Orange
Seems to be orange calling about 'pay as you go mobiles.' Have had them ring multiple times in the past few weeks. Ignoring, telling them to stop phoning etc does not seem to work....

Orange?
My husband received missed calls twice today from this number but when phoned it back it was a business called FON Connect or something similar. It gave opening hours but was shut!

Is certainly NOT Orange
It's some cold calling scammers who want to "upgrade" you on to a contract. They believe you have an Orange PAYG phone - so they phone to "talk to you about your Orange phone" to make you think it's Orange.

Definitely not Orange - if they phone you it starts with 07 - more than likely a scam, but unless you have a smartphone you can't block the calls & neither can Orange.
Pattern is same as previous writers, no message left, & nothing said when you pick up, 2 or 3 calls a day at the moment.
Bloody annoying, I sent a text to the number saying I'd reported them.

Living here in France...
...there's a cost to pay for receiving calls on our UK mobile, as well as the inconvenience of picking up to find there's no-one there.

Called and left a message on my answer phone, which I have to pay no choice buy to pay to listen to later on, then to find out they didnt speak and just left a blank message! I think it has something to do with Orange but not sure.

This number has tried calling 3 times in the past 2 days, yet has left no message, does anybody know who this is and why not leave a message if it so important.

Called me twice, both times I rejected it and they left a blank answer phone number which I had to pay to access. Whoever it is, I've just blocked them so hopefully they wont be able to ring me anymore

Azlan Direct 01613128347
These scammers rang up and said they were Orange. The man said I had been a wonderful customer and they had a great deal, monthly contract. I went for it, I thought it was Orange. I rang back the next day to cancel the contract, Answerphone, AZLAN DIRECT, were not here today, Would you hear that from Orange? NO!!! I put the company name into Google, not there. I gave my account details unfortunately. If you get any number you dont recognise, put it into Google, there you will find out, if a scam.

Do not give them any information, just hang up. If you go onto the Orange website, you can see the telephone numbers who are authorised partners. I rang Orange, this company nothing to do with them. I have informed Trading Standards.

Scam
Had a call from 0161 312 8347, answered it and they hung up. If you are on PAYG on any phone please check your credit as this number stole £5 from my credit

Double scam
Received two phone-calls on my landline last week from 1613004238, plus a "missed call" on my Orange mobile. The same thing has happened again today, with my mobile ringing from the same number as above, whilst I was actually answering my landline to the same 1613004238!!!

So far, I have managed not to reply (I normally keep my mobile for emergencies and texting), but am curious as to how they (the scammers) have acquired my mobile number (since the two phones are in different names).

Curiously enough, I have not had any of my usual, irritatingly regular, Indian phone-calls just lately!!! I wonder way?!!!

Started two days ago and have had 3 missed calls from them already. They don't leave any messages or voicemail. I want it to stop as my PAYG phone is for emergencies.

answer this 0161 number at your peril,
answer this number and it eats your credit on payasugo numbers, also to get your numbers it must be linked inside ORANGE because on reading others it seems to be linked to Orange customers, in my mind someone inside Orange is giving out payougo numbers to these so and so's,

I have had 6 calls and voicemail messages in the last week, 5 while I was in Spain. As I only use my phone for emergencies these calls have caused me considerable worry. I agree that somebody within Orange has given out these numbers so I will change network once my credit is used up.

?
didn't answer at the time but no message was left, I'm researching this for my dad by the way as he couldn't think whose number it was. He didn't think the internet would help. But after some pretty extensive research which turned up nothing I think I have to agree with the above about it being a scam under the pseudonym of orange. )-:

I just got called by them and answered. he was he was from orange and gave me all these contract offers and I was almost swept up by it (I only just moved to England so I almost believed him). Especially as I spend a lot of money on pay as you go. I was ready to give over my details but remembered that friends have said that people have been calling them pretending to be their credit card companies asking for details. So I goggled him whilst on the phone and found out it was a scam and told him never to call back.

I had a text to let me know that I had a missed call by this number 01613128347 after a few seconds I Google this 01613 and found out that it is the area code for Manchester and I typed the whole number into Google and found this website. I'm glad that I had Google it before ringing back to see who it was. Thanks for stating that they where scammers.

Mark as SCAM
Just got called from this number but didn't recognize it so Googled and found this page.
I am usually reluctant to answer a call to my mobile unless I recognize it, so have now entered the number into my mobile phone directory with SCAM as the name - to warn me the next time..
It's the first dodgy call I've had for a while so I'm also going back to not even picking the phone up unless it rings more than 6 times. The previous scammers always stopped after 6 rings.

Orange? I doubt it.....
They called a few days ago, saying they were Orange and telling me I could get unlimited texts etc for only £1 more than I was paying now on PAYG.

Thing is, they didn't know how much I spent per month or whether I was on a particular tariff. You'd think Orange would know!

They asked for my bank account sort-code and number.....saying that it wasn't enough information to take any money. When I refused they spouted something about Children in Need also asking for the same information but not taking any money.

Then they asked if it would help if I spoke to their manager.....what difference would that have made! So I ended the call.

Avoid.

Really annoying pests
I have been receiving calls from these jokers for the past few weeks. I am called during work hours only if there is an emergency - given that my father has been poorly it is really annoying and then they hang up.

I wondered why my minutes had been used up so quickly recently but reading the messages already posted I can see why. Thanks for the tip - I have now put the number into my contacts with the name: SCAM do not pick up

Save this number as a SCAM
Me and my sister have both been getting calls from this number my sister picked up twice because she thought it might have been something important. I decided to search the number and found out what it was currently I'm getting one call per day and by some of these accounts on here I'm actually lucky. Thankfully my sister did not give any details over and hung up on them both times.
