An article regarding some grub/s setting up a GoFundMe page to rip-off persons following the death of Brazilizn man, Ivan Susin, in Australia.

My mobile rang in our bedroom this morning and stopped as either the caller hung up or the call dropped out as usual due to the lousy signal in the rear of our home.

The calling number was +38760302550 which I dismissed as a callback scam but a Google search revealed it is in a block of numbers in Brazil, so I wonder if it is connected to the scam above.
