Never trust a phone number
If someone gives you a phone number starting with 4470, it is a link number that connects you with anywhere in the world, but not to a real UK number. Phone numbers starting with 4470 are the most popular in the world with scammers but now there are also redirect services offering United States area codes that can be forwarded to anywhere in the world and they are rapidly growing in popularity with scammers. Because of this, more and more scammers are getting very pushy about wanting you to talk to them on the phone.

Scammers can be "anywhere in the world" they want
With the availability of redirect services and the inexpensive cost, scammers can pretty much be "anywhere in the world" they want. The way it works is they get a U.S., Canada, Australia, etc. phone number and that number is redirected to another phone number just about anywhere in the world including Nigeria, Ghana, Turkey, Morocco or anywhere.
Redirect services are one of the things if not the only thing that many scammers will actually pay for themselves as opposed to trying to scam someone into paying for them. They would rather use their scam for much bigger dollar amounts. For example, a scammer can get a phone number with a Tulsa Oklahoma area code (918) and have that number forwarded to their phone for only 5.95/month and 0.20 cents per minute to Nigeria and Ghana or only 0.06 cents per minute to South Africa.

Try not to get so wrapped up in a picture of someone that you ignore inconsistencies, flags and warning signs
