I had a FaceBook message this afternoon from someone in Italy who had a call from my landline, at around 2.30 pm today. I did not make any calls to Italy. I am the only person in the household using the number - nobody else was here. Who is using my number? Am I going to be charged for calls made on that number by someone else? how can we prevent anyone else using the number to make calls? Help needed!
Try dialling 17070 and see if the number repeated is your number and not a crossed line
How did this person in Italy know how to associate your landline number with your Facebook account and sent you a message about it ?
TBH, you are probably worrying about nothing,you should be able to see the details of any calls made on your account after a couple of days if you log into your account .
Did the message quote your phone number correctly and ask to call again ?, or did the message you received from an Italian FB account that you are not familiar with just ask why you called ?
I dialled 17070 - it is my number indeed, so not a crossed line. Maybe I just check the items on the bill in a couple of days. Nothing was listed yet for today on the latest itemised list. Thank you for your reply! And for introducing me to 147979 - I didn't know this.
