    Strange number calling

    I have received around 5 calls from a number in the last 2 weeks starting with 00322803.

    About the 3rd time I answered and was hung up on.
    Knowing there are scams etc I have declined the last couple.
    Anyone else seen this number or have gotten calls.
    I googled it and got nothing but possibly a Belgian number.
    No messages or texts.

    I have been getting a few international calls the last few months, just ignore them. I figure it will cost you a fortune if you ring them back

    Yeah. Figured if it was important they would leave a message or txt.

    Might be Nigella looking for @Rushy number

    Someone stitch you up by writing your number and "For a good time call..." on a toilet stall door?

    By all means give it to her.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    A pallet load of the greatest beer known to mankind would be no scam. Pure gold couldn’t cover the cost.

    I think the scam is they hope you ring them back then it costs you a fortune. Since I heard about this scam I always listen to any messages to check they are legit. No message no call back.

    All he has to do is ask. Couldn't be more than a couple bucks per pallet surely?

    Think you'll find it costs more than that to get someone to dispose of hazardous waste nowadays.

    I have herd of such scams, do NOT call back, it's like a disguised 0900 number that will cost you truck loads, a lot more tan just an international call.

    I have no idea if the number calling you was one of those or not but if you don't know it and they don't leave a message...

    I don't even answer private numbers... I respect their right to privacy.
