Sudden influx of calls to mobile phone
May 17, 2012 6:44 AM Subscribe
My mobile phone is suddenly getting lots (more than 30 in the last 18 hours) of phone calls from "unknown" numbers and numbers with strange area codes. No voicemails are left. In many cases, the leading three digits don't appear to be area codes used in North America (examples include 375, 736, and 486), so these could be calls from outside the U.S. and Canda. What's going on? What should I do?

Is this some scam? Can the callers do something to me if I answer the phone? Did my number end up on a list of possible suckers? Do I need to check my credit report? Should I contact my phone carrier?
(I just got another call while I was typing up this question.)
