The wide spread use of telecom has also caused new kind of problems. There is again a trend of getting missed calls specially from numbers beginning with +92 series. Such missed calls are generally being initiated by fraudsters. It is generally advised not to call back to miss call unless it is from your known contact. These callers would generally tell you that you have won some prize money or inhereited some property of a deceased and would seek some personnel details such as name, DoB, Account Number, PAN number or even ask you to pay some money to receive prize money as transactional fee, etc. etc. These details are great threat to your safety of financial instruments. It is advised that please

Do not respond to any SMS from unknown sources prompting to call on a number. ; 

Refrain from sharing any personal information & identity proofs like Voter ID Number, PAN Number, Bank Account Number, Credit Card information or make any payment to people promising lottery or other unexpected awards. 

Do not disclose your handset IMEI or SIM card number to unknown callers. IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique code given by handset manufacturer for your number. This can be obtained by pressing *#06#. 

In case of suspicious calls, report the same to the concerned security authorities / service provider
 It is quite pertinent to say that once duped with some security details or money, hardly anything can be done even by Police. Hence why to take risk. Dedicate your self not to respond to miss call from an unknown source.
