    Hello, I have received a call from international number (+8881233410) about taking admission to abroad. May I know from which country they called me and how can I call back.


    There is no country code starting with 88 or 888 so this doesn’t look like a complete international phone number therefore it’s virtually impossible to tell where they’re calling you from. Why you are unable to see the complete number I don’t know – they might have a way of hiding it so you can’t call back.


    Hi All,
    Just had an international call using the code 000 208,I thought that 000 was used to dial out of the UK not in.
    Can anyone help?


    Hello Katie.
    Actually, to dial out of the UK one should use 00 not 000.
    How many digits do you have after 208? Maybe this isn’t even an international number calling you.
