Need to Know: Phone Scam, Help for Restaurants, Vaccine Eligibility
SaskTel addresses increased number of international spam calls
People across the province have received numerous phone calls from various international locations, only to have the unknown caller end the call after one ring.
SaskTel acknowledged the increasing amount of scam calls and is advising the public to ignore the calls and not call the number back. If you do answer the call, hang up immediately. Calling the international number back could result in long-distance charges.
SaskTel said that it is currently working with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for solutions to combat this problem.
