How do these people get our numbers? 

Easy enough blocking them, but since gamstop I haven't given my number out, or at least not what I can remember!

@Elliot B I removed the attachment in your post as it contained the names of casinos that are apparently not on Gamstop, and this site does not allow those to be advertised. Hope you understand .

I’ve only ever signed up to this one. I get spam for dick enlargement, viagra and mail order brides. The fact I’ve made use of each is irrelevant

Yep, only started fairly recently but it's constant now.

Only thing I can think it could be is the casinos selling info but doesn't make sense they would do that.

Maybe YouTube, Google etc? If you register your number they would certainly know what you do online so know the relevant people to sell you details on to.......

Very revealing @Gkell727 :Mutley:

Like I said not decent ones, we've carefully studied what each individual needs and spammed them the appropriate ones, you're welcome!

Is it true your leg size divided by the square root of hitting something on danger = 1 inch ?

you can block them easily... easy way to get your number is when you use WIFI call so switch off WIFI calls on your phone

A lot of the UK networks are having huge issues with either rouge call centre agents selling massive amounts of data or having such lack lustre security on the databases that it’s easily stolen. Kind of hushed up at the moment but it won’t be long before ofcom take action. Same as pac code fraud as it’s known is on the rise. Aside from that’s it’s some sites that take your mobile number - one way round it is if you have a dual sim phone pop a PAYG sim in and use that for all but essential stuff online and only have sim 1 active the rest of the time

The simple answer is that they don't need it.

All they need are a list of the mobile phone codes used in the UK that are easily found on the internet. Then start at 000000, then 000001, 000002, etc.

And a computer does the rest.

e.g. O2 code 07106

07106 000000, 07106 000001, 07106 000002, .......... 07106 999999

 

Just like the scene in war Games when Matthew Broderick is looking for the number for a computer games company but connects to Joshua.
