Just a quick note for users of mobile phones. We need to be very much aware that one of these regular scams is doing the rounds again.
News of this latest outbreak has been featuring on Joe Duffy’s Liveline again in recent days.
I’ve just got a call from one of these numbers now.
It began with: +252 4030……. and I Googled it and found that it’s the code for Somalia.
Don’t Call Back
It’s a world-wide problem it seems and the advise is not to answer the call and don’t call back.
It’s a scam and holds nothing but misfortune for those foolish enough to fall for it.
There is very little help or comeback or, indeed sympathy available if you’re caught.
There are loads of warnings – including this one.
