AUSTIN -- The Better Business Bureau has a warning about a new scam that could cause some trouble on your next cell phone bill.

People all over the country say they're answering certain calls, and then the person on the other line hangs up after one ring. When they call the number back they get hit with a $19.95 international charge fee.

The calls are coming from Caribbean area codes, and the scam is calling "cramming."

Call your phone carrier immediately if you believe this has happened to you.
