Thread: Retrieve Private Number

    Default Retrieve Private Number

    Hi all, i received a call from a private number; Would like to do a call back. Which would be the right agency (singtel??) to go to for me to get the number - if even possible.
    I'm an M1 customer.

    Thanks in advance!

    there is no way you could call back to a private line. the caller had paid a premium to stay confidential

    If I get miss call from a private number, I don't bother to return call, since they don't want to reveal who they are, than so be it.

    I don't even answer the call from a "private number", if u so scare people to know who u are, then keep it to yourself.....

    Actually, I hate private numbers. Worse, I miss the call and don't know who is the caller.
    It's VERY IRRITATING!!

    Possible sources of private numbers:
    1. Telcos - Singtel, M1, Starhub
    2. HSBC Bank
    3. Mindef
    4. Some property agents
    5. Overseas calls
    6.

    I think it is really silly to have private number. The other day I had 3 missed calls from private number. Subsequently the person called again. This time I picked up the call and the person said he was from Singtel. I said wow about time you guys called I have been expecting your call for 1 week. He said sir, we tried calling you today but no reply. I said I wouldn't know cos your number shows as private. As far as I am concern, this is the first time you are calling me!
    So moral of the story private numbers are a complete waste of time!!!
