Indian caller claiming to be from Three mobile network wanting to offer phone upgrades etc to customers. My Three mobile is set up to alert me to potential fraud calls - if this number really is Three then why does it come up on my screen as a potential fraudulent number??? I said I wasn't interested.
I just leave it to ring out. Looks like a number 3 mobile would use to try and sell a new contract. The constant phoning is more than annoying and actually making me consider leaving the company if they persist my partner doesn‚Äôt get them and he‚Äôs on EE
Did not have permission to call me - I bought a pay as you go sim, The next day this number called claiming to be from three but wanted to know if I had arranged a contract with them ok? I did not have a contract at all. This made me realise he had no idea if I was with Three or not. It is a marketing scam. Three however must have sold my number to a marketing company to try and upsell me a contract and I definatley did not ask to be contacted.
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.
