Someone remind me how this works: I've just received an International 'phone call which says I've won a holiday, press 9 to claim it. What happens if I press 9?
go ahaed and press 9 you will get a large amount charged to you phone bill up to £20 per minute some thing like that
You receive a bloody expensive 'phone bill (but no holiday).
For a start, you have NOT won a holiday!
Do elaborate on the £20 a minute thing!!!! lol
I thought BT and Offcom had stopped this sort of thing.

Thanks, I knew I'd seen it somewhere before. I wonder what the purpose of the call is, then?
Yep silly myth.Think about, how can you be charged for an incoming call?How would that show up on your bill as a direct dialed call if you didn't dial it? (What would it come up as?)The only person who can charge you for a non-direct dialed called, or a reversed charged call is an operator that works for your telephone supplier.
Even so, a responding call could be a £ or more per minute, with nothing to gain?
