Lafourche Parish, La. (KLFY) – (5/3/19) Did you get a scam call last night?

Many people in Louisiana received calls from Sierra Leone last night, most of which rang only once or twice.

It’s called the “One Ring” scam. The aim is to have you call the international number back, resulting in high phone charges. DO NOT call back. Instead, authorities  recommend simply blocking these numbers.

There are also several apps you can install to identify potential scam phone calls. ‬
