This number is a scam where they expect you to call back to find out who called. It is a pay per call number similar to 900 numbers but the overseas version. 268 numbers are known as the one ring scam, some people have reported a 19.95 connection fee and $9.00 per minute charge on their phone bills. Do not call back. Area codes 809, 284, and 876 are also used.
apparent scammer 2687620137
Called 12:30 a.m. Hung up before I could answer. Did not recognize the area code, googled the area code found that it was a scam thank goodness I didn't call I'm disabled can't say for scam artist to get rich.
It's called the ONE RING SCAM to get you to call them.
It was just in the news today that scammers from the Caribbean are doing robocalls. These are scammers who want you to call them back so that they can bill you exuberant fees for all sorts of things snd even subscribe you to mysterious fees.
DO NOT ANSWER OR CALL THEM BACK!
We were part of the target scam. I thought the same thing.
No message left on my phone.
I have received calls from Antiqua, and Grenada.
Began receiving calls 3weeks ago on a fairly regular basis
I got this number calling me a week apart for a few weeks. Usually one ring at times where my phone was on vibrate and didn't hear it. I looked back and there were several calls a week apart which I never knew were there. I was stupid and called it back today and after about 20 seconds of a computer telling me to "Hold" for an operator, I hung up and searched online for the number and found this site. I immediately called my carrier which is Verizon and the worker I spoke with said he has had four or five calls today on this same number. He said the most expensive call he has seen is about $6.99 a min. If you have a problem, they will credit your account once it posts. So, I will have to call back after it posts to my account but it hasn't yet since I just called the number back. So as of today, Verizon will credit you back if you are stupid to call like I did. This is an international call and you can go onto your Myverizon website and block all international calls so you and your kids couldn't call them back even if you tried. This is probably your best bet to make sure you don't have this problem as kids will often just dial a number back to see who called.
Too bad there isn't enough of a security team for Verizon or a team hired by all the phone companies to go after and shut them down. They do it because they know that they are small fry and no one will come after them. at $7 a person, most people probably pay the fee and never even notice.
rcvd call 130 est 1/25/14 didn't answer. I have no connections in Antiqua/ Barbuda
Got a 2 ring call from this number. No one was there. did not call them back.
I got this exact call at 12:27am (just now) and then 2 days ago I got a call from same first digits but last set was 0040. No one answers. But my thing is that it won't charge me to talk to them because I am on prepaid straighhttalk. So Idk why I'm getting the calls. I think they get the number from a common game/app we all have downloaded.
WOW. This is a response warranting a reply. THANK YOU FOR INFORMATIVE INFORMATION!
Missed this call. Wondering if any of you guys also use skype?
Have had 3 calls from 268 762 0136 in the pat week. One of them was at 1am this morning. I haven't answered any of them either. Sure would like to know what is up tho!!!
Called and hung up on first ring....I will not be calling the number back.
Why did this number call me?
2 calls from 268 area code in a month's time. answered neither one no voicemail
Me too in Ca
I was a possible victim in the target debit card scam... Interesting.
They have been calling me too. No vmails, no nothing. No clue
Got a two ring call, didn't pick up because I had gotten a call from a US call that this site said could be doing the same thing. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?
Just got two missed calls from this number, it only rang once and they hung up. If your phone has the ability to block this number. I'm saving this number and blocking it!
M 2 in ny
Antigua/Barbuda called , I answered said hello. No one said a thing. I flashed back over to the other line, spoke for a few minutes with my friend. Once I hung up with my friend my phone ranged again. Again nothing. Lesson here is to clear the line if you answer that number via call waiting
Called my whole family at the same exact time. Hung up when we answered. Its and AT&T family plan wiht 5 sequential phone numbers
Got a call from this number at 11:30 am did not answer called back using *67 got a recording that it was not a working number
Called two times so far today. First call rang twice, the second only once. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize. FYI, Verizon is my cell carrier.
I got this call as well at 7:20 Eastern time, united states, Jan 28th, 2014
