Phone number spam: 1-801-697-0461

Some types of spam do not advertise websites. Potential customers are given a phone number to call. Mostly these spams advertise fraudulent "university diplomas" from fake universities without courses or a campus.

Here is an example.

If you receive such spam advertising phone numbers not listed here or if you have any information about the spammers or how to fight them, please contact us!
