      When you say the calls cross, do you mean you're overhearing others?

      What is the number of the calsl you did not make? Try calling one and ask who they were speaking to at that particular time.

      You are not in a block of flats are you? There was a case some time back where someone was in your position. It trannspired that the actial master socket was in a communal cupboard and illegal calls were being made from there. Someone had just plugged a phone in and was merrily dialling premium numbers at the users expense. I am not sure how it ended, but the Police were called in.

      My mum and had something similar ages ago and it turns out it was their sky box going online through the phone line to download software updates, this was a few years back so not sure if Sky boxes still do that, or even if you have a Sky box.
