Just had a call from this number, called it back and get a girl say hello. ask whos this and they just keep repeating what sounds like "patience?" everytime you speak. anyway hung up as didnt want to stay on for long if its a premium rate scam

anyone heard of it?/ Just letting you know
 
Check your phone bill when it comes through...I bet you have been charged a premium rate for calling them back..it happened to my wife 2 months ago.

:censored: :censored: should be shot at dawn.

As a rule, never call back an unrecognized number, especially a number left as a message on your answerphone. They will call back if it is important.:lesson:

Good advice - although I'm well aware of premium rate and other expensive numbers.

Umm, seems to be a residential number. Maybe it should be removed from here? How would you guys like having your numbers posted on here :p
