Voicemail

I am getting frequent messages saying I have a new voice mail message from my own mobile phone number.
Why is this? The last one was 23 minutes ago. I don't dial voice mail, no point.
Any suggestions and help would be welcome please.
Thank you, Susan J.

Re: Voicemail

@susanj Try calling your phone from another, leave a voicemail then call the voicemail from the phone & delete it then it should be ok

Re: Voicemail

@susanj dial 901 to listen to the voicemail then delete it. If you don't want to use voicemail, dial 1760 to turn it off.

Re: Voicemail

Thank you for this suggestion. However when I dial voice mail it says the number is engaged, as it would be as I'm ringing from my own phone, then leaves a message. It may be a scam, information from a web site ? from the U.S.A.

Thank you, Susanj.

Re: Voicemail

@susanj you just dial 901 from your O2 phone for voicemail. 

It cannot be engaged.....

Re: Voicemail

Thank you for the suggestions. I may have been confusing in my post.

I am getting messages telling me to ring my own phone number. They vary in the nuber of minutes and hours it was sent and keeps being replaced. 
On a ? U.S.A site there is a scam about this,

Re: Voicemail

Just block the number so they can't message you.
You can also report it to a number of areas by following the advice here https://www.o2.co.uk/help/safety-and-security/unwanted-calls-and-messages

Re: Voicemail message from own phone

Hello,

Thank you for this. I blocked my number this morning but I have a new message I hour ago saying 'new voice mail dial 'xxxxxxxxx' (my own phone number). The times change daily going up to 9 hours then a new message arrives frequently from minutes to hours, presumably  from when it was sent.
Who do I report it to? I have already been on O2 chatline and their solution hasn't worked.

Susanj.
