I am getting at least 3 calls day and they hang up when I pick up the telephone, or the ansafone clicks in. 1471 gave me the number and in desperation I returned the call to be told it is Stella UK ringing on behalf of a client.

(P.S. to my earlier posts): After considering my next move, I have reported the incidents involving 080-001-91773 to Watchdog as I said I might. I am hoping that they will now investigate the matter further and put a stop to the nuisance calls for us.

I am seriously thinking about telling Watchdog (BBC1) and see if they can name and shame the company committing this malpractice after receiving my latest call 25/11/2008 at 1.45pm. With all the references to this number on the Blog sites and the internet, it's time someone stood up and took action against these pests.

I have been receiving phone calls from this number for ages now. At first they were three times a day, now once a day (twice at most). I let my answerphone take the calls and more-often-than-not they hang up half way through the recorded message. However, once or twice they have played a recorded message of their own with a quiz promotion and Caribbean holiday prizes as an incentive to take the call. THEY CAN STUFF THEIR PROMOTIONS - FAKE OR NOT! They should be reported to Trades organistion or whatever they are for aggressive and illegal selling tactics. Maybe we should contact Watchdog (BBC1)?

Got a call from this number at 9pm. We have a 7 week old child, so the last thing we need is cold calls at night time. Surely there are guidelines to when they can call...

I have had repeated hangup calls from this number, however today they spoke to me and claimed to be from MBNA, told me I had a certain type of credit card with them plus what my credit limit was, then started to ask the security questions. At this point I said I don't give that information over the phone but if they wished to write to me then I would be pleased to answer. They then politely hungup. I then phoned customer services at MBNA UK and told them about this and that I was not happy about another company ie: Excel Contact Centres in Irvine Ayreshire having my account details, they put me through to their security dept and they confirmed that they use Excel as a telemarketing arm. However they did offer to stop the calls to my number and were very polite and helpful, they have also stopped my card and are sending me a new one this week. Always check out fully anyone asking for credit card details over the phone. In this case it came to a successful conclusion.
