Hey all, just a heads up about a call from this number:
00 44 22 0874 5782 which may appear without the spaces as 00442208745782.
The call from UK was clearly from a scammer offering me the opportunity to make 'money on a daily basis' and trade on the financial trading markets and Trade Me.
I've blocked the number on my phone, just leaving this message here in case any one else receives scam calls. From what I've found, Vodafone can't block international numbers so I've not reported this directly to them
Stay safe out there folks.

Why can't Vodafone block these calls?
They are coming from +4422 which is not a valid UK area code.
Surely this scam is easily shut down from affecting your NZ customers.

It would certainly be good if something could be done as very annoying. Numbers I've had calls from now:
0044 22 0548 3693
0044 22 0459 0147
0044 22 0080 0407 (this the only one I've had repeat calls from I think)
0044 22 0870 7648
0044 22 0048 9980
0044 22 0604 5311
0044 22 0219 2999
0044 22 0362 6839
I've also been getting calls on my home phone where they just hang up so am assuming is similar but can't see the number.

Be interesting to see if you get more calls. For the last week I have also been getting calls from numbers starting 0044 22 but then rest of numbers vary. I've answered a couple but just silence and also suspected a scam. One did leave a message tonight, I think they though I had answered and started talking about my interest in making money. 0044 is UK but 22 doesn't even appear to be a valid area code for UK.
Apparently there is an app where you can block the first part of a number so the 0044 22 because the numbers after that appear to be random. Need to find it as these calls are getting annoying with their frequency.

Had one of these calls yesterday and turned it off when I heard the call center background noise.
Today another call from the same number and message left saying I missed a call sent by Vodafone yesterday. I have blocked that number but presumably they will send more from a different number.
The interesting point is that I only connected with Vodafon'e fibre cable fixed line on 22nd April. Did not take long for the scammers to find that out. Perhaps Vodafone could tell us how that happened so quickly.
