Here are this week’s top three callers:
1. 02073451299 from London with a tellows score of 8
2. 0166886633 from Bamburgh with a tellows score of 8
3. 07520905078 a mobile phone number with a tellows score of 6
No changes on rank 1: this week’s favourite has reached more than 4000 queries by now. Everything looks as if we are dealing with a lottery scam. Beware and remember never to tell unknown callers or strangers any of your bank details.
And again, we are quoting user wickedshelly here:
called me today whilst in the middle of my shopping! told me i had won a comp for an ipad and £1000 lady then asks if i have ever entered the euromillions and wanted to know how many lines!! i then questioned whether shed want my card details to which she said yes! this is when i told her to never contact me again as i dont buy into scams! somehow this company had my details, must have been passed on through a third party along the way but i certainly dont appreciate it!
On rank two, there is a newbie from Bamburgh amongst our top 3 which seems to be nothing more than an automated silent caller.
I am sick to death of this caller continually calling me, morning afternoon and evening, nobody speaks and then you get the engaged tone. It calls a minimun of 4 times a day, everyday. Have tried phoning the number but it doesn’t exist. Please can someone stop it!!!
This is what Lisa wrote already some weeks before:
I’ve just reported this number at http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/tell-us/telecoms/privacy/silent-call/ – don’t know if it will help but shouting down the phone hasn’t stopped the 2 calls a day i have been receiving for over a month now!!
For the 3rd most annoying caller, user Mr. E wrote:
Missed call like all the others, I’m in the UK and it went straight through to an American answerphone saying I was 7th in a queue so promptly hung up!
Would be nice to know exactly who it is!!
Indeed! Our guess: another automath checking active numbers in order to call back later with particular offers.
We look forward to a nice weekend and sure will bring you some news next week.
