Got a call from +381607910411? Beware! It is a missed call scam

A large number of people in Singapore have received a missed call from this number. The missed call came from Serbia. But think twice before you call back that number. This might be a missed call scam!
When such a call is received, the caller may ring once and hang up. The curious receiver of the call may then call the number back and as a result is charged $15 to $30 for returning the call. Or, the receiver of the call may answer the phone thinking it is a legitimate call.
In both instances, the release says, the time spent on the call allows the possibility of the foreign caller to remotely hack any private, personal and sensitive information one may have stored on their phone, including contact lists, bank account information and credit card details.
In furtherance of the scheme, once contact information from one’s cell phone has been stolen, the caller may make contact again. This time posing as one’s cable provider, internet service provider, bank or other business establishment based on information only gotten through the original hacking of the phone. The foreign caller then attempts to swindle individuals through some other type of ruse.
Even if not successful in their secondary swindle, the hacking of personal, sensitive and confidential information is the scammer’s aim. Obtaining such information is, in and of itself, of value to the scammer and may work to the detriment of the owner of the information.
