    so basically, it's a Golden number, that once called it will charge you almost all your mobile credit balance !
    be careful !

    They register a golden number, they can assign a high rate and get a profit for 80% of it.
    some people have this as a job and a method to get their income, they are making loads of cash, hacking "sip " accounts, and reseller, voip, skype, etc.

    What ever it may be but it doesn't look like a real job request. Better to avoid these kind of requests. Thanks for sharing this information.

    I experienced something of such, a foreign number flashed me and i recalled only to have almost my entire credit wiped.

    A call to the customer care rep told me similar thing...

    These are called premium numbers i am not sure malasyan service providers provides premium number, but numbers from UK, Austria ( 084, 087 and 90) are famous few years before. You buy a number from BT and if any one calls your number he will be charged high and at the end of the month BT pays your money you received for that month.
    But now this business is totally stopped as far i know.

    Fiverr is not the only place where scammers thrive. Beware of this guy, he is previously banned and he adds BHW users on Skype and requests money. he says he is from the USA but he is from an asian country.

    Doesn't seem like a job request for me. Everyone should be careful when making a deal.
