Yesterday at 1:43 my phone rang for like 2 seconds. The number was from Argentina. Today at 2:38 the phone rang the same way but the number was from London.

What could this be? I don't know anyone or anythig from there. This is creepy.

Did any online account of yours got hacked where you left your mobile number e.g. for verification or anything?

Was it a land line home phone or a cell phone? If you got that information from caller ID, you can't trust that it's who or where it says it is.

I've had calls that my Caller ID said was from me. My name and my phone number...calling me. Scammers can make Caller ID say virtually anything these days. And I've had three friends recently shut down their land lines saying most calls coming in were either scammers or telemarketers.

I don't know what all is going on in your part of the world but that's how it's gotten to be here in the States. It's a target rich environment for these people.

its usually scam callers. YOu can get devices that can detect these and block n even record them for legal actions.

I believe they are Cell phone numbers. And yes I did leave my number here and there for verification purposes so that's maybe how they got my number.
Won't be that dangerous to call them back since my phone has a prepaid card system (with very few left) not monthly bills.
I was just afraid that maybe the CIA is on me or something

Yeah, they're probably prank calling you during lunch break.
