“Follow me” numbers.

This is a common trick used by scammers to appear to be in another country.  They register an internet number that appears to be in another country, but are in fact nothing more than premium rate numbers they can access via a browser.  The most common one we see is the UK +4470 (or 070) number.  There have been instances we’ve dealt with where a victim has lost more through their phone bill after calling the number than they lost to the scammer.  These numbers cost the scammer nothing, but the person calling it gets billed BIG TIME.
