Area code 871
Area code 871 is not in use as of today. It is planned as a General Purpose area code that has not yet been assigned to any specific geographical area under North American Numbering Plan Administration. Although it is not in use as yet, phone code 871 is still a registered telephone area code in NANPA.
No telephone numbers begin with 871-xxx-xxx. If you receive a text message or a phone call from any 871 number, do not respond because the number is not valid. The number could be linked to scammers. Phone fraud is a $37 billion-a-year global industry, but there is one simple step you can take to reduce your chances of becoming a target: Never answer calls from these area codes.
If you answer the phone, the scammers consider your phone number to be ‘good,’ even if you do not fall for their scam. They will retry because they believe the person on the other end is a potential scam victim. The fewer phone calls you answer, the fewer times scammer will trick you.
