0705 number

recently charged £18.87 for a 44 min call to 07053560969. How can I find out, without dialling it again, who this number belongs to? I have tried searching the internet but nothing comes up for this specific number. Have checked out my insurance companies etc that I've possible contacted but this number does not appear on any paperwork. Thanks.

Re: 0705 number

0705 numbers are Personal Numbers, & are usually legitimate. They are so called "follow-me" numbers, that can be used by someone to take anywhere on a landline or mobile, & are charged at premium rate. There should be a pre-recorded pricing warning played to anyone calling one of these numbers before the call is connected, according to OFCOM rules implemented in 2007.
