I entered a competition for the peoples postcode lottery some time ago and had a sales call from them, probably I have forgotten to tick the no contact box. I had another call today but I couldn't talk at the time. I asked who was calling though and the bloke said he was from the peoples postcode lottery in connection with a diamond jubilee comp I had entered.

I have had a look and I can't see any I have marked. I did have problems with the thank button not being present for a while, but that was ages ago. So really I was wondering if they are likely to call every few months and get my hope up or if it's likely to be a win??

    Me too! Bloke on the other end was quite pushy and could not believe I did not want to take them on their offer of 2 for 1!

    I had the same call around the same time from a lady saying she was from the People's Postcode Lottery, after doing some googling, this comp was the one the lady who phoned me was on about. She asked if I played and I said yes but a long time ago. She then asked my postcode and I said I didn't want to give it to her and the convo kinda ended there. She wasn't overly pushy though, must have been the luck of the telesales draw.

    The number that came up from them though was +31207000264, if anyone is interested.
    Golly, I've got the newt pregnant...

    I always tick (or untick, depending) for no contact and the People's Postcode Lottery still phoned me.

    If in doubt "accidentally" leave off the last digit of your phone number. :p Most companies email you about wins anyway. :p
