Re: 08001836403 is this vm?

Hi Ellie59,

   After researching this number it looks like a scam. I suggest you go to the telephone Preference service and register your number. This service stops a lot of scam calls and marketing calls.  https://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/index.html

Or you can call them on 0345 070 0707. 

 

Hope this helps

not sure where the VM employee researched the number - afaik this is VM sales - as to whether you should trust the content and any offers is another matter - they offer all sorts which generally does not make it through to the contract they send

Caller ID is easy to spoof. doesn't mean that is the number calling you

The TPS will NOT stop scam calls, it is practically useless as there is little policing of callers. Treat EVERY call as a scam unless you categorically know it’s genuine. You cannot ever rely on call ID.
