I just received a telephone call from a strange phone number.
Dialling 1471 afterwards, in order to find out who it was from, I discovered that the number was 091148.
Six digits isn’t anything like a standard British phone number.
Anyways, the caller told me that my email address had been selected from a list of UK landlines and that I was set to receive a £99 free holiday pass.
Having written about scams for so long I was wise to what this could be and refused to play along.
The caller, who sounded Indian, was quite insistent about wanting to know my postal address.
After asking him half a dozen times what the call was about, he hung up.
Has anyone else received a call from this number?
Can anyone confirm whether it is a scam or not?
