The second that I picked up the phone they hung up. I guess it's automated and does that to everyone in the hopes that we will call back and then find we've been charged for a premium number. Never, Ever ring back a number you don't recognise. If it's genuine they'll try again, If it's a friend who hangs up so you'll ring them back at your expense instead of theirs is a friend you can well do without - unless you have prior agreement that doing so is O. K.
BEWARE THIS A SCAM NUMBER FOR British Gas. I had a robocall message left on my answerphone telling me my bill was due for payment and telephone this number to pay it?? Funny really as I have been with Octopus Energy for last 3 to 4 years so what bill and with who I think not!!
Message requesting meter read from BG as they state not had a correct read for over a year. SCAM. I have smart meters and actually spoke to BG recently and as part of call then they checked my billing by accessing my meter reads!!
British Gas (supposedly but I'm highly suspicious that it isn't). Automated call saying that our new account needs an opening reading and to call them back with one. We don't have a new account. No doubt they will want bank details etc?
0333 numbers are examples of a non-geographic phone numbers. These are numbers that are not linked to any locality within the UK. They were introduced in 2007 as an alternative to the traditional landlines that were usually assigned geographically through the use of a system of location-specific area codes. All 0333 numbers are landline numbers. However, unlike the ‘01’ or ‘02’ landline numbers, you cannot identify the area 0333 numbers are associated with.
