    At home we keep getting annoying phone calls where someone puts the phone down as soon as you pick it up... and it's a restriced number! Does anyone else get the same? :confused:

    Yes... I can't remember what the proper name is but I think it's something to to do with businesses - some little bug in the system, a fax? SOmehting like that. Noone intended to phone you, it was automated and a complete mistake. I used to panic about them

    We've had the same caller for almost two years now still searching for someone by the name of Mr Young, unfortunately when we start complaining that there is no Mr Young at our address the caller usually puts the phone down on us or accuses us of lying. Now we just humour him. How bizzare?!

    Because it ISN'T a caller - it's some glitch in a system.
