T mobile I am told
There must be a way to definativly check if this number is XXXXX diversion to another country.
I am well aware of all the Nigerian scams, who can give that information?
Since its not a privacy issue, I'm not asking for caller identity, or address, simply is it diverting overseas.
Hi I am sorry that you feel my service was bad meaning that I get no credit for my time. ( and is not necessary for a refund)
I fully appreciate your frustration but I am afraid that what you are asking for is not possible unless you wish to pay substantial sums for it to be done by someone who has ways to access such information Claire
Claire, I know its not your rules, but what amazes me, every day the media, or the police, are pleading with the public not to get caught up in phone scams, especially, when they appear to eminate from Nigerian scammers.
There seems no way to ensure that the person you are talking to, is not a scammer, in other words the law protects these people, I just for the life of me can't understand why there isn't a regulatory body that you can approach, to protect your self, no wonder so many people get caught, and I'm still not sure about this one.
