April 29, 2021 – People across Saskatchewan have received numerous phone calls from various international locations, only to have the unknown caller end the call after one ring.

SaskTel acknowledged the increasing amount of scam calls and is advising the public to ignore the calls and not call the number back. If you do answer the call, hang up immediately. Calling the international number back could result in long-distance charges.
