Mobile phone scams are on the rise, and scammers are thinking of new ways to trick consumers out of their money.

One of the latest is where customers get a missed call and then call back to a premium number at a cost… And an expensive one at that.

Three warn customers over call scam

Three UK have put out more information on his scam below. They call it the “Wangiri” call scam and Three have implemented a new system which will look for these spamming call patterns, taking action to stop them where possible.

Simon Dukes, Chief Executive of Cifas, the UK’s fraud prevention service, tells us..

Fraud and cybercrime is now the number one crime threat in the UK and we must all be aware of the steps we need to take to keep ourselves safe. Always besuspicious of unexpected calls and never share any personal information with people you don’t know or trust.

Sadly, in these times of so many junk calls, many of us tend to drop any call that we don’t recognise anyway.
