Just had a call asking for Mrs Richardson?..sorry wrong number, oh no i meant Mrs richardson..no no one of that name, wrong number..oh well can i ask who provides your broad band at moment..why are you asking me this, you ahve called to speak to someone else?..well we can offer you a great deal..no im not interested..<stupid girl on other end stifles giggles!?> can i ask why you're not interested?..yes because you are ringing people whose numbers you have somehow come across, pretending to ned to speak to some made up name to try and cold call people and get them to take up your offers.. <girls still stifling giggles as she speaks> i put phone down..arrrrghhhh..so HOW are they getting ex d numbers? i only EVER give out my mobile if people need it!???

Tried 1471, caller withheld number..my phone WONT accept withheld numbers UNLESS its a switchboard, so wasnt some kid calling from phone box!?

I've been having a lot of this lately and the press 9 to claim you cruise etc..

I am Ex D and I have been removed from calling lists etc apparently though they can still get your number/call you if not in the UK

am also ex d ...they are clearly either randomly dialling or getting info on numbers from data sold on from those who legitimately hold your data
