Hylander Posted October 1, 2014 Share Posted October 1, 2014 I have just been reading about a lady who seached the internet for the DWP telephone number and up came 0905 815 0100. It turns out that this number is part of a scam. Dont ever use 0905 numbers. The scam is this, you dial the premium rate number and the call is then redirected to a genuine DWP number. The caller is unaware that they are being scammed until the bill comes in. 0905 numbers can cost up to £1.53 per minute. The DWP has worked with Ofcom the regulator to close fake lines but they keep appearing. I personally will not dial mobile numbers or these strange 08 09 or any 0 numbers from a landline. If I cannot get a proper landline number , I email or write a letter. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
