How To Stop Calling Expensive 0870 Numbers and start using cheaper ones
Want to improve your credit rating? Consider using a low-limit Credit Card as a strategy of monthly borrowing and repaying. It works wonders. Find out more.
Sadly many people don't know that UK telephone numbers starting with 0870, 0871, 0844 etc are a money making racket for all involved, except of course for the poor consumers.
  • 0870 numbers and the like cost the caller a premium rate and the number's owner gets paid a cut
  • For example, call your bank or credit card company to complain and there's a good chance you'll be charged!

But people are fighting back and using the services of the excellent SayNoTo0870.com website. This site simply provides the standard number to call instead of the premium rate one, for example, in London an 0207 or 0208 instead of 0870 etc
