      Has anyone seen this before? VOIP with UK mobile number?

      Indian lady from Bluepace called today from a UK mobile number. Line very faint. Left a voicemail and later an email too.

      The voicemail gave her mobile number to call back on omitting the leading zero. Bit of a giveaway.

      The email didn't have a phone number in the signature

      Looked up her name on Google and its unique.
      She's a recruiter for a few organisations and location is Pune, India.
      On LinkedIn it is UK (obviously).

        Yes it is what all Indian recruitment agencies use. I contracted for a company that sells those numbers. You can choose a landline number from any UK town or city or a mobile number.

          "Hi, my name is XXX from a recruitment company..."

          Think they are starting to realise we're onto them. He didn't like it when I pointed out I refuse to talk to someone unwilling to give me their company name.

          Gig in Glasgow, btw.

            They also pretend to be from UK by having western names etc - and then during interview some dude on very low quality line is calling and asking u stuff with broken English There is no way they will get you any job at all - so talking to them is just waste of time (it takes at least 30 secs to hear what they want to say , so its 30 secs u wont ever recover from being lost...)

                I try to when I can remember the agency name from the list.

                I've encounered about 1/3 of them and they never result in any sort of gig, interview, lead or otherwise.
                They just spam your phone, your email, and try to appear to be based in localities or countries that they aren't actually in.
                They're pushy, impatient, love to haggle agressively and don't want to pay anywhere close to your true worth or the going market rate.
                There are many theories on here about what they really do with the information they glean, but whatever this is it doesn't seem to be for the purpose of finding 'you' a new contract.

                  you will not go anywhere with these. You will be lucky to get an interview and if you do they will cancel and reschedule several times. Even if interview goes well with the client you will not hear back from them. Maybe its all a ruse to bring someone on tier 2 visa.

                    At a guess, data analysis of skills, contract / salary expectations so they can then advise clients to pay far below that as they can provide Indian skilled IT staff at a fraction of the cost of evil Brits...

                      Fact.

                      I actively block them on my phone and ignore all e-mails.
