Do not give out any personal details to this number because it is clearly a scam.

I started receiving repeated silent calls again from 0800 1070662. The recorded message still claims they are the AA & to leave full details to be removed from further marketing calls.

I never received any answer from my 29/1 email complaint to the AA so I rang Customer Services on 08705 33 22 11 to complain. Apparently it's *NOT* an AA number; *NOT* their recording (all theirs are voiced by the same person) & they don't call using machines, only people, who leave messages rather than hang up like this. They did not have any phone contact details for me or my partner on their database so it couldn't be anything to do with them.

They are investigating but ring & give details to the AA & OFCOM if you receive any calls from this number. The more people who complain, the more likely OFCOM will take action.

I've been receiving repeated silent calls from this number. If I call back the number I receive a recorded message claiming they are the AA & to leave full details to be removed from further marketing calls. I am a non-driver & registered with the TPS so it's unlikely this is true! I have reported the incidents to OFCOM on https://www.ofcom.org.uk/complain/landline/silent/?itemid=284912 & the AA on https://www.theaa.com/common/contact_us_form.jsp (telling them I've already reported them to OFCOM for making nuisance calls in breach of telephone regulations if it's not an imposter).

Although OFCOM say they cannot investigate individual complaints, they say they monitor complaints logged against numbers so I suggest every time someone receives a nuisance/silent call they log it there to force some action. Good luck.
