is there anything that can be done about them ?

im getting 2-3 calls a day, from companies who are claiming to be 3 (the network im with) they are quite blatantly not and every time i ask for a contact name and details they say "john smith, London"

Ive just complained to the 3 coz i think its out of order they give my number to 3rd party companies. - they have been asking me for all sorts of details.

3 probably didnt give out your number,scamsters probably purchased a phone from 3 the same time as you and as most numbers are assigned in order they phone telephone numbers with similar numbers as they know they were all shipped at a similar time and can pretend to be from 3.

The same problem exists from Orange. I left them about 5 years ago with 2 contracts. One is now with O2, the otherwith T-Moble. Both still get calls every now and then telling me its my lucky day and that I am due a new phone and contract with Orange!!!

Sadly, this won't stop O/S and scammers

ive also been with 3 for about 4 years and id say about every six months i get a ton of calls telling me that they're from 3,as soon as i say i've got 6 months left on contract they just hang up,ive been told before 3 has nothing to do with it,these callers just make up numbers at random.
