Please just use a landline number

What is the point in businesses advertising jobs and using a privacy number (starting 0704)?

These cost up to 37.5p per minute to call from a landline, more (presumably) from a mobile.

Even the CAB, advertising for volunteers, is doing this!

Please just display the business number (landline or mobile) and email address!

Jobseekers, please beware of these numbers and try Googling for an alternative.
