Caller identified herself as calling from HBoS and asked me for my date of birth (for security purposes she said) as she wanted to discuss personal financial matters. I told her I would't divulge anything to as unsolicited call and that I have no accounts with them. She eventually gave me a number to call them (a genuine number). When I called I was asked for 16 digit account number which, of course I don't have. Incidentally - there was a fairly significant pause when I answered suggesting use of an autodialler.

Messages left on my answer machine start with Miss (my name)(I am a Mrs) and asks me to press any key to continue then its the end of the message. I am never going to answer this call I get them from first thing in the morning to last thing at night, think the latest was about 9pm ish.
