Charged for calls I never made

Hi,

 

I am being charged for premium rate calls to a number 08706091830 that I never made. On my bills calls to this number appear several times during the day and night every single day. I do not believe I have subscribed to any such service. 

 

How can I stop these calls being made from my landline number? And how do I reclaim the costs charged to my account so far?

 

Any help would be highly appreciated.

 

Many thanks

It sounds like it's connected to a computer modem.

As far as I can see my phone line is only connected to ee bright box and sky box. How can I check if there is something else and why would it be making calls to a premium number?

 

Thanks

Does your phone work? Do you get a dial tone? Does it announce your correct no. when you dial 1470 17070?

  • What PC are you using?
  • Does it have a built in dial-up or Fax modem?
  • Does it have a phone dialer, e.g. C:\Windows\System32\dialer.exe
  • Do you use Fax?
  • Is it connected to the phone line?

As well as the great advice form @XRaySpeX, if it's happening every day, I'd be disconnecting the Sky box for a day and seeing if it happens to rule that out as well.
