From digiaware.com post dated 31 March 2015:
A new international pay-per-call phone number scam has been identified from TUNISIA(+216).
These calls arrive at odd times and often disconnect after one or two rings, not giving the receiver enough time to answer the call. The call appears in your phone log as a missed call and tempts you to return the call.
When you do that, you’ll hear a voice saying something like “hello, you have reached the operator, please hold.”
While you’re doing that patiently, you’re getting charged per minute as per international call rates.
Same thing don't answer any calls I don't know, if anything leave a message but usually that doesn't happen, and blocked. Only several rings, indicated calll was from Tunisia. I did not answer as l know no one there No message. I have now blocked number
