      Anyone able to check a VOIP telephone number ?

      Hi folks,

      newbie to the forum here
      glad to join

      I have just migrated over from TalkTalk a few days ago, ( for obvious reasons ) and have been getting telephone calls
      which appear to be from India ( Indian accent with callers ) which i cannot return,
      from this number. 01312612512
      Can someone tell me where or who the call comes from ?

      No Dial tone on the phone when ringback is used. reasons
      Tried to Google it but nothing coming up



      Thanks in advance
      Mungis

      Yeah, I get those too... What are the trying to sell/offer you? Last one I had tried to pretend to be Microsoft as I had a fault with my PC..... Not!

      It's an Edinburgh area code but that's just fake.

      Hi There,

      Yes it does look like Edinburgh, but it is definately not.

      As you may know Talk Talk got badly hacked on roughly 25th Oct and i suspect that their call centre in India is leaking Data (taking advantage of the hack)

      I could be wrong, but i am of the opinion that I am now a target for them as i put it up for discussion on the TT forum and no one is arguing ..LOL

      I think the call was to check i was the "bad guy" and that they had my I.P. address confirmed, as my P.C. started performing all by itself soon after.

      I sorted out any bugs, and all seems well now ( fingers x`d ) but I would love to pinpoint the original caller .!
