Im sorry if this has already been posted.
I saw a notice at uni saying that there is a scam targeting vodafone customers. If you get a missed call on your mob which begins 0709 do not reply. If you do you will be charged £50/min. Apparently it is perfectly legal. Please pass this onto anybody you know who uses vodafone.

There is currently a MOBILE PHONE SCAM whereby you receive a message saying 'Missed Call' showing the number 0709 020 3840.

The last four numbers may vary but the first four numbers are always the same.

If you call this number back, you will be charged £50 (fifty pounds)per minute!

People have complained about their phone bills but apparently this is completely legal.

So beware - DO NOT CALL back numbers beginning with 0709.
