NUMBER PHONE

What are scams using missed calls and text messages from unknown numbers?

Missed call scams start by ringing your phone and hanging up so quickly that you can’t answer the call in time. Your phone registers a missed call and you probably won’t recognise the number. People will often then call the number back to find out who it is. Apart from being a nuisance, the missed call can lead to a scam in two ways

The number you call back may be redirected to a premium rate service (a number that starts with 09) without your knowledge, which means you will be charged a lot of money per minute.

The number may tell you that you have won a prize of some sort and give you another number to call to ‘claim’ your prize, but they may not tell you how much the call will cost. This second number may be a premium rate number, again charging you a lot of money to get your prize.

Text message scams work by sending you a text message from a number you may not recognise, but the content of the message could sound like it’s from a friend—for instance "Hi, it’s John. I’m back! When do you want to catch up?" or "Hey big fella, happy birthday!". Another common tactic is for a text message to sound like someone flirting with you. Many people reply asking who it is and end up engaging in a lengthy SMS exchange with the scammer. Only later do they find out that they have been charged a high rate both for messages they sent (sometimes there are also charges for messages received as well).

Warning signs

  • You receive a ‘missed call’ from a number that you don’t recognise.
  • You didn’t hear your phone ring.
  • The number starts with 09 (which is a premium rate service)
  • You receive a text message from a number you don’t recognise, but which sounds like it’s from a friend.
  • If you return a missed call, a recorded message asks you to dial a different number (often starting with 09) but the cost of the call is not clearly stated.

Protect yourself from scams using missed calls and text messages from unknown numbers

  • It is best not to respond to text messages or missed calls that come from numbers you don’t recognise.
  • Be careful of phone numbers beginning with 09. These are charged at a premium rate and can be very expensive.
  • Look out for SMS and MMS numbers that start with 09. These are charged at a premium rate (sometimes even for receiving a message) and can be very expensive.

Report them

If you have received such a call or text, or if you have returned the call or text and you now realise it is a scam, you can report it on our website. You should also spread the word to your friends and family to protect them.

Geographic numbers

01 and 02 numbers These numbers are related to specific locations in the UK and are used for homes and businesses. Calls from landlines are typically charged up to 9p per minute; calls from mobiles between 3p and 40p per minute depending on your call package. For landlines there is normally also a call set-up fee, and call charges are dependent on the time of day. Most providers offer call packages that allow calls free of charge at certain times of the day.

Premium rate number guide

Short text message numbers Mobile text shortcode numbers are five or six-digits long and usually begin with 5, 6, 7 or 8. These numbers are often used to pay for new features in apps, to donate to charity, to enter competitions and to download games and ringtones. You may see these numbers in promotions asking you to text a certain word to a number or, you may receive promotional texts asking you to reply to them.

118 – directory enquiries Numbers beginning with 118 are used for directory enquiries services.Costs: Most calls include a charge to connect (can be between 50p and £4) and then a charge for every minute you use the line (can be up to £5 per minute).

0871, 0872 or 0873 These numbers are normally used for customer service lines, such as technical support lines, chat lines, tarot/horoscope lines and sales/booking lines.Costs: Typically between 11p and 15p per minute from a BT landline and between 20p and 41p per minute from mobiles The cost of calling 087 numbers is made up of two parts: an access charge going to your phone company, and a service charge set by the organisation you are calling.

070 numbers Numbers beginning with 070 may look like mobile numbers but they are different and can be more expensive.They are used to divert calls to another phone number. Small businesses and sole traders often used these to avoid giving out their personal phone number.070 numbers are regulated by Ofcom. However, PhonepayPlus can investigate services on these numbers if they are found to offer premium rate-style services and/or the number is being misused and if the cost of the call exceeds 10p per minute.

09 numbers These numbers are mainly used for competitions, TV voting, horoscopes, chat lines, adult lines and professional service lines.Costs: Between 9p and £1.69 per minute from a BT landline (other landlines up to £2.60 per minute) or between 50p and £2.50 per minute from mobiles

Contact the company that runs the service

If you want to make an enquiry about your charge, you should first contact the company that is running the service.

To find out who is running the service and the contact details of the company, please use our search engine or contact your telephone provider and ask for the contact details of the service provider.

What is an SMS competition & trivia scam?

An SMS competition or SMS trivia scam usually arrives as a text message and may encourage you to enter a competition for a great prize (like an mp3 player). The message (or sometimes, an advertisement) could also invite you to take part in a trivia competition, with a great prize on offer if you answer a certain number of questions correctly. The scammers make money by charging extremely high rates for the messages you send, and any further messages they send to you. These charges could be as high as £2 for each message sent and/or received. With trivia scams, the first lot of questions will be very easy. This is meant to encourage you to keep playing. However, the last one or two questions that you need to answer to claim your ‘prize’ could be very difficult or impossible to answer correctly (and may even require you to guess a random number).

Warning signs

  • You receive a text message offering you the chance to win a great prize by sending a return text to enter a competition.
  • A text message tells you that you could win a great prize by participating in a trivia competition over SMS. The first message may even contain a very easy question to tempt you.
  • The text message (or other advertisement) does not give you details about how to stop receiving more messages
  • The first text message, or the advertisement for the competition does not contain all the terms and conditions.

Protect yourself from SMS competition & trivia scams

  • Use your common sense: the offer may be a scam.
  • Read all the terms and conditions of any offer very carefully: claims of free or very cheap offers often have hidden costs.
  • Make sure you know how to stop any subscription service you want to sign up to.
  • It is best not to respond to text messages or missed calls that come from numbers you don’t recognise.
  • Be careful of phone numbers beginning with 09. These are charged at a premium rate and can be very expensive
  • Look out for SMS and MMS numbers that start with 09. These are charged at a premium rate (sometimes even for receiving a message) and can be very expensive.

Tried to call but missed it

86668

I have just had my phone bill to find I've been charged nearly £5 a week for a service I didn't subscribe too. EE gave me a number to call, and the gentleman was very unhelpful. He wasn't bothered that I had never agreed to them taking this money. I also only got one text to send 'stop' to 86668 on 20th May which I did, but i didn't realise they had been taking money 4 weeks prior through my phone bill. Surely this is against the law. Anything that is agreed online, should have some sort on text send to confirm A, it was you that set it up, and I honestly don't remember ever setting this up, and B to allow a cooling off period if you did. My income is very limited, so wouldn't waste £5 a week on this rubbish . I now have a new mob number as don't trust them that it was stopped.
