same phone number

I have been on Plusnet now for 3 months with no problems, but recently I have been receiving calls for a local church near me.

I have checked online and the church does seem to have the same telephone number as myself. I keep getting phones calls asking me about church services.

what can I do?

Re: same phone number

How long have you had your phone number? It is physically impossible for two lines to have the same identification.

Re: same phone number

@TigerTiger09 

Have you received calls which were intended for you and not the god squad?

i.e. is your number actually what you think it is?

If you're not 100% sure, dial 17070 and listen to the number announced to you.

 

Edit: as @jab1 mentioned above, how long  you've had your number could be relevant as it may have just been released from its previous 'owner'.

Re: same phone number

I had something similar - I was allocated a phone number when I moved in here, the number turned out to be the old fax number of a local bussines.
Unfortunately they still used old invoices showing the fax number. This became a problem when a debt or two was called in.
Several phone calls later stern words were passed on, no phone caĺls since then 🙂
