    So.... one of the guys on my team got scammed this morning... basically... person phones up asking for an insurance quote... then says they have no credit and asks for a call back... the number they give you is a premium call number which charges 75p a min....

    FUKIN GENIOUS!!!


    I need to do me one of these!

    Surely any idiot can tell the difference between a premium number and a mobile number

    what u do is fill out one them online forms for someone to give u a call back (or a site that shares ur details). you put a premium rate number on there and it automatically gets stored on the dialler of any cold call and/or marketing company. They know shit about it and staff dont get paid enough to give a shit.

    Premium rate numbers can be linked to ur mobile or land line and still keep the same number.
