Hi All,

I received the following email today:

"I am trying to arrange a video and photographer for my wedding. Could you please give me a call.
Thanks
Peter Mansfield"
07031972682

Something didn't seem right so I just emailed back asking for more information. I have just googled the phone number. Looks like various gentlemen are getting married from this same phone number and booking various wedding services. Costs are about 50p per minute so beware!

So "070" is a premium rate number even though it appears like a mobile number to the uninitiated like me???
Are there any other numbers like that?
