    IMPORTANT NEWS about premium numbers

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 25 Oct 2015, 12:48 pm

    From today, the banks will be banned from making customer calls via premium numbers.

    Millions of people in the past have had to use premium rate numbers, being charged up to 41p per minute, to make customer service calls to banks and other institutions, ( especially while using a mobile phone ), but after today, calls made on 084 or 087 numbers will be charged at standard rates.

    There you go then, you heard it first from ROB !

    NOW, I would like to see all customer service call numbers from all companies dealt with in this way too.

    I will be watching for that.

    Yeah Papa, me too as I think it is outrageous to have to pay a premium call price for normal customer service calls.

    Yes, my dear, having to pay premium prices for ordinary customer service calls just adds "insult to injury" for people who are already suffering because of bad customer services.

    I always use a site called 'Say No to 0870'. It gives alternative numbers to the same destination.
