During dinner time, I received a phone call from an unidentified number. Well, the number is visible on my call ID but I just have no idea who is it from.
Thinking it could be from an overseas friend, I picked up the call only to hear crackling sound before it got cut off. Minutes later the same number called and when I picked it up it put me to a voicemail.
Thinking that I could be billed for it I quickly cut off the line. I felt uneasy about the call so I google it up.
A list of reversed-phone call websites came up and I found that many others from around the world are getting calls from this number too.
According to a forum, it’s a scam call which originated from Hong Kong. Apparently some lottery agent offering some service by asking for advance payment. So I called the good people from Maxis just to make sure I’m not being billed and thank goodness I wasn’t.
So the next time you see this +852 1589 0000 number calling. IGNORE IT or just hit the cancel button!
