Scammers pick on any number to use - maybe a Grenadian number was an easy target????? Nothing is being done, right?

I recall that happening a few years ago with a C&W number and it turned to be some phone sex business where the Grenada number redirected callers to a US or UK number. I would not be surprised if it's the same thing raising its ugly head again.

Maybe Brian or CU might be able to recall the details from the situation a few years ago.

CU is the biggest RMC spy in this business. I would be careful with him.

But what about the International prefix surely you can't just dial 473 from the US and get through?

There is a persistent scam or attempted scam on our mobiles at the moment with text messages advising that you have won money etc, and to return the call... yeh right God knows where the number originates from, but it is overseas for sure.

Digicel should be able to track these numbers and be on top of this already because they would have issued the SIM CARDS.

473-520-9772 and 473-520-9777 seems to be numbers popping up on the radar.

There should be some way in which the telephone companies can deal with this problem by flagging or stopping these numbers. It is obviously an automated system generating these calls to, in this case, a specific area code (Utah's). Another thing is how come by just answering the phone you get charged? Shouldn't it be just the ones that are outgoing? For instance, with cell phones in US if you do not have unlimited service you should be only getting charges less a minute for each call or unfairly for each vmail you access - or is it each time a message is placed?

Nazi-B it is a very simple fact.If I 'ent take part in any competition I can't expect to win anything.There are/were two in the UK purporting to come from a certain bank.I got two in two days. All you do is delete them and go directly to your bank as I did.They have no such things going on.
