**** HEADS UP **** Do not answer *** do not call these numbers ***

Heads-up: Scammers have cooked up yet another phone scam. It's not a robocall. It's not a sales pitch. In fact, with this scam- when the phone rings, there's no one on the line. If you call back it will cost you hundreds of $$$.

It's called the "One Ring" scam, because the scammers program computers to send blast out thousands of calls to random cell phone numbers, ring once, then disconnect. The objective is to make you curious about a call you missed and return the call right away. This is just a new twist on an old scam that started years ago in Jamaica. The "one ring" variation is believed to have started in Japan.
