In reply to:
this guy just tried it with me aswell, cheeky swine! cant write propper english either!! idiot gave me his mobile no without me giving him anything!! west african for sure, well here it is, give it ago!! +447031841192
Thats a UK number that looks like a mobile/cell number, but as its +44(0)70, its actually a premium rate number. There are scams here were you get a call from these 070 numbers, and hang up quickly so you get a missed call. Because it looks like a mobile number people ring them back, and cost them 50p/min to phone.
edit: goofed with the prices. But still 070 numbers can generate income for the owner
