MRFC Continues to Monitor Reported Phone Scams

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) along with the Mariana Regional Fusion Center (MRFC), continue to monitor reports of local telephone numbers receiving calls from unusual or unexpected numbers where the phone rings only once thus prompting a call back.

A snapshot circulating on social media and chat groups reports local telephone numbers receiving one-ring calls from a seemingly local telephone number with a 671 area code. It is important to remember that phone numbers can be “spoofed,” which means imitated so it seems like a local number.

Thunderstorms are possible or occurring within 20 nautical miles of the airport.  Seek shelter if lightning is seen or thunder is heard.
