    Very - Is this a scam?

    Very - Is this a scam? 24th Feb 12 at 9:04 PM
    Out of the blue I got a letter offering 10% discount at Very. I do not have an account with Very (in fact I'd never heard of them) and I do not know how they got my address. I rang them (I used their Freephone number 0800 180000) and spent 15 minutes, at their expense!!!, trying to get them to remove me from their mailing list. They said they could only remove me if I gave my date of birth!!!

    Obviously I didn't give them my DOB, but wondered if this is some sort of scam or whether they just want DOBs so they can send more targetted junk mail in the future?

    Has anyone else had a "10 off at Very" letter?

    I hope this is the right board for this thread.
