New Jersey Issues Warning: Numbers Not to Answer

Today, when our phones ring, we see who’s calling. If it’s someone we know, their name pops up, and we decide if we want to talk or not. But when strange numbers show up, many of us ignore them.

But sometimes, we might get curious and call back these unknown numbers. That’s where it can get tricky. There’s a scam where scammers make you call them back by letting your phone ring just once. If you call, they can charge you extra money on your phone bill.

Some people want to make these tricky calls illegal. So, it’s smart to be careful and not fall for these tricks. Only answer calls from numbers you know. If it’s important, they’ll leave a message.
