Marketing calls

I've just received my first marketing call on my VoIP line, which is very odd.
The only people that this number is given to is those at work - it's not used for personal calls.
So I'm wondering if the numbers are publicised anywhere, or is just a random dialler?  Undecided

Hi Adie,
They're definitely not published anywhere. I can only imagine it was a random dialler.

Re: Marketing calls

It’s possible that your VOIP number used to belong to someone else and the marketing call was for them. For quite a while after I got my VOIP number I used to get calls for the local branch of the Jehovah's Witnesses !!  They seem to have stopped now though.

Possibly Bob, but it's the first one that I've had in 14 months Smiley

Re: Marketing calls

Same as you, I haven't given my number out, but I have had 3 calls over the past few months - I just let them go to answer phone and delete the messages.
One was an automatic one that seemed to work even on the answer machine when I was trying to remember how to delete it  Crazy
