Not sure if i am posting on the right forum,but i keep getting a call from a number that i dont recognise and was wondering if it is possible to find out where it is calling from?I usually get the calls late at night or early morning but am never available to take the calls.
Any info appreciated.
Thanks

    There is a way of finding out where the call come from (sometimes). Send me the number I will tell you if it may be possible. If it is possible, it may take 1-2 hours at your computer to do it.

    Why don't you pick up the phone and ask why they're calling and where from?!

    Once you've done this, and told them not to call again, you're within your rights to pursue them.

  • ler01kjh,i have either been out or in bed when i have had the calls.Only noticed them after dialling 1471.
    The number in question is 0023 4176 94687.
    Thanks for all your replies.

    That sounds like an international number. I googled it and came up with Argentina, Cameroon and Croatia. I'm not very good with internation numbers though so don't know if I got it right. It's a strange number though.
