JAMAICA is the latest country to have been affected by the 'Wangiri Scam', which resulted in hundreds of phone customers receiving missed calls from the +48 area code, originating in Poland, over the weekend.

The scam, translated in Japanese as 'one ring and cut', literally means that the caller calls once, then hangs up. By leaving the missed call message on the user's phone, the scammers hope that the users will call back, and when they do, they pocket the revenue from the call. This fraud method was said to have originated in Japan and has caused millions of dollars in losses globally.
