do they only let it ring once, I will never be able to answer the phone that quick”
Some people just don’t seem to understand when they are about to be conned even when it jumps up and bites them on the nose.
They didn’t “get your number”.
And the reason why it only rings once is because they don’t want you to pick it up and answer it.
(If you do, that costs them money and they don’t want to actually spend any money, they just want to make as much as possible).
Here is a copy of my reply I posted in reply to one comment.
