Cell 'phone scam
« on: Wednesday, 29 January, 2014 @ 18:33:47 »
During the last months, a large number of mobile subscribers from almost all phone companies in Greece have received missed calls or short messages from an unknown foreign number, as revealed by an article featured in the Greek newspaper “TA NEA.”

These calls are usually made when the majority of mobile phone users are asleep or have turned off their devices. Later, upon seeing the missed call or getting the short message containing the foreign number, subscribers are prone to call back and find out who has been calling them.

As a result, Greek mobile subscribers are getting caught in a well-planned scam and get charged with extremely high prices, ranging from 10 up to 25 euro for the few seconds that the calls last.
