    As it is Valentine's Day tomorrow weI are arranging an internationally attended dogging session in East Sussex.

    We thought 0012102490540 was an American couple ringing to confirm their flight into Gatwick for a sensational night tomorrow but it was these ignoramuses that hack us off every frigging day every frigging week!

    Peter Newton reported unknown with the number ‎02102490540 as Telemarketer

    4/9/14 1:47 PM

    I suspect this is a call centre whose employees have to hit certain call targets per day the operators don't care if they sell the service or not, so any number will do to justify their monthly salary cheque. Annoying is an inadequate word to describe these calls, a little internet research revealed they are an accident insurance claims telesales company. Since I have no record of any accident or insurance claim in the last 20 odd years, they can't be doing their research very well, or they just don't care about the validity of the details they claim to have. It just boils down to money folks.

    Kevin Cooper reported number ‎+442102490540 as Spanish Chocolate Co Ltd

    8/21/14 3:34 PM

    This number has come up 39 times and each time the person hangs up. Does he/she realise that by calling from the USA to UK is going to cost them as our line is low call for UK mainland and premium for International private callers. Who ever is running this has got to have a 1st Class Honours Degree, with a PHD and a Masters in Utter Stupidity.

    Mike reported GO Green Energy FAKE with the number ‎02102490540 as Telemarketer

    6/11/14 10:13 AM

    This number just called me, and despite entries saying this is the Microsoft scam, and other fakey company fakes, this call was from "Go Green Energy Survey", a "genuine government department" wanting to know about my energy usage and supplier. When challenged, they said it was not a survey and they were not selling anything. Then stop wasting my time, stupid call centre man with fake name! Immediately called back, hung up on them.

    Unwanted calls from a USA number, I am in Scotland. They never answer or speak. This is now becoming a major nuisance. Please do something abot it and stop this company calling the UK.

    GrimReaper reported unknown with the number ‎+442102490540 as Cost trap

    4/23/14 2:09 PM

    Told the guy the other end that I was a black magician, and that in three days his heart would wither away like a prune.

    He seemed genuinely scared and said "f... you buddy" before hanging up, I have a deep voice and clear accent.

    Then I called San Antonio PD and in my best Midwest accent told them that a guy was outside the fire escape at 323 Broadway St San Antonio, TX 78205 smoking a cigarette looking nervous and talking Arabic stuff about Allah.

    They asked me some questions but I remained in character and just hung up.

    Not for the first time my mobile has been contacted today by a caller from this number. Fortunately I missed the call, but as I have elderly relatives who live in the States the fact that I receive an unexpected call with a US number is personally immediately stressful. I always fear one of my cousins will be phoning to say an aunt or uncle of mine has died!

    I have been getting calls from this number for around 1 year. I have never answered it and do not intend to. If it was someone wanting to contact me personally, they would leave a message or text me. I believe it is someone wanting to scam me or an unwanted sales call and they have no business ringing me.

    6/29/15 12:29 PM

    PPI automated 'press 5 to discuss your PPI claim'. I doubt that the San Antonio/Texas number on my phone was geniune and, probably a spoof.

    I guess all these PPI calls will stop, once the banks stop paying out.

    is it not time that all mobile companies put a block on these numbers, after all we are paying them for a service, they keep coming up with new phones, so you can block a number yourself, but in order to do this you have to have a phone or tablet that can do this, so we should all protest to mobile or BT companies to sort this out now

    Don't bother picking up it is just a plain scam and definitely do not call them back as it can either cost you a lot of money or take away your remaining credit you have on your phone! hope this comment helped! :)

    I don't know anyone in the USA who would have my number. Would be cool if they'd stop trying to call me and rack up my phone bill. I don't even have a block number setting on my phone (yes it's old and confusing.) Keep getting calls at least 3 times a day. WHY!!!

    I won't answer calls from people I don't know, unless they leave a message which I can validate.
    I gets on my nerves how they keep on regardless.
    In the past, I have reported numbers like this, but even that is using my time!
    I would like to know how they manage to tie landline numbers to mobiles, unless they have access to so-called secure files

    Didn't answer the call and came here to check the number. Lots of these apparently 'foreign' numbers are actually originating in the UK by using software diallers that mask the caller's true location.As other posters suggest, a good rule of thumb is - if the number looks suspicious it probably is.
