Further to last week’s foreign phone call scam

Have you received a missed call on your phone starting with +231 (Liberia)?

Or perhaps +269 (Comoros), +216 (Tunisia) or +682 (Cook Islands)?

I saw your post about the phone scam, I just got the second missed call from a +216 number myself this week.

So I asked my brother Kevin, who has 20 years experience in telecoms, to write a post on how you can protect yourself against this and other scams.

He developed Callbrx himself (even did the illustrations!) down in Waterford, it allows you to screen incoming calls and do other cool stuff.

In fairness.
