It’s emerging that huge amounts of Three and O2 customers are getting calls from a strange phone number: 0088213300744
Details are sketchy at the moment, but it seems that the number originates from Bangladesh, and some people are claiming it’s a call back scam that will charge you between £7 and £10 if called. These claims aren’t verified yet, but beware.
