Rip-Off Alert: Missed call could lead to unwanted, expensive phone charges

Federal Trade Commission (SBG)

The Federal Trade Commission is warning consumers not to call back numbers they don’t know.

Even when the missed call appears to come from a normal 10-digit domestic number, if you call it back, it may connect you overseas.

When that happens, victims are charged expensive international call rates and may be charged for pay-per-call services as well

Consumers often don’t find out about the higher international call rates until they receiving their phone bill.
