    Missed call from Immediate Media 13th Oct 16 at 7:33 PM
    Just had a missed call from an 0845 number and called it back ( after googling it!) the message said 'you've had a call from Immediate Media. We'll call you back' did a search on the forum and they are competition promoters.
    Anyone else had a call from them?
    Hope they call back if it's a win!!

    Don't get too excited - I got one of these calls too. I answered it quite quickly, but got the recorded message saying you've been called by Immediate Media ...

    Lol, thanks, I did suspect it may be one of those calls - I had CLC leisure on the phone earlier regarding a competition is entered, wanted to offer me a generous discount at one of their properties!

    Numbers starting 070, 084, 087, 090, 091 and 098 are premium rate. In general, you are wasting both your time and your money if you call these numbers back. There are many 'missed call' scams that operate on these numbers.
