Missed Calls from +375 +371 Hoax or Fact

Hi Friends, I have personally experienced this yesterday.

Please take this very seriously. People have been receiving calls from+375602605281, +37127913091or any number starting from +375, +371 number one ring & hang up. If you call back it’s one of those Numbers that are charged 15-30$ & they can copy ur contact list in 3sec & if u have bank or credit card details on your phone, they can copy that too. +375 is from Belarus From Afghanistan.. 371 is cod for Lativa…

Don’t answer or call back. Please FORWARD AND SHARE this to your friends and family.

 

This is a missed call technique used by scammers to trick users and get financial benefit from the mobile companies. Most of these dubious ISD calls will be from premium numbers, which are charged high when called back. Vodafone, Airtel and BSNL have infact issued a warning about it on their official websites.

Therefore, if you get calls or messages from suspicious numbers like +375xxxx, discard the calls and do not respond to their messages. And the part of the story saying, copying your bank account and credit card details from your phone by a simple phone call is nothing but an exaggerated hoax.

Who blocked you from his friend list?

Sophos, the security and data protection firm, warns Facebook users to be wary of bogus event invites that are currently circulating on the social network. Spammers have invited millions of Facebook users to fake events in an attempt to generate income from online survey scams.

One event, called “Who blocked you from his friend list?” has already tricked more than 165,000 people into signing-up, with a staggering 10.3 million users still debating whether to respond or not.

The scammers embed instructions into the ‘More info’ section of the event’s summary, which leads unsuspecting Facebook users into visiting webpage’s for online surveys or competitions, designed to earn commission for those behind the scheme. In some instances, users are also asked for a mobile phone number – which is then signed up to an expensive premium rate service.

Facebook users are reminded never to accept unsolicited invitations from suspicious events, and always think twice about clicking on links received via Facebook.

“These spammed-out event invitations and links to survey scams are one of the biggest nuisances on Facebook right now, impacting millions of users every day,” said Graham Cluley, Senior Technology Consultant at Sophos. “It would be great if Facebook was being more proactive in shutting down these obviously bogus events, as currently it’s far too easy for the scammers to fill their pockets through schemes like this.” [source]
