Calls from strange +60 number

Postby toddles » Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:48 pm

I've been getting calls daily (and more than once today) from this number

+60 3 01

Haven't been picking up these calls on my hp. Looks dubious, and not even long enough to be a proper Malaysian number.

Has anyone experienced the same thing? Maybe I should call SingTel to get them to block the number?

Quite annoying and distracting to keep getting these calls.

some time it is the way the telco route the call via internet that results in such funny number, nothing unusual; or the caller could be using IP phone to call

for example, my HK banker's call to me always appear as a number from the eastern part of Singapore, not HK, perfect with 8 digits and starting with a 6, no country code of 852 appearing at all. when i return call to his direct line in HK, he is sitting there .... or he teleport himself ??

Oh! I answered the call and a China lady asked me "ni hui jiang hua yu ma?"
I reply "hui" then I hung up.
