SMSs, Scam Calls, Spam

If you receive calls or SMSs from unkown numbers and which you suspect to be spams, send a simple SMS to report it so measures can be taken against fraudulent companies.

 

What is a spam?

Spam is a fraudulent SMS or voice mail, usually generated by robots, which aim to make you call back surcharged phone numbers.

Examples:

-          Salut c moi? (Hello, it's me.) J'attends toujours ton appel, à croire que je t'ai laissé mon numéro pour rien, rappelle moi au 0899XXXXXX. (Still waiting for you call. It seems I left my number for nothing. Call me back at 0899XXXXXX.)

-          INFO: Tirage au sort réalisé sous Contrôle d’Huissier. (Lottery under notary control.) Vous êtes le Gagnant du Chèque No:345786 Composez le 0892XXXXXX pour le retirer dès à présent. (You won check # 345786. Dial 0892XXXXXX to claim it.)

-          FELICITATIONS! (Congratulations!) Vous avez été tiré au sort à 10h27 pour gagner 1 SEJOUR pour deux à l'ILE MAURICE dans l'Hôtel XXXXXX 5 Etoiles !!

Remember one elementary rule:

If the number is unknown, do not answer, particularly for calls or SMSs from numbers beginning with 0890.

You receive an SMS from a number beginning with 06, but inviting you to call back to a surcharged number. Do not answer! Transfer it to 33700!

 

Example:

Chloé vous a laissé un message- durée 32 sec. (Chloé lelft you a 32 sec. message.) Ecoutez son message - appelez le 08 99 XX XX XX code 2578 - 1,35 € + 0,34 € / min. (Listen to the message, and call 08 99 XX XX XX, code 2578 - €1.35  + €0.34 / min.)
