    It's hardly a scam! 076 is the standard prefix for non-geographic VoIP numbers. Anyone with an account with blueface.ie or other Irish VoIP provider has an 076 number. I have a couple of unused ones myself from years back. It's only the Telcos ripping you off for 35c/minute from a mobile. There's no way the caller is making money out of it.

    Cheers for that, puts my mind at rest. Never came across it before, hence the the post.
