FCC: Don’t Be Fooled by ‘One Ring’ Robocall Scam

This is an open administration declaration: Do not return obscure late-night calls utilizing a West African nation code.

The Federal Communications Commission a week ago cautioned of “One Ring” or “Wangiri” (Japanese for “one ring”) trick robocalls.

Clearly focusing on explicit region codes, the considers frequently come on different occasions amidst the night, frightening people into getting back to back and piling on per-minute toll charges (like a 900 number).

“For the most part, the One Ring trick happens when a robocaller calls a number and hangs up after a ring or two,” as indicated by the FCC. “They may call over and again, trusting the shopper gets back to and keeps running up a toll that is to a great extent paid to the con artist.”

Up until now, the calls appear to for the most part be restricted to New York and Arizona, where individuals are announcing approaching correspondence from the ‘222’ nation code of the West African country of Mauritania.
