    As been discussed before this will be a automated dialer going through thousands of consecutive numbers more than likely.

    Thanks for the info. Just got a missed call from this number on my mobile. I've added it to the blacklist, so I'll never be disturbed by them again...

    I have a brand new phone number that only two people have

    Yet from the day I got it I have been receiving calls about reclaiming after an accident

    I have registered with TPS and made a complaint to silentgard.com

    Does anyone know who this is ?
    I am getting calls every day and really want to get removed pronto

    As said above the http://whocallsme.com/ site is great for checking such things.

    Sadly once you get a number that is on certain lists the TPS and CTPS are useless. When we moved offices recently we were given a number from BT which was on many such lists and despite signing up for the CTPS we still receive about ten marketing or spam calls a week asking for the phones previous owner.

    When you buy a new phone and are supplied with a number it may have been used by someone previously. They networks will often keep the number in suspense for a while before releasing it. However this will not stop auto/random diallers and nor will it stop the newstart scam marketing companies who buy cheap lists with out of date numbers.

    The best ploy is to change your mindset when you receive these numbers. Instead of getting annoyed, get revenge by stringing them along if you are free to talk.

    Yes they should be! Sometimes, I make a note of the number and ring it back, and it's dead! How can they be anonymous like this, when they invade MY privacy?! I have also registered with the TPS, but they cannot always help. When the number is dead when you call it back and you have no company number, they can't do anything about it.

    Make a complaint to the ICO - they raided and shut down an office in Manchester who were doing a similar thing the other day.

    Absolutely sick of unsolicited calls and texts to a private number but at least the ICO are doing something about it.

    I admit it is extremely frustrating when getting calls from people like this. It seems everyone jumps on the band wagon of ppi reclaiming just to make a quick quid. Can't be bothered with companies like this. They set up quick and they close quick too - with a trail of debt behind them!!!
