Have you been receiving phone calls from unknown callers (mainly from Sierra Leone)?  Well, you are not alone.  These are scam calls. The FCC advises the following:

 

· Do not call back numbers you do not recognize, especially those appearing to originate overseas.
· File a complaint with the FCC if you received these calls: fcc.gov/complaints
· If you never make international calls, consider talking to your phone company about blocking outbound international calls to prevent accidental toll calls.
· Check your phone bill for charges you don’t recognize.
