    It came on my landlines number.

    Like others, slightly muffled, but the recorded message pretends to be a BT voicemail service. I did press 1, but immediately realised that was stupid as I am not a BT customer. Looks like I didn't pick up any charge for the call though. Over the next twenty minutes they called twice more, but I immediately hung up each time.

    This number is a scam. Pretends to be BTtext messaging system. It actually uses a copy recording of an actual BTtext messaging voice. In the same way as BT it instructs you to press 1 to hear the message, at this point it transfers you to a high premium call and politely requests you to hold. This does not happen on a genuine BT text message. I cancelled the call and blocked it straight away, however the few seconds that passed once I had pressed the “1” cost me 0.18p from my Virginmedia provider. Since then the caller has being trying to call sometimes over 10 times a day. Fortunately my Telephone system just blocks the call. This is a real money earner scam for those who set it up.

    Errr - this number does not leave messages! It is an sms service operated by BT for several phone providers that relays an audio translation of a text someone has sent to your landline. It cuts out when an answer phone cuts in. If you answer it, a computer will tell the originating number of the text and you will have options what to do next. Scam texts are no problem unless you are very vulnerable and the originating number is the scam number not this relay number. Spoofed calls from this number could be dangerous so important to understand what a genuine call sounds like. Plenty of posts on this site and on other sites that provides further info about identifying a genuine call and blocking this number if that is what you want to do. Also check the BT web pages that a google search of this number will throw up.

    To block this number you may need to refer to your phone provider. Most will provide a 'free' blocking service but be aware that some may have an upper limit on the total number of blocked calls after which time they may not work. Also, as this is a BT owned number (check their text service web page) blocking services may not always work but there are alternative means to block this number - many details are available on various web sites. This site provides a blocking service. Be aware that legit calls from this number will be when someone has sent a text to your landline although not all calls will be legit.

    For better reason than you Sparky, try better to provide FACTS rather than self-serving opinionated and baseless accusations against UK telecom Co's that are not reading & then censoring content of ANY text (or our voice calls either).
    Are you from Planet Zog by the way, or still just making feeble efforts to promote your employer's business interests?
    And it's way past your bedtime, AGAIN!
    Guess you must be missing school & your buddy wuddy troll buddies ramping up naff votes.
