    Just had a missed call, then looked and phone rang again and looked and it was someone from Algeria! WTF!

    I have no dealings with anyone, anywhere remotely close to there! Furthermore, the number they called on, is a number that only a certain people have mainly friends & family.

    Couldn't understand what he was saying, he said something when I asked who it was and then went "hi, how are you" and then i asked who it was again and phone went flat!

    Anyone have any Ideas? I am from UK.

    Google the number, usually this can pull up some good stuff. If not, there are a lot of algerians, I don't think we'll be able to figure out who it was without the number.

    I'm sure algerians call UK all the time. They're humans prone to error too.

    I bet this is a scam. If you call them back, then your phone will be charged hundreds of dollars.

    LOL I was wondering if it was a scam with a premium dial number, already forgot about it!

    Just curious to how they are collecting numbers though as well :)

    I'd be very alarmed if I were you.
    Rumors have been spreading that the CIA and the FBI have formed a secret phone task force located in Algeria to call people in Britain. Their goal is to plant a seed of paranoia in the recipient's head which will eventually grow into a full blown schizophrenia and finally lead to the person killing himself.


    Or maybe he got the wrong number.

    If it is a scam then they don't need to collect numbers they just use a dialler to call through a range of numbers.
