Phone dialing

The +237 is the prefix (call sign) of telephone numbers of Cameroon. This prefix is followed by nine (9) digits. If a number does not start with +237 (ou 00237),it is not a Cameroonian number.

It is important to remember that insitutitions in Cameroon communicate with landline numbers. The procedure for obtaining a telephone number goes through a formal identification of the structure.

Since getting a landline phone number is difficult, cybercriminals use mobile phone numbers to conduct cyber-blackmail, blackmail, scamming etc.

We urge you to be extra vigilant when you receive calls.

Here we show you how to recognize a landline or mobile phone number in Cameroon.
