Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has issued a warning about a phone scam that tricks people into making costly international calls. It’s called the One-Ring Phone Scam where the scammers let the phone ring once, then hang up, hoping the victim will return the call. If they do, they may be charged a connection fee as well as per-minute charges. Moody says never answer or return calls from unfamiliar numbers; Check to see if the country or area code is international before returning phone calls from unrecognized numbers; Request telephone service providers block outgoing international numbers if the consumer does not otherwise make or receive international calls. If you are the victim of a scam, contact your phone company about the billing.
