Can anyone identify the following phone/sms number.

7000 34432

Apparently a call or sms has been made/sent to the above number at a cost of £1.50.

ICSTIS have no control over this type of number, so i'm at a loss who to report it to, apart from the service provider.

All help, ideas appreciated.

From memory ( I will check Monday when at work )
The number is rented by an individual or Company which they can re-direct to another line , mobile-abroad-or land line, supposedly as the 'client' is travelling and needs a single number.Very similar to a PO Box number. Most of them are a scam of some sort and when you try to ascertain whom is really responsible you get no-where ( I have tried) but it involve's people thinking " Oh it is not a mobile it is OK". If you can give me some more info- NOT PERSONAL- ( public forum ) I will try and help.BA i.e is it 0207 or as in the original thread?

The number shows as 7000 34432. There is no leading zero as in a usual number.

Plus no-one in the house is aware of even using the number. Luckily there's only the one charge of £1.50, but i'm trying to avoid a £300+ bill at a later date, as i've heard of with the porn diallers and such.

Is this number on a printed bill or did you check your bill online?

Online. Been trying to check it out, but cant find any info on 7000 code phone numbers.

Did I read this correctly? You are trying to find the culprit for a £1.50 phone call. Not £150 or £15,000 ?

Um, time could be better spent elsewhere, I would suggest.

Yes you read right. the call was £1.50. Which i'm not unduly worried about. What I want to avoid is there suddenly being £300 worth of £1.50 calls on our phone bill.

Its not likely if you read my link.

Valvegrid's link says calls charged at band 'd' for calls to Personal Numbering (for that is what it is).

BT don't give a fixed price, but a price in pence per minute:

I should take this up with BT.
