Take care of +447….. numbers

A few days ago I was asked about a cheap iPhone seller in the UK. Or that appeared to be UK based.

Their phone number started +447…

Obviously +44 is the UK country code. But +447… are international forwarding numbers. That means this person/phone can be anywhere in the world. In the past they where mainly in Nigeria. But now seems like scammer all over the world like those phone numbers.

Here is an old blog about +447 from fraud expert Joe Wein:

Take care!
