Scam of sorts

Recommended Posts

Just checked my phone bill and had an un expected £6 extra on top , so spoke to 3 network who were helpfull  . i needed to phone Ted carter tackle , so looked them up on the net  , the link below came up and i rang them on the 0845 number not realising it was Premium rate . 

Now i dont believe Ted Carter to be responsible , but expect its a third party redirecting calls via the 0845 number , just something ill be aware of in the future.

The phone companies have been getting away with this for years, I used my mobile to call an 0800 number and got charged 1.50p, I always look up numbers for a standard std if calling from my mobile, but these days you're lucky if you can get any sense from most companies by phoning them up :grump:

Tell me about it!!!

I called BT after moving to them from sky, first time my DD was cancelled, I called from mobile to 0345, to my disgust I had £24 added to mobile bill. After 4 more attempts they still keep cancelling DD's, so even the biggest phone company is up to these tricks!! w~#@%#s!!!!

 

Although I now talk to them on live chat

Thats exactly what they want you to do, they can have a single opperative dealing with multiple enquieries at the same time!

It's all about streamlining to maximise profits, a decent profit isn't enough anymore, obscene profits only nowadays.
