Sheriff Will Wise of DeSoto County warned about a new scam called the One Ring Phone Scam. It happens when the scammer calls your cell phone and lets it ring just once, just enough to cause a “missed call” message to pop up. The unwitting soon-to-be victim who calls the number is connected to a paid “adult entertainment service” located out of the country.
These callers are charged approximately $20 for the international call fee plus $9 more per minute for the “service.”
