    Google those telephone numbers. Others have also faced the same problem.

    It happened with me too, though only once
    I received the call and after picking it up, for like 16 secs of conversation, Rs 15 were deducted.

    I don't remember the exact number , I think the area code was +372 , and when i checked it was from Estonia. I think thats a gulf country.

    I don't have any relatives or friends in Estonia . It was a scam for sure. It happened months back from now. I got them in morning.

    DoT had already issued a warning against these scams. DO NOT pick or call back, else you're responsible. Report them to TRAI/DoT.

    Missed calls from abroad? Trai regulates ISD in prepaid phones | Firstpost

    It works in this way.

    The chor telecom companies tie-up with someone and make 'em do this.

    1. You get a missed call from a premium number
    2. Most People do not check the number they received missed call from and end up calling back.
    3. They keep you busy as long as they can.
    4. You get charged about Rs. 20-Rs.30. Sometimes as high as Rs. 50 or Rs. 100

    I guess attending the calls wont take any credit from mobile. Am i right?

    I get messages like this from a mobile number. Dont know whether it really comes from Facebook or some scam-mobile-number.

    From:9232232665
    Mogesh wants to connect on Facebook: http://fb.me/<some alphanumeric>.
    Reply "Stop" to stop getting facebook texts.
    I guess if fb really sends me messages, it should be like TM-FACEBOOK or something like that!
    Anyone experiencing this?
