SCAM, *** Car Spares

I recently contacted, by e mail, car spares to see if the had a mirror for my car. I received a reply which told me one was in stock, & phone this number. I was immediately put on hold. I decide to e mail them again when no one answered. I never received a reply.

To my surprise, when I checked my phone bill logged as a non included call list is this number, 07034713853. Billed at 6 a min. What a scam.

I Google`d the number & the first reply I got was this.......

"Be very very carefull if you use spares there phone number which they ask you to ring is a premium line thats dressed up as a mobile number which is 0703 471 3853 this is 6 a minute and they are in no hurry to answer and then ask if you can phone back in half an hour, and guess what this happens again and again".

Currently in SMG's garage:
Citroen C3 Picasso Exec 1.6 TDI
