Yeah, must be from autotrader!
I advertised my vehicle on there and have only been getting these calls since then.
I even had someone leave a message asking me to call back, but they did not say where they were calling from or any details.
Must be a scam!

Thanks to all of you for reporting this too!

I reckon the Autotrader link is the key here. I advertised a week or two ago and then had the single ring and hang up before I could answer 15th may 17.33pm

I have had several call from this number. Every time no matter how fast I am, I cannot pick the call up. Only once briefly called back and it went to answerphone.

I also have advertised a car on Autotrader and did no use the protection thing for the telephone.

Rang once then hung up, I imagine if you call back you will be charged a huge premium.
