        Just got a call from +252 70885502, came up as Somalia on my phone, since my links with Al-Shabaab are minimal i suspect it's a phone back scam as they hung up after 2 rings

            Most scam phone numbers are from African or asian numbers ,operators bar them but they use auto diallers and change their calling party number . Most are set up to cost you premium rate as most of these countries are infrequently dialled and therefore the tariff is higher .
            Advise is to ignore them .It's amazing how many people actually get caught though
