Investigation report for 03333381061

6 Months Ago

The inclusion of a 0333 prefix in the number categorizes it as a non-geographical number (NGN), often known for its lack of association with any specific region. NGNs distinctly signify a landline rather than a mobile line. Businesses commonly opt for numbers with the 0333 prefix due to their cost-effective nature, particularly in handling calls on a broad scale. These numbers, devoid of regional ties, enable companies to connect with customers throughout the entire UK, establishing them as a preferred option for extensive customer communication.

Which company uses 0333 338 1061?

We dialled the number as part of our investigation, and it is associated with the Three network providers. Three's network currently extends its coverage to 99% of the UK population, handling 29% of the country's mobile data traffic. The introduction of 5G in August 2019 resulted in Three being acknowledged by Ookla for having the fastest 5G network.

About the owner of 0333 338 1061

The Three mobile service was introduced in the UK on March 3, 2003, with handsets becoming available later that same year. Three marked a significant milestone as the UK's inaugural commercial video mobile (3G) network.

By December 9, 2004, Three became the first network to meet the regulatory requirement of attaining 80% population coverage in the UK.

Three's initial retail stores, named 3Store, were inaugurated concurrently with the network's launch on Oxford Street and Kensington High Street in London, as well as at the Birmingham Mailbox. Handsets, devices, and contracts were also sold through independent and online retailers. In 2005, Three expanded its presence, establishing stores in larger shopping centres across the UK. Notably, on October 24, 2006, Three announced the acquisition of 95 high-street shops from O2 and The Link.

The introduction of SeeMeTV allowed Three customers to submit their video content for other subscribers to watch, with a micropayment system in place for viewing. In 2010, Three became the fourth UK network to launch the iPhone 4.

In July 2014, the 3 inTouch app was introduced, enabling customers to make calls through Wi-Fi connections. Three customers gained access to the Virgin Wi-Fi network at over 130 London Underground stations.

On March 24, 2015, Three's parent company, Hutchison Whampoa, declared its intention to acquire O2's UK operations for £10.25 billion. However, the EU Commission blocked the deal on May 11, 2016, citing concerns about its impact on competition in the UK market.

In November 2016, a data breach at Three resulted in arrests, with fraudsters gaining access to personal data and stealing phones. In early 2020, CEO Dave Dyson resigned after nine years, and Robert Finnegan, CEO of Three Ireland, assumed leadership of both companies.

Three became the primary shirt sponsor of Premier League club Chelsea in the 2020–21 season but terminated the sponsorship on March 10, 2022. On June 14, 2023, it was announced that Vodafone UK and Three UK would merge, pending regulatory approval, to create the largest mobile network in Britain, with Vodafone owning 51% and CK Hutchison Holdings owning 49%. The merger is anticipated to conclude by the end of 2024, forming a group with a combined 27 million mobile customers.

What to do when you receive a call from 0333 338 1061?

Recipients report issues with the number 03333381061, where calls are made but no proper connection is established, or voicemails are typically silent. This may result from automated marketing calls by Three attempting to establish a connection, but when the call diverts to voicemail, the connection does not get activated, leaving a blank voicemail. Receiving such voicemails might raise concerns, and the number could be mistaken for spoofing.

Spoofing occurs when a caller manipulates the caller ID to resemble official numbers listed on an organization's website. If you suspect this is happening with a call from 03333381061, which seems to be a Three number but with an altered caller ID, it is recommended to report it. Contact the police through the non-emergency number 101 or use 999 for immediate attention. Alternatively, you can reach out to Action Fraud at 0300 123 2040 or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk  to report fraudulent activity.

It was a scam caller. It called me yesterday, and no one spoke on the other side of the call and hung up immediately after I attended the call. It seemed like someone called me just to know if my number was active. They are not THREE because after blocking the number, they tried to call again. It is a bot.

They claimed they were from three, but the number was Cook Fely. If I told him I wasn't sure if he was from 3 he replied that they would text me which did show up and appears to be true. For a 3 salesperson, he was not aware of which phone I had as well as the terms of my contract and the length of time I've been with them for. I also inquired about the number he believed he called from and it was 0800. It's a dangerous, sophisticated fraud and currently blocked.
