I got this call today at about 4:15 PM eastern time. It only rang for like 2 seconds and no VM was left. This is the second time a number from the 26 country code has called me in this fashion and I can only imagine it is some kind of scam. Most likely if you call back, the person calling you gets some kind of profit sharing from the phone company much the same way the "free" adult party lines that were based off shore used to work. Or still do for all I know.

I just got a call from a similar number today at 4:25 Eastern time. The number was 261-229-600196.

If I had to guess what was going on, they are hoping you will call them back so they can profit from some sort of revenue sharing with the phone company, much the same way the "free" 906 party lines work.
