who called 08439884920

I just had a missed called from 08439884920. rang once then hung up.I did a quick search, there is some suggestion it is a scam number and that you can get charged even if you don't answer.

Is this true?

Who do I report the to?

Well I imagine the first thing to do is check your bill online and see if you've been charged.

Re: who called 08439884920

It's a scam to con you into calling the number, makes you think you had a missed call. The number is a 'Service Number' which begins '084'. You'll only have to pay if you call back. Virgin Mobile will charge 36p/min as an access charge and the owners of the number will also levy a fee, through Virgin, which might be £s. 

All you can really do is add your complaint to one of the forums concerning phone scams. There doesn't seem to be a specific category for complaints to the telecoms regulator, OFCOM.

Perhaps see can you register a complaint  with OFCOM using the 'Silent and Abandoned Calls' form here.
