  1. I’ve just seen my parents phone bill, 3 calls to 118888 9th Jan 17, one was 58 seconds, one was 4 seconds and another one, all between 12.22 and 12.23 pm, 3 x £7.09. Something not right, how can I investigate, darent call 118!

  2. What the hell!! A let somebody borrow my phone and they rang this number (long story) they were on the phone for 3 minutes and I get charged £20!!! Why on earth is it so expensive???

  3. My elderly mother has just been charged £9.10 for a 39 second call to 118888 which bears no resemblance to 59p per call plus £1.29 per minute. When I spoke to BT (my mothers provider), they just said they could do nothing about it and advised just not to use them. It is about time that the telecom providers did something about this obvious scam.

  4. I’ve just looked at my phone bill and being charged £9:09 for a 16second call I did not even make can only think my little one did but not happy what a con, phoned up sky nothing they can do

  5. I have just seen a client’s bill – call to 118,888 charged at £9.13 for 58 seconds and £13.386 for 1 minute and 54 seconds. This is considerably more than the rate quoted above. Is this explained to callers when they call? Where is the rate published? What is ofcom doing about this rip-off?
