This scam as been doing the circuits for a couple of weeks now. Similar to a fax scam in operation, possibly same people involved. Like all this type of scam, report it to the authorities, so the line can be disconnected.

Delete and move on...

A variation on this one, you get engaged tone so you dial again. But the engaged tone is on an answering machine, so every time you dial, the call is answered and you've been charged.

Worth reminding those who missed them first time around (that's a contradiction in terms, but you know what I mean). Keep 'em coming, johnny!
