<br>The back story....

I go out to the pub on a Sunday afternoon [Quelle suprise] and read my paper and have a bit of banter as well.

The following is from The Mail On Sunday(UK paper) financial help section and is basically a fake cheque scam submitted by a vigilant reader.

Name of company Ronald Harvey, which the lad has piggybacked.

His telephone number is a UK mobile ....O703 181 8974. This number has been published by the newspaper.. The lad's name is Michael.

The journalist ends his piece with this..." I'm sure I couldn't encourage readers to harrass Ronald, sorry Michael, but if anyone can get a better answer from him, do let me know."


Over to you.

The journalist at the Mail is Tony Hetherington [Readers Champion] and he does an excellent job on this stuff. Link to the site ....

www.thisismomey.co.uk/columists

Maybe we can use this to raise the profile of this type of fraud and also this site's battle against it?

Tommo, The number you quote is not a mobile phone, but a personal number, such as those issued by flextel and the like.

Although 07 is the prefix for mobiles, 070 is reserved for personal numbers.

Time difference here in New Zealand is about 12 hours. Anyone know how much it would cost to call that number from Skype?

^^^^ When you put the number into Skype, it'll tell you how much the call will be (per minute) before you even call.

If anyone can speak to this Lad and record it, I'd be quite happy to send it on to the Mail on Sunday.

^^^<br>Thank you for posting the full article.

I don't have a scanner. No, honest, I don't. I'm not kidding. Hence I can sleep easy at night when the lads tell me to scan the stuff and I say I can't. Shame! Crying or Very sad

Skype bummer: This one has a "forbidden number" :

Quote:
Unfortunately Skype does not support calls to all number ranges in every country. There are a select number of premium priced or geographic/country specific numbers which are forbidden and cannot be reached using SkypeOut at this time. If the number you are calling is not supported we apologize for that and suggest that you use a different method to call that number.


Too bad--the call would have been about 2 US cents/minute to an ordinary number.

@QXT

It works when calling my K7 number but I don't think it will work with numbers outside the US.
It also appends a message about the call being a demo to the end.

If somebody could manage to speak to this lad and tell him they've lost his e-mail address, we could then maybe have some fun.

I am sure there's probably a pay phone around here somewhere - I may try to get some information from him.

Bad news - I went out and got a calling card and called from a pay phone - I got the message that I have reached a number that is no longer in service.

So, I just called it on my personal cell phone - same thing - the phone is no longer in service.

He probably caught wind of it from the papers and had the number disconnected.
