Just received a call from these people (0509 2213 648). Total scam! They read out my address, said I was being refunded 4% of bank interest charges because of High Court. They asked for my credit card number, expiry, security code on the back, who my mortgage was with, and a few other questions.

Out of interest I gave them a whole load of rubbish numbers and data. Before the call ended they had clearly tried to use it as they said 'this does not work'. Description: Strong Indian accent, not the brightest callers (I was passed to another person while the first tried to use my card) in the world. Other than a surname, address and phone number, they have very little.

Beware!

received a call from someone (sounding very indian) claiming to be arranging a PPI refund. They had some outdated information about me and then tried to get me to give my debit card number (as security confirmation) by telling me the first 5 digits (standard Lloyds BIN number). At this point I refused telling them that their bit was standard for most Lloyds debit cardholders and my bit was the secure bit and they hung up.

This number has called us a few times now. Each time it seems to be an Indian/Asian guy (one time he sain his name was John) claming to be calling regarding intrest charges etc. Our latest call we recieved I could not understand who he asked for at first so I politely asked who he was wanting to speak to, his reply was to aggresively shout my mothers name. When I told him she wasn't available he then asked for my father, I told him that he was also unavailable. By this point he was getting quite annoyed & then asked me who I was, my name & how old I was. I refused to give him the info, then he requested to speak to someone else & I told him no. He then shouted something (I couldn't understand what) & put the phone down on me. I belive they are just irritating foriegn scammers!

Callers from this number repeatedly call my aunt. Ask for her by name but do not say anything else when challenged over the nature of the call. Asian accents.

it was my elderly mother who had a call from this number, but it was i who took the call, they asked to speak to my mother(by name). when i told him that she was unavailable he became quite abusive. he told me i was bloody stupid and when i questioned what he had said, he said it again. i then asked him who he thought he was talkig to, when at this point he told me to f**** off and put the phone down on me. the gent spoke with a pakistan/ indian accent

I just received a call from 050 9221 3648 from a guy with an Indian/Pakistan accent claiming to be from LloydsTSB and telling me that there had been a court order to refund bank charges. He had my bank account and sort code numbers, and quoted to me an old address which I moved from 6 years ago. When I told him it was old, he said he knew that and could I give him my new house number and postcode, which I did. After that he asked me to read out my 16 visa card number which I refused to do. He then became quite difficult and started to tell me that he needed me to confirm that to confirm my identity and said he had it already in front of him, and the number on the back of the card, so there was no reason to withhold it. I becamse very suspicious at this point and told him I would not give him the number and he eventually agreed to end the call.

I ten rang LloydsTSB who confirmed to me that the number was not one of theirs and that if they had rung they would have given me a number to call back if I was unhappy with what I was being asked to provide. LloydsTSB also confirmed to me that none of their staff would have access to the number on the back of the card and so would never ask for it to be given for identification purposes. I reported the number to them.

This guy appears from what I've read on here to be a scammer.

My son has been getting calls from this number and 013-238-88121 they both seem to be the same people. We have had at least 3 calls a day for more than 3weeks now, they even called us on Christmas Day! They claim to be from his bank, Barclays, claiming to be a call centre in Eastbourne (which fits with the dialling code 01323). They have Indian or Pakistani accents but speak English with more of an American accent (if that makes sense?). They have a number of personal details and ask to confirm his credit card number, giving the first 4 figures and wanting the rest confirmed. They then ask for the 3 digit security code from the back of the card. They are very plausible and I can see that people could easily be fooled into giving the requested information. We have spoken to the Police and to Barclays Bank. The scam is being investigated but any further information that you have should be reported to the police. The problem is they are using an internet generated phone number, that's why you cant call them back. Because the number does not exist all of the blocking services won't work, making efforts to stop them pointless. The only answer seems to be to change phone numbers, and wait for the next scam caller! We think that they have got my sons details from his Face Book profile, or as a result of an on-line purchase he made in December.
