Phone scam - death of domestic cleaner

Had a call from 0607094047 on our landline today from a male claiming that our cleaner was dead, he was her brother and that the funeral would be on the weekend. Was vague and wouldn't give name. Line disconnected and he didnt call back, number says not available.

Have contacted our cleaner and she is alive and well.

I have also searched and noted online that others have had similar calls from this number, and seems to be scam artist trying to get money for funeral.
