Default 0113 225 7041 - Does anybody know what this number is?

Hi,

Wonder if anybody can help me, this number 0113 225 7041 keeps continuing to phone me day and night, either when I'm at work or in bed, up to 20 times a day, when Ive tried calling it back it is unobtainable, managed to answer it once and no-body was on the other end. Ive blocked number withheld and anomymos caller rejection but as this has a numBer displayed I can't block it, any help whatseoevr would be greatly appreciated as its driving me MAD!!!!

You can register the number as a nuisance call at Ofcom - http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/tell-us/telecoms/privacy/

Google has it as a plant hire company in leeds, but that seems unlikely

It's a small firm and that number's their fax machine too - I wonder whether it's been incorrectly programmed with the OP's number for group dialling or whatever?
Much of the advice on residential telephony I have given over the past 9 years or so is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.
I will continue to help with Orchid programming whenever possible.

Default 01132 257041

I just had somebody call me from 01132 257041 (again). Having missed one and got a 'dead line' when returning the call.

It was guy trying to sell me mortgage services! I am guessing this could be a company that offers telemarketing services to different companies.

Does anyone know how they manage to set this up so that you can't call back; and what the point of that is. I mean, who in their right mind would deal with a company you can't even contact on the number they called from?

His opening gambit was that 'he could see I was paying over the odds for my mortgage' - which I am not. Would that personal information be covered by the Data Protection Act?

Yes I got the same thing you've recently had your mortgage taken over your being ripped off and got really agressive basically told him that if I needed financial advice I wouldnt be getting it from some random on the end of a phone. I'd speak to my own independent financial advisor to which he started trying to argue with me and I said his selling technique could use some refining and he hung up! Ha ha!

I recently had a phone call (number withheld) from one of these "mortgage" advisers who started the conversation with "I can see that you are paying over the odds..." - I replied "very interesting - THE MORTGAGE WAS PAID OFF 7 YEARS AGO!!!"
