Anyone else get a call from this number? Pretty sure it's some scam where they pretend to be 110 and demand personal info.

If local Police want info they will come to you, any one rings for bank details you know that is a scam.

This number is on my 'missed call' list for yesterday. If I don't recognise the number, i.e. not in contact list, I don't answer.

Might be better to answer, somebody might be checking to see if you're apartment is empty - business name cards left on apartment doors are sometimes for this purpose - if the cards are still there a day later, some thief may figure you're out of town. Or so my landlady says.

I wouldn't answer this call. It's international and the scam is to get personal info, so they don't have your address. Also, slightly menacing, as they pretend to be from 110.

So you answer it, they want personal info and you don't give it - what's the problem?

Or just not answer it, and not get freaked out or possibly tricked with all their con artist tactics the one day your caught off guard.

How the hell people fall for this sort of scam these days is unbelievable, this phone call has scam written all over it! They may as well phone up and say 'this is a scam, please transfer your money to us at this account, thank you' as I can't understand how these people are so gullible as to pay up lol
