Ring ring...

Keep getting a number of calls from various places. No-one seems to want to leave a message, so they must be businesses. And a Google search doesn't appear to bring up anything. So, in an effort to track down what they are, I thought it'd be a good idea to publish them on this post. There's also a number of other sites with a wealth of information on this, including theanomaly Dealing With Nuisance Calls, bermudaviper | Annoying Cold Calls, and Snozwangler - Had a missed call or nuisance call and wonder who's number is....

0800 389 6818 rung me today, the man asked for the owner of the business, when I said 'no, can I help?' they hung up.

"From Vodafone Call Catcher: You missed 1 call from +02088618682 at 11:56 on 24-03-07."

02088618682 called me yesterday on my mobile. Didn't answer and they never left a message or tried to call back.

0192 555 5601 Carphone warehouse "non-urgent matter"

01872 243690 The Money Group just rang today. I am signed up to the Telephone Preference Service and should not really be getting these calls.

Got a call from 01872 243690 (The Money Group) Friday on my mobile, message left to call them back (bloody cheek!). Then on Sunday a similar call on my land line from 0845 055 4454 (Vodaphone mobiles). Hung up before we could answer. Whatever happened to 'Keep Sunday Special'? Search on internet for both numbers led me straight to this site, so cheers for solving the mystery!

Just got a call from 01872 243690 - they hung up when I answered, hence my decision to search the web for this number. What a pain in the ...
