who are spec serv

[ Edited ]

Hi All.

I've just had my latest bill from virgin and there are 4 telephone numbers at various days and times, all listed as spec serv ? I do not recognise any of them.  I must admit I checked my last few bills a bit more closely and there are a few on them as well,  also some listed as NG1 again who are they? 

 I have also been billed for a call to london again no idea who they are.!!!

has anyone else come across these?

thanks

Tricia.

Re: who are spec serv

It's the class of number. So rather than be to specific towns or cities they are 'SPECial SERVices' or Non Geographical numbers - such as banks, insurance etc any 0845/0870/0844 type numbers

Thank you benMcr.
I have tried online to find out who they are but no joy all the sites i've asked say i need an area code. and even the london number is coming up blank. which goes to prove reverse directories are as much use as a chocolate teapot.
thanks again I'll ring virgin tomorrow and see if they can shed some light on it.

Re: who are spec serv

I also have two numbers on my next bill with spec serv on.  But on rereflection, both numbers were calls made to Next.
