Received this (unanswered) phone call, I presume its a scam, should I report it ?

 





 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Have been getting similar calls from +61 prefixes, I'd report it, if you have a Sammy, use Bixby call to answer it and see what they say

Why would you crowdsource the answer to this question?

 

I've never posted the question "The toilet is blocked with a larger than normal poop, should I poke it with a stick or try flushing it again" - Though certainly a problem I've met more than once in my life.

 

What repercussions do you fear if you do report it?

likely a scam, I also had two calls from +61 numbers to my work number yesterday and the day before. No one real calls my work number :)

Unlike the size of your poop, info and discussion of scam calls has some relevance in Geekzone I feel. I don't recall suggesting a fear of repercussions, merely advice from someone with prior experience as the the desirability of reporting it.
