Calls to +44844 in the UK are charged to called at upto 5ppm and may 
result in an outpayment to the number holder (in the order of 2-3ppm 
[GBP 0.002 - GBP 0.003]).

What sort of calls are you seeing, long duration? What are you charging 
the callers for these calls? Can you give an example of the next three 
digits of the numbers (which will confirm the UK operator and charge).
