Police cybercrime division warns the public not to answer cellphone calls with prefixes 00387 and 00960

The cybercrime division of the Greek Police (CCD) warned the on Wednesday not to answer cellphone calls or text messages (SMSs) with the prefixes 00387 and 00960, as they are being used by cybercriminals for financial gain.

The police said the calls are usually made from midnight on through the night, to prompt callbacks that charge the caller with huge fees.
In addition, the CCD warned the public not to respond to text messages or calls, and advised that they should erase the message immediately.

The CCD called on the public to report these calls/messages or such activities, anonymously if they wish, through the following:

- Tel.: 11188

- Email: ccu@cybercrimeunit.gov.gr

- Twitter: @CyberAlertGR

So if you have friends or family in Bosnia & Herzegovina or The Maldives, tough.

I have all my friends and family in the phone book on my phone. They show on the display as their name.
