My friend is getting plagued by text messages from a number he does not recognise - the texts always say something like ' can you call me on this number 086XXXXXX - to call back press the 'dial now' option' . He thinks someone may be using this number to steal credit from peoples phones, so he doesn't want to text or call the number from his mobile. Could this really be a scam?Also, his phone will ring once, and before he can answer it, it's gone and it's a missed call from the same number. I advised him to ring the said number from a landline, but he can't try that until he's back in work
Have any of you gotten such texts or calls??
