    Default What the heck?!

    I got this overseas phone call today that rung once or twice and then hung up ( I don't have family call my mobile from overseas so it's not anyone I know)

    +378 66135031

    I rang the number back and it's in a complete other language what sounds like a pre recorded something ( cant be certain though) with a girl laughing intermittently...

    What the heck?! Feel free to phone it of your bored and have free international phone calls to help me decipher what the heck it's about..

    The girl laughing is apparently a phone scam.

    I'd be checking to see how much money you just spent returning the call!

    Never ever return phone calls to unknown numbers, they usually are scams and you will keep being hassled.

    It's a scam for sure. They kept ringing DP at the exact same time everyday for nearly a week. It would ring twice then hang up. We googled the number and it came up as a scam...

    OP - I'd check your phone bill!

    Id side with caution on returning such calls, you could find yourself scammed big time
