Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett is warning the public to beware of a new telephone scam called the "One-Ring" scam.

 

Con artists are calling victims using an auto-dialing computer program. After the phone rings once, the scammers hang up. When unsuspecting victims return the call, they are connected to a paid adult entertainment service located overseas. The victims are usually charged a $19.95 international calling fee and pay $9 or more per minute. Some of the area codes being used are 268; 284; 473; 809 and 876.

 

Sheriff Levett said people should ignore incoming telephones they are not familiar with and do not return the calls. He also advises to check your telephone bill and call local law enforcement if you feel that you have been scammed.
