East Mill police cautioning residents about robocall scam

KATAHDIN REGION—The East Millinocket Police Department is cautioning residents about a scam attempt involving robocalls coming from West African countries. In a post last week on its Facebook page, the department shared a warning that came earlier this month from the Federal Communications Commission about reports of a so-called one-ring scam. Robocalls have been targeting specific area codes with bursts of calls that often occur multiple times in the middle of the night. The robocalls typically hang up after one or two rings with the goal of getting people to call them back at the dialed number. The return call typically results in a toll call that is paid to the scammer and billed to the unsuspected calling party. There is also a potential for expensive per-minute charges during the return call.
