    What is this number?

    The "mobile"looking number beginning 0703 is a premium line number........the other number in this Ad does not exist.

    this was posted on a freeads. website.....probably all part of the Scam.

    So funsters beware of numbers beginning 070

    That none existent number shown is in the Walsall area,and I had to look twice as it was very close to our old phone number.I would be amazed if anyone in that area would perpetrate a scam,as everyone in those parts are righteous,upright citizens with impeccable morals.

    Yes, it may in fact be a wallsall no but i've just called it on my payg mobile and i get a message telling me i've dialled an incorrect no

    If you click on the blue " what's this number" you can see the whole advert.

    Are you sure 0703 is a premium number? Wiki says it is in the Ukraine, but not here in the UK.

    I had never heard of this, but did a little research and yes, 0703 is indeed a premium rate number, charging around 50p per minute! I believe I now have to say "mobile networks may vary" :D
