I’ve been contacted by Eco boilers who install new energy efficient Zanussi boilers with no up front costs. Paid for on a monthly maintenance plan. I’m not sure how they got my details but I did click on a link with Martin Lewis’s picture on. So I’m not sure if it’s a genuine deal or a clever form of cold calling-do you?!?

    You can be sure it won't have anything to do with this site or Martin Lewis, which leaves the other alternative. People who scam you through advertising aren't the best to employ!

    So far as I know, there is no boiler scrappage scheme at present, but:


    you could be entitled to help with the cost of a new boiler:
    • Energy Companies Obligation (ECO): If you are on a low income, this government scheme lets you upgrade your old boiler for free. Your energy supplier may be able to tell you if you are eligible, or you can go to the Ofgem website for more information.

    I got called by (possibly) the same outfit - I'm ex-directory, TPS registered, and do not give out my details. It was a cold call, and the number reported to the ICO.

    Like the windows scrappage scheme, it is nothing more than a sales pitch to sell overpriced installs to unsuspecting or gullible mugs.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    I'm pretty sure MSE Martin takes a strong & robust stance against any site that possibly compromises his integrety in any way.

    I suggest you email this site, or send a tweet to Martin directly (@MARTINSLEWIS) with a link to the site involved. I feel sure Martin will have his lawyers onto it immediately if there is any suggestion of him endorsing the product or similar (including without good cause or approval, having his image on the site), unless he has.

    Edit: then again ...
