This is a scam - DO NOT CALL THE NUMBER BACK they will charge $20.00 to your phone bill as a porn site.If you pick up your phone and see a missed call from a number you don't recognize, you may want to think twice about calling back.

You are the victim of a "one-ring phone scam," which the Better Business Bureau (BBB) warned consumers.The perpetrators use auto-dialing computer programs to call phones all over the country.

The scammers let the phone ring once — just enough to cause a missed call message to pop up on your phone — and then hang up. Victims who call the number back are connected to a paid "adult entertainment service" located overseas.

Callers are charged $19.95 international call fee, plus $9 or more per minute for the unwanted "service." (In some cases the scammers charge only a few bucks to the victim's bill to avoid suspicion.)

The BBB said the scam calls usually come from outside the United States, including from numbers with area codes 268, 809, 876, 284 and 473.

You are the victim of a "one-ring phone scam," which the Better Business Bureau (BBB) warned consumers about last week. As in most phone-based scams, the perpetrators use auto-dialing computer programs to call phones all over the country.

In this case, the scammers let the phone ring once — just enough to cause a missed call message to pop up on victims' phones — and then hang up. Victims who call the number back are connected to a paid "adult entertainment service" located overseas.

Those unlucky callers are generally charged a $19.95 international call fee up front, plus $9 or more per minute for the unwanted "service." (In some cases the scammers charge only a few bucks to the victim's bill to avoid suspicion.)

This is a scam call that entices you to call back and then you get charged a huge fee on your phone bill. Block the entire area code if you can (Mr. Number is an app on my cell phone that does this) This is the second call from this area code. They also called my cell phone from 268-762-0137.

I was told by the Attorney General's office that this is a scam. They call and let it ring once, and when try the number, you actually call overseas and are charged a high amount.
