      Several Vancouverites have reported receiving phone calls from an unknown female caller who sounds as if she is in danger.

      The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) stated today (February 28) that they have received six reports over the past week from citizens who said that they received calls from an African area code.

      The call involved a recording of a woman in distress.

      The VPD retweeted the following tweet as an example from someone who received one such call, which involved a female caller screaming and sobbing as if being attacked.

      The VPD recommends erring on the side of caution and calling 911 if you think someone may be in need of help.
