    So I just had a call,

    They said I paid a premium call on the 02nd August and have to collect £08.41 today or else they will cut the line.

    They also said they sent me a letter on the 14th August (which was a sunday) to confirm this. This never happened.

    I told them if I had made the premium call, this would have been covered and paid by the BT bill which my dad pays.

    The english man who was spoke in his 40s/50s said he required an payment.

    I had a similar call by before and told by someone, this could be someone who knows me (my enemy) trying to get a laugh, so when the phone call is made to my house, they wlll receive a phone call so they can listen to it.

    I believe they have a number from someone who doesn't like me, my home number can be found on a directory or even asking someone I know.

    I believe this is a situation where when the phone call is made to me, a phone call is also made to the person (my enemy) so he could listen to it on his phone and laugh in the background.So a phone call is made from the fraud guy, to me and to the person who gave the 1st guy my number. So 3 calls.
