i got a call the other day from a bloke who seemed to know everything about my mobile phone contract.i presumed-by the way he introduced himself-that he was from my "provider"(or whatever you call them).He even managed to get the first four digits of my visa card out of me....i'm usually very aware but I really did think he was from my phone company.Anyway,at the end of the call,he asked me for all my card details.This is when the alarm bells started ringing as I wasn't keen on giving them out over the phone.Turned out this is a company who offer better deals to people whose contracts are almost up.I told him-after he'd tried and tried to persuade me that this "offer"was only open up until the end of that day-that I wanted to talk it over with my hubbie first.Now,he was probably for real but I am a little wary.Anyone else had this?
Mobile phone companies sell your details to these people and because they make money from it, they won't stop. We've had a few calls from these kinds of companies, can't remember what they were called though.
not had this particular one, but get loads of calls about my mobile, internet, mortgage .. all sorts.. the best thing to do, is just say,; i am very happy with my current mobile/internet/mortgage provider and won;t dicsuss my financial details over the phone, thank you' and hang up
get caller ID< so if you don;t recognise the number, you don;t pick it up
