Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just wondering if any of you have recieved a call from this number regarding your army application?
    I have had several missed calls from this number and they leave no message. So i thought i will type it into google and what do you know, a lot of people have said its a scam when you call them back it charges you ridiculous amounts of money, but one guy said the goverment and charities use this service and he was joining the army and they called to ask him about his application from the above number.

  3. Missing a digit?
     
  4. Easy answer, call it back from a phone box, the most it will cost you is 20p
     
  5. yes i was thinking of doing that, can't be bothered though, i will just answer the phone next time. Oh and its 30p to use a phone box.
     
  6. Wah....
     
  7. No, this is not a wah mate.
     
  8. goto 192.com amd see if its registered with them, or simply call BT inquiry's

    "cought them at 18.26 last night

    (blisfuly unaware of their bad online call-feedback)
    i should have known they will try to contact me since i've requested an information pack, stupid :)

  11. It is a standard rate call, according to my VOIP telephone call to that number. It cost me 5p.

    The message states that "Thank you for calling us back. We are a marketing agency, appointed by charities, goverment bodies and business to undertake calls on their behalf. Please be assured that there is no urgency to our call...."

    Despite the fact that it is a legal requirement for them to identify themselves by name, this is just a cold selling operation/"market research" outfit. The person who said it cost them £10 is either on acid or certifiable. It is a Cardiff prefix, and I'm a bit amazed that some else didn't check it out with Skype or whatever.

    Nothing to worry about, move on, nothing to see here or get hysterical about.
