Warning: Scam calls

#1

Hey folks,

Started getting these today and they are obnoxious as [redacted]…

If you get a phone call from +232 xx xxxxxx where it rings only once, ignore it and block it. It’s coming from Sierra Leone and they are trying to get you to call back where they sock you with stupidly expensive fees.

So far… 3 calls today for me and 1 for my wife on our cell phones.

I was getting alternating versions of the same phone number - one labeled Sierra Leone, the other US (with a one in front). I ignored both, blocked them, but still got about three more calls after the initial six. (3 for each)

Edit: and while at the space today, I got one from a female who identified herself as Kris Kristofferson. Not calling her back either.

Same here. Sierra Leone. Nice place to visit. Terrible place to get calls from!

Yep, got 6 calls in a row from that area yesterday. Had to block it.

Thanks for the heads up. Got several calls today. Blocked the caller id. Hope no more calls appear, but somehow they always find another way.
