Incoming call from 012806877. Turned out to be a robocall – one of those pre-programmed calls that drone on and on in your ears about some special deal that will change your life. Wasn’t the first time. New strain. Like a virus. Initially, it was short numbers like 4040 and 5050. Then came the use of full length 11-digit mobile numbers like 0805ABCWXYZ. Now, standard land line format numbers like 012806877 are in on the action. The robocallers are evolving.
