Getting calls multiple times day and night as part of a ‘one ring’ phone scam. The FCC said the point isn’t to get you to answer, it’s to get you to call back.

The charges come from connecting to a premium number overseas and show up on your phone bill. There is a connection fee of around $20 and a $9 per minute charge.

Here are some tips what to do if you get the call:

- If you get a call from a number you don’t recognize, don’t pick up.

- The FCC says before calling unfamiliar numbers make sure the area code isn’t international.

- If you don’t make international calls, you can ask your wireless provider to block outgoing international calls.

- Report scams to BBB.org/scamtracker.

Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange

I got involved chatting online with a woman who claimed to be from Wyoming. She said she was an only child & her late father had a gold inheritance in Nigeria. She needed a next of kin to help her get the money. She talked me into helping her as she seemed kind & honest. She claimed to be a Christian in belief. She got me in contact with a supposed lawyer who needed money in the form of wiring money. After 2 months & a lot of money later to try to switch the address of shipping the gold, I figured it out. The lawyer then kept emailing me then calling and texting me. Lawyer claimed the FBI was contacted then I got an email from a fake FBI agent account from a Gmail address. The fake agent threatened me & my family. I am still missing the money.

Type of a scam Phishing

We receive a phone call and the person said her first name. She the ask twice if I could hear her which I replied “yes”. She then asked if we received a notice on the change in utility policy. I answered “no”. She then abruptly hung up.

This is very suspicious. When I tried to call back on that number repeatedly, all I received was a busy signal. The caller I’d phone number again was 808 666 9222.

Type of a scam Phishing

A contractor contacted me via phone and left a message to say he had just missed a call from me. I replied via text that I had not called him. He sent a screenshot of his phone log with my number having called him. I responded with a screenshot of my recent calls - there was only the one call back from him on my log, and no record on my phone that I called him. We both agreed this was worrisome and should be reported. I am worried someone out there is calling contractors using my phone number!!

Victim Location 34685
Type of a scam Employment

I received a phone call from someone claiming to be a job recruiter. The recruiter claimed to be named Carmen. My iPhone indicated that the phone number was from St. Petersburg, Florida. When they mentioned the career center name there was a skip in the call for a beat, meaning the line seemed to go out for half a second as their company name was supposedly given. I was asked generic job recruiting questions and casually gave out information concerning my first and last name, my e-mail address, and my phone number. It was not until 6 minutes into the phone call that I realized I had been talking to a machine. When I asked "Carmen" to repeat a question it did with exactly the same cadence, and then I realized someone was on the other end selecting voice commands. When I became suspicious, I tried to ask it a specific question. By this point I had heard several voice commands repeated enough times to recognize it was a machine. I eventually became confrontational and asked if I was speaking with a human and then the line cut out. I tried calling the number back but this time it was a male voice. I realized it was also a machine. I tried calling back several other times and was given a machine that asked me to press 1 to be put on their Do Not Call list, or to press 2 to inquire about more information about the company (the machine never once mentioned the name of the company), and it mentioned the following e-mail address: [email protected]

Unfortunately this is all the information that I have but thank you for your time.
