So called Rogue Dialers are in the news again.

BBC NEWS | Technology | Call for action on internet scam

The problem for the telecoms industry is that as well as using Premum Rate numbers based in the UK, which fall under ICSTIS, the virus also use international numbers. The scam here is that the overseas country benefits every time someone calls the overseas number.

For obvious reasons, it is very difficult for BT, or an other network operator, to block international calls.

My In-Laws had to pay over 70 after a visit by a young relative. And yes, they had to pay VAT to add insult to injury!
