Calls and texts from Parcelforce with 03333440000 - Expert opinion

The number 03333440000 is rated as medium to negative by the tellows community. Many users report text messages being read out regarding the arrival time of a package. However, it can also be read that tellows users are sometimes called several times by this number. Others say that they are contacted even though they are not expecting a package or similar delivery. Since there are a large number of different reports with call reasons, it can be assumed that this is probably a service to read out messages sent to the landline. Such services often cause confusion because they do not include the original number of the sender.

If such a call seems strange to you, you should stop it and block the number.

    sedna reported Text message with the number ‎03333440000 as Trustworthy number

    sms service. delivers audio text message to landlines. it will only call landlines. to hear the message press 1. but this is how scammers work - press 1 to be directed to a premium rate number. understand that if you just keep listening and don't press anything, the computer will deliver the message without needing to press any buttons. haven't tried it when I get text messages relayed via this number but will do next time it calls.

    Called my landline earlier today. It was a text message sent to my landline. It sounded like a scam call but I hung on and just listened to the bot telling me to press buttons. The voice then read out a text message that sort of made sense. It was an appointment reminder that tied in with the time and date I am due to see my optician in a couple of days. I did search this number to find out about it and it does belong to an organisation called AQL Text to Speech. It sends text messages to landlines in audio.

    Audio text message to landline. Appointment reminder. They had my house phone number as the contact. Perfectly safe but don't press any buttons on your phone. Just hang on and listen. Computer will eventually just read the message. I get many messages like this from several of these audio text service numbers as I can never remember my mobile number when providing contact details.

    Janes reported number ‎03333440000 as Text message

    2/25/23, 1:21 PM

    Got another audio text message to my landline. Another appointment reminder I thought I gave these people my mobile number as the contact but obviously not. Will do when I see them next week. I used to get a lot of these audio text messages to my landline at one time from this and a couple of other text to speech to landline translation and relay service numbers but am now only giving my mobile number as the contact - when I can remember it!!!
    As usual with these audio text services, always ignore the instructions that the computer voice tells you to do. Just hang on and the message will be read out. Be aware that the computer has problems translating long complex numbers and can't handle emojis attachments links and answerphones.
    The owner of this number - a Leeds based techy firm AQL Text to Speech - has a brilliant web page that explains how all these audio text systems work

    Received a call from this number several times. As I m expecting an appointment from hospital. I thought this may be it. Can't understand a thing they say. They want me to get to a webpage and the message is full of numbers and letters that are unrecognisable. Left me worried if I am missing something important! Very annoying!

    Called several times telling me I had an SMS message even though I haven’t told anybody this landline number as I had only recently brought this phone (though people barely use landline nowadays). Probably best not to pick up this number.

    5/23/23, 1:09 PM

    it’s either nationwide bank or a parcel delivery sms but it did try to charge my skype which was out of credit upon answering the call - rude! at least warn us if it’s a collect call!
    but i have about four parcels due in so i’m pretty sure that’s it. however it is worth noting, it did come in a few seconds after getting off the phone to Nationwide bank which was weird so maybe it’s them with some kind of satisfaction survey. i live in usa now and it dialled either my uk skype or usa skype numbers but i can’t see which. i don’t call the uk often apart to fam but i do have parcelforce parcels due in from dad. so i’ll bet that’s it. and it’s not beyond the sneaky royal mail to penny-grab the call cost back!!!!!

    Nearly a dozen spam robotic calls saying press 1 to... (I
    'd hung up at this point), so don't know what it was about, and nearly a dozen calls I don't need to know, the actions of ringing so many times says it's not good, a genuine company wouldn't do that.

    But like I touch any keypad number when requested, that's what get's you paying for a premium call from a very expensive number, e.g. 09..., you never touch your keypad apart from to hang up, number is blocked now.

    came home from work did 1471 to see who had called....this number apparently called literally 10 min before i got through my door....as i was googling the number and reading comments phone rang again...i answered as i was expecting a call from my mum...only to hear this robotic voice so i hung up immediately...at a loss as to how they have my number in the first place as only my mum has this number.... reading the comments here i can confirm that 1- i have no iceland or any other supermarket home delivery due 2 - i have no parcels from hermes/ebay/amazon/parcel force etc due (very strange tho that a hermes delivery note has been left in our communal mail box but with no name or flat number? a ploy perhaps hoping that someone in the building will call the number just out of curiosity?) 3 - my mother has not left me a voice to txt msg and wouldnt even know how to do it and as said already she is the only one who has my home number 4 - i have no dentist/vision express nor any other appointments due and even if i did, it would come through on my mobile number as i NEVER give out my home number....interesting that i have tried to leave this comment on other number look up/scam aware sites and it has been taken down...

    This number called me at 12 today unfortunately I pressed 1,I hope my broadband won't charge me extra for it. The recorded message told me about tomorrow's delivery. At this stage I don't know whether it's a scum or jot. The fact is I'm waiting for a delivery.

    I experimented with sending SMS messages from mobile to landline; each time I got a call from 03333440000 and the message was read out. It seems to be an SMS message centre, with no indication of the sender. Not a dodgy number.
