    Hey guys,kind of need help in this matter...i am getting late night missed calls from some strange numbers...

    +447937947111- this one called at 2:30 in the morning...

    +447937947162- this number called yest as well...

    Are these international numbers?...are these some kind of scam or something...a friend told me to avoid calling this number or even picking it up..i did answer the second one but got disconnected later & my bill shot up quite a bit..Can anyone throw light on these so called telecom scams..how do i stop them from calling me?

    EDIT:- +44793794160 givess a missed call at 8am...wtf is going on??What should i do??This is getting annoying...how the hell did they get my number??Help..

    Google those telephone numbers. Others have also faced the same problem.

    It happened with me too, though only once
    I received the call and after picking it up, for like 16 secs of conversation, Rs 15 were deducted.

    I don't remember the exact number , I think the area code was +372 , and when i checked it was from Estonia. I think thats a gulf country.

    I don't have any relatives or friends in Estonia . It was a scam for sure. It happened months back from now. I got them in morning.

    Hello Sir, would like a new credit card. Even if you already have, this one is great. Free. Get 1 ticket free for 1 you buy. Rewards point. But sir it is free, why don't you get it. Please sir, why not ?

    DoT had already issued a warning against these scams. DO NOT pick or call back, else you're responsible. Report them to TRAI/DoT.
