Re: Strange number

Nope, robot-dialler scam call.  Block the number in your phone's settings if its a persistent problem.

But never believe the "from" number anyway - for telephone based crime, it is trivially easy to spoof the number that shows up on the recipients phone.  Some of the cleverer crooks actually do make their calls appear to come from a number associated with a (supposedly) reputable company.

Re: Strange number

Odd that you seem to be a digit short in the number you gave.

But calls from +8001836 - 403 - 408 - 411 & 416 are numbers Virgin's Outbound Call center abroad use.
