This is the Halifax and Bank of Scotland Debt collection agency. If you do not have any debts or even accounts with them like me, then call: Telephone Customer Relations on 08457 25 35 19 at Halifax and they can get your number removed. However if you do owe them money then the only way to stop the calls is to pay them back.

It's Vanquis Bank (part of HBOS), what they like to do is call you several times a day and hang up when you answer, only after about a week of this do they then decide to speak to you

They call to say they are from the Halifax and ask for details. I do not bank with the Halifax. They rang my mobile but asked for my step son dad I asked how they got my number they said this is what we have on the account. Rubbish I do not have a Halifax account. I contacted the Halifax and they have said this is a fraudulent number. Never give any info over the phone always say YOU will pop into your local branch.

Total invasion of calls from 087-085-03492. University daughter has account with Halifax. Repeatedly telling them that my daughter DOES NOT live at home!! Usually nobody on line, auto hang up. Disgusting, abusive and bullying tactics from this organisation, that makes majority of profit from customers in debt.
Very angry

Asking for Michael, we have told them repeatedly no-one here of that name, please can they take our number off their system, always friendly response, "I am sorry for that", "please leave it with me", one even got me to check my address with him (I only said the first line) and he apologised saying it was the wrong address!
One time I asked for their supervisor, was told there isn't one available.
They call 2-3 times a day for the past 7 days, even early on a weekend.
What's the point of this call?!

I don't recognise the number so I didn't answer. I have no products with Halifax. They just tried to call me at 1pm on a SUNDAY! Do these people have no concience?
Cliff
 Oct 28th, 2007
Say Hello, confirm name & then hang up. Obviously a con to get the user to return the call, thus gaining them money via their 0870 No!

I keep getting calls from 087-085-03492. They say 1/2 word (i.e hello) then they hang up. Very annoying. They keep ringing and keep hanging up. when you try to call back you get an automated message NOT telling you the company but that they called. This must be illegal.

I've had one missed call from this number as my phone was on silent and randomly decided to type the number into google. I have no idea who it is but I see that many people are having unneccesary calls from them???

work for a retail store and its tieing up our main phone line uptio 10 times a day. I've managed to get hold of them once and tell them to remove us but they have yet to comply to our rights under the data protection act!!!!
Ensure that if you speak to them you tell them that as a consumer you can request that no automated means of communication take place, if they then "auto-call" you they are indeed breaching your right as per the data protection act. They tend to act swiftly if you push this and threatain to take it to the complaints commision.

One of our representatives tried to contact you earlier. We will try another time.

100's of times. 8am to 8pm. Complained to all who'd listen.. still getting the calls, always silent when answered. Absolute disgrace.

Same story here - up to 5 calls a day on mobile asking for same weird name, told them at least 40 times that it is a wrong no. Also called HBOS complaints on 08457 25 35 19 (twice so far), which stopped it for few days but now back in full swing again.

Hung up on once answered. Return call to a recorded message: Thankyou for calling, one of our reps....... Same as others! on average about 15 calls a day for the past week, also being plagued with no number calls with same outcome. Do they have another contact number or address so i can piss them off too & see how they like it??

It is infact HBOS (Halifax and the Bank of Scotland)
I've had several missed calls from them and also calls where they put the phone down on you, very strange. Anyways problem solved and if you owe them money like me, better off giving them a call, and try not to hang up on them like they do.
