    BT rep maybe? Who is 08005875290 ? 18th Sep 13 at 1:28 AM
    As the title. Who are 0800 587 5290 ??

    Had several calls at all hours. Answerphone got it 1st message about calling an 0844 number and going to bt.com/smstext to disable text services.

    I have been on the TPS for a long time and also disabled my SMS service on my line.
    I double checked and called the automated BT number and it says SMS messages are disabled on this number. So its active

    As i googled the number the phone rang with an indian guy who didnt have a clue why he phoned me.
    Asked him who he was calling who did he want to speak to and he err'd and tried to think of a name. H....eerrr...

    Bought some new phones that block withheld and unknown numbers as well as international.
    So hopefully thats a load of the spam/scam calls stopped dead.

    Can the BT rep confirm is this is a BT number? And for some reason its bypassing my SMS block.

    I received a call from this number also it leaves an SMS message, very garbled and unintelligible. I worked out from some of the numbers I could hear that it is from Hermes re a Boots.com delivery due today. Hope that helps everyone wondering who the call is from.

    I also had a call just now from 0800-5875290 suggesting I have an SMS message waiting on 084...........etc., so 'Press 1 to listen .. etc'. I just put the phone down; there are enough scams out there to bankrupt us all.

    But, wait a minute, I now hear folks saying it is from BT, but I am not a BT customer !

    What's going on ?
