Is Wynnington Advert a Scam? Wordsearch Competition

The Wynnington Advert is very deceptive. I checked my phone bill and wondered why it was higher than usual. I was shocked to see a 3.25-minute call to 09066350615 costing £12.88 and a 1.38-minute call to 09066350615 for £6.20. I never knew just calling the number I would be charged. There was nothing that explained to me that I would be charged and allowed me to give consent to such a charge. Wynnington is using television, postal and phone provider companies to promote their competition.

I have a friend who told me he got a missed call from 09066350615. He said the phone rang once and so he called back the number but whoever answered stayed silent on the line, so he hung up. He got a bill for £13.

If you have been called by 09066350615 or similar numbers and was charged without your consent, report it to your mobile provider, they can help.

    An absolute con even though it was a free number on tv. Whatever you do, do not ever ring back an '0906' number or reply to any letters! Total con from start to finish! Don't ever respond to these people or try to delete your details, because it will cost you big time! Absolute fraudster a & scammers! Nobody ever wins!

    I entered a TV wordsearch competition where you just called a number then gave the answer. The call was totally free so I thought why not!.

    Last week I received a letter saying my entry was correct and gave me the option of entering 2 more wordsearch competition then phoning a premium rate number. Of course I ignored this. Today I received a phone call to say I am now in the final draw for the £10000 and as a thank you for entering they would be sending me 23 lottery tickets and a wordsearch book full of puzzles that could win me big money. All I had to do was pay £1.95 postage. He then asked for my bank details. When I said I was not giving this information over-the-counter phone he hung up. Total scam. Beware

    I'm not so sure if Wynnington Customer Services is a scam.

    They are registered on Company House.
