Do you answer calls when they're from an unknown number?

Phone scam experts say you can tell if someone is trying to rip you off, just by looking at the area code.

Criminals are hiding behind area codes like:  473, 809, 242, 246 and 649.  

'Secure My Social' says once unsuspecting victims pick up, con artists can make money off premium charges.    Consumer activists suggest you check the location of an area code on any missed calls, to see if you're the target of a con.
