Unrecognized number keeps showing on my bt bill - 0844 8730932

Hi,

 

The number 0844 8730932 keeps showing up nearly every month on my bt phone bill.

 

I have never called this number, and if i look at the times when they were called, all the so called calls were when everyone was asleep 2-4.30 in the mornings, or even when we were not at home.

 

I have searched google and there is no info on this number.

 

Firstly how can i find out what this number actually is and secondly how can i stop it coming on my bill.

 

i would be grateful for help.

Do you have any electronic gadgets connected to your phone line?  I'm thinking about anything that could be phoning home in the middle of the night for updates.

Hi.

 

As it's a regular occurance, it sounds like something is "calling home" to report something, e.g. a burglar alarm, metering device for electric/gas, water level meter, or other system designed to provide stats for example.

 

Do you have any gadget plugged into to your phone sockets anywhere, apart from normal phones and maybe an internet connection.

 

How long do the calls last ?

 

To find out what it is, you could dial it - which is 4.25p per minute, plus a connection charge. But it might give back a tone like a fax machine as it might expect to receive data.

Certain interactive services will make a phone call. You would have to unplug it to prove whether it was that making the call.

Have you tried actually phoning the number?
