I have just had a worrying unsolicited phone call. Worrying because as soon as I answered an automated message came on stating "Are you worried about debt etc... and then went on to ask you to press 5 to speak to someone who can write off 75% of your debt". I am concerned because if any of my children picked up the phone they would have heard the message and it would have upset them needlessly.
I dialed 1471, and the number give was 084-477-39922. On cacalling this number I was again put onto an automated system.. The man identified himself as Tom Reynolds of the Consumer Saving Panel, and asked for answers to a survey, which would give me a £50 voucher of something.. but the questions I was asked to answer were my full name, address, date of birth etc.
I did not give any details !
