I had a missed call on my home phone. Having searched the web for the above number, it cropped up in 2003 as a suspicious looking missed call on a Dutch guy's phone. If only I could read Dutch then I could follow the thread :D

Does anyone have any info as to where the call originates from?
...and then the window licker said to me...

    I just translated the text using AltaVista and it basically says "I have this number on my phone, does anyone know where it is from? I have dialled it but get no connection"

    The thread then continues with general mystery as to where the number is from and then ends without anyone knowing where it is from!

    Maybe I can add some cornflour to thicken it some more......


    My Dad lives in California......

    I have 18866.......on Telewest (with an Orchid dialler)


    My Mum has literally just called me from the States and the caller ID was........0604 550 7000!!! (Now that certainly isn't his telephone number, so it must be some sort of generic caller ID reference).

    I hasten to add that this isn't always the caller ID that comes up.

    Curiouser and curiouser......:cool:

    Someone in Canada was remarking on it too. Must be something to do with routing. My foreign mobile has had US, Bahrain and Russian IDs shown when called from my Orange phone.

    I wonder if I had answered the call, would I get a recorded announcement that I had won an all expenses paid holiday to somewhere or other...
