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!

  1. This one person am talking to claims he is from the US but the English he writes is so broken and that to me is not from someone from the US, I know because I have friends from the US…..he sends his number and the code is +447 almost believe him but his English raises an alarm.

    This was helpful, am blocking him.

    • Everything starting with +447 is usually a scam. It’s an international UK forward number. The user can be anywhere, often it’s Nigiria.

  4. I was contacted by “Alfredo Williams” on Instagram and he is claiming to be from Italy and currently residing in Stratford England. He said that he works on a cargo ship and consequent to this, he is unable to video call, for security reasons. He said that his wife died three years ago and that he just started looking for someone. He claims that he has a daughter and that she is in boarding school. He also claims that he sent me a package with handbags, jewellery, a phone and a laptop. The pictures were taken from the internet. He told me that I will have to pay $10,000 for clearance fees on Monday. Thankfully, I was not fooled. I hope that no one else is and that this information is useful!
