One Ring Scam

Watch out for this scam to get you to ring Sierra Leone. Phone rings once and they want you to phone back, very large charges if you do.

Re: One Ring Scam

Go into you account and set your spending cap to £0 Then you won't be able to make chargeable calls outside your allowance.

Re: One Ring Scam

Or only callback if it's an 01/02/03/07 number.

Caveat: I know some 07 number ranges are Guernsey/Jersey/other international, that's where Doctor Google comes in.. never hurts to check a number before calling it back.

Certainly never call an international number back, they're pretty easy to spot.
