Inveterate dabbler in business, travel, gadgets & life

Just had an SMS from Chris warning me not call back 08718717123 if you see a missed call. Apparently its a scam from an outfit called Global Direct. Checked the number on google and came up with this blog someone else who was caught out. Cunning SCAM, if very annoying idea anyway.

This follows on fromanother new scam. I received on fax yesterday (number withheld) from “Janet Brown Holdings” asking me to call 07984935756 as they were very interested in my companies services! Checked on google using the post code given on fax and came up with this so obviously Janet is aka Julie Hansen Holdings! Interestingly 07984 is a regular one2one mobile number – wonder if it pops you through to a premium rate number? Don’t think I will try!
