Calls from people saying I have called them when I haven’t

I have had several calls over last two days from people saying I have called them and they couldn’t pick up, I haven’t called anyone

Re: Calls from people saying I have called them when I haven’t

Hi AFM1, 

This is odd. 

Can I ask if these are people you know, or strangers?

Are you able to ring out and receive calls okay?

Re: Calls from people saying I have called them when I haven’t

One possibility is that your number has been randomly used as a fake caller ID by scam callers. Usually the numbers used by the scammers are swapped frequently so, with any luck, the incoming calls to you should stop on their own before too long if this is the cause.

Not people I know, no.... it’s increasing, am trying to speak to virgin about it but now on hold for 20 mins...no easy way to report it, last night had 5 people call me before I took phone out of socket, plugged back in this morning and immediately got another call

I can make calls and receive them fine...but I rarely do!

Re: Calls from people saying I have called them when I haven’t

Hey there AFM1 and sorry to hear about the calls. If they keep calling you as you've described, it would annoy me too. What goslow said is possible but I'd like to do a quick check on your line to see if everything is fine on our end. I'll send you a Private Message so I can take a look and we'll go from there,

 

Please reply back to it 🙂

 

Thanks,

 

Lisa
