On the afternoon of 11-12-2014, I got a call from 284-309-5330 and after the first ring, I blocked it from future calls using my Call Blocker. Then I entered it in Ask.com and found out that Area Code 284 is in the British Virgin Islands. The 284 area code has been linked to a form of telephone fraud known as the "one ring scam". The person perpetuating the scam calls the victim via a robodialer or similar means, sometimes at odd hours of the night and then hangs up when the phone is answered, with the hope that the victim will be curious enough to call the number back. When the victim does this, an automatic $19.95 international call fee is charged to their account as well as $9.00/min thereafter.
