Thousands of citizens have been recently complaining about receiving phone called from international numbers starting with the code 0076, or other numbers with a country code belonging to Russia or other African states.


The citizens do not usually answer such calls for fear of paying extra charges or for fear of a possible data theft through transferring a virus into their phones.


However, the most dangerous act in this situation is calling back the number, since international pirates have come up with several ways to steal money through phone calls.


Therefore, the citizens are advised to follow the guidelines set by the Ministries of Telecom and Interior.
