Newest comments in Area Code 070

This shocking price is still being charged for calling patients in Torbay hospital.    I looked the number up - and thanks to whoever is hosting this website - because my mother (aged 95) had found it on her phone bill at £12.76 for 26.16 minutes. I too called my aunt in the hospital so can no doubt look forward to something similar I get my bill. I also remember that when I phoned the 070... number I had to listen for about two minutes before being put through to the extension for my aunt and then it rang six times before I was cut off - that happened the first two or three times before I managed to talk to my aunt, who is 98 and was in hospital with a broken femur     - just the kind of person one expects to reach a phone within six rings, obviously.
What is an NHS hospital doing allowing this?

Almost sequential numbers.... I want to report to the police, but where to start?

I have had a lot of calls from numbers that start 070 051 and its a con for you to call them back. I did and after 1 minute 30 secs an electronic voice says "Goodbye".
I noticed my bill was higher than usual so I contacted Vodafone who told me that I was charged £8 for calling these numbers back. It needs to be reported to the Police.

Hangs up when answered. Called land line.

Linked with 07005104497 as that has also been calling.

Rings, disconnects when answered. Purpose to the calls? (also I have been rung by 07005104497 day before - possibly 07005104498=evening, 07005104497 = morning version)

Scamm calls repeatedly on mobile.
Caller hangs up when you answer call.
Suspect scam if you call back and get charged.
Repeated calls all similar 070 numbers.
How can they be stopped?!

Getting really p-$sed off at these calls, trying to getting son to claim insurance for an accident 1 year ago. He was not hurt and has told them numerous times that he does not wish to claim. Surely this is fraud when trying to persuade my son toile a false claim!!!!!!!!

I keep getting missed calls from the same number. If I answer and it is a claims company they will get a piece of my mind. I'm on the tps so they should be checking before hand who they are calling

Each time you call them back they are charging you £18.00 for a 2 minute call you think they have not answered the call but you are listening to a recording for 2 minutes. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER BACK THEY WILL HAVE YOUR PANTS DOWN.
