Yesterday was the most annoying night for me. My hand phone was ringing and when I picked it up, no answer on the other side and hang-up after a few seconds. It rang again; I picked up the phone and again no one on the line. I rejected their third call, and they used a “no number” call this time. I did answer the call since I scared that it might be an important call. But sadly it’s not; I got the same hang-up response. Lastly they try calling me and hang-up before I could reject their calls.
No way am I going to call them back. It is one of their tactics to make me pay for the IDD charges. Anyway I lost a few credits since I did answer their calls (I’m using a pre-paid number). I do not know who they are, fake lottery scammers maybe, you can find some of them here. They are using an Indonesia number (+6285253122886).
My last solution was to switch off my hand phone since I do not want them to disturb my sleeping. I switched back my phone this afternoon. Not so bad since I received only a call from them. I hope they will remove my number from their list. If they still don’t stop this annoying act. I had to get a new number since there is no way I can block them from calling me again.
What can you do when you receive a phone scam?
Call your house number, maybe they are trying to cheat your family members.
Never send any money, no matter what reason they give you.
Register my number with the FCC’s Do-Not-Call Registry or National Do Not Call Registry.
