If you read the whocallsme reports the name that keeps cropping up is a company called Leadx

They buy and sell marketing 'leads' of personal information of people who are looking for loans or insurance. They obtain many of them from the major price comparison sites on the net!!

They are also involved with accident claims. I don't know if these messages are connected to them.

here's interesting

got the same text so i called the number stated which is 01228 508170/2 and gave the guy a hard time. He advised me that they are a Debt management company and they get all their numbers from a company called Leedx and gave me their number 08448714300. I called this compnay and explained that i did not ask for this nor did i make any enquiry becuase my name was not philip! (the name on the text) she advised me people would make enquiries and put whatever name and number down and they forward it on to the people who send the texts (hope im making sense here) for them to call back. She took my number off their database so i should not be recieving these texts again!

Hope i made sense then!!
damn pests!
