It looks like the number is incorrect perhaps it should be 0044 122 581 0931. Is it in Bath?

0041 is the code for swiss, check the number again as it should only have 1-0 in front of the number if in the UK.

Then of course you drop the 0 and add 0044 in its place.

its not that, its because I didnt realise it was a swiss fax no at first, then got to find somewhere to fax it, that may be harder im hoping the newsagents in the village will have a fax machine, they seem to have everything else. watch this space. lol At first I thought it was a mistake in the no, as the postal address is portsmouth, but the fax no is swiss confusing to me yes.

Does it actually tell you that you have to send it to Switzerland. If not, the fact that it is a Swiss fax number would suggest that there is an error in the country code which as others have said should be 0044 so try dialling the number using the UK country code instead of the Swiss one and see what you get. If it is a fax machine that answers then the country code is incorrect.

Insurance office/Jestoria/photo shop are just some of the places in a village that often offer this service.

yes because I rang the company concerned, he confirmed it was a swiss fax no so thats what Im going to do, its a pain in the bum, but what happened was, I saw a payment on my bank statement for £10 and I rang barclays in england and asked what it was for, as I had never seen it before and it was a mystery to me, it turned out for over a year this company called complete saver.co.uk had taken £10 a month out of my bank, so I rang them to find out who they were and why, last year I booked a train ticked with the trainline.com in england, it turned out i must have put a tic in a box, not that I remember as Im very careful. this enabled them to do this so I kicked upmerry hell, told them I had spoken to barclays fraud dept which I did, and the sent £30 the next day to my acc and now have to send a claim form for the rest, so a lesson learned there.
