Woman on cellphone.If you received a call on your mobile phone from an unknown caller then suddenly hangs up after 1 or 2 rings, make sure to think twice before returning the call, especially if the number is unfamiliar to you.

The reason; a new scam has been reported by many consumers lately. According to the BBB or Better Business Bureau, the new scam called “The One Ring Scam” starts with a phone call from an unknown user who then hangs up after one or two rings. Most cellphone users would return the missed call thinking that it is important, however, when they call back, they only hear music and some advertising.

What the caller did not know is that they are already billed for the international call and had been connected to a third party, caller-paid service.
