The 74,000 numbers of Barclays Bank

The UK faces an epidemic of telephone scams. Fraudsters are constantly calling people up pretending to be their bank. But how can you be sure the number displayed on your screen in genuine? You can't. The telecom system is hopelessly insecure and shouldn't be trusted for anything more complicated than dialling the speaking clock.

@Edent I guess to be fair that's a dump out of their phone system which is why they've not done anything smart with regexps. It's interesting they've got some with just one or two in different prefixes; I guess those must be lines for individual branches (which I guess there's no easy way to get hold of!) - I wonder if the list includes any 'fun' numbers of people or machines.
