From 01818894556

 

Today 21 June 2016

 

Time. 11:13

 

A rather pathetic attempt, the accent was so thick, I thought they were calling from Warrington.

 

I replied in German....completely floored them.

 

Regards to all...

Hi Brunel,

 

Thanks for the information. Just to confirm, did they say they were calling from TalkTalk? Did they say why they were calling? Did they have any personal information such as your name and address?

Just said I am calling from TalkTalk.

 

After my brief reply, I disconnected.

 

Just had another one 7 mins ago, same No.  calling from TT

 

 

ANOTHER CALL.  16:19    Same No.      This time he read out my correct account No.    and he mentioned a direct debit.

 

How secure are these accounts. where are the scammers continually obtaining these details from?

 

There was a continual background noise, very similar to a call centre. 

 

EDIT: I now find it disconcerting that the so called scammers now have access to my correct tel. No. They are not just dialing random.

 

Is it possible for my account No. to be changed?

Yesterday I enabled last No. barring on MY Account.

 

Today the "tick" has been disabled?

 

I have re- enabled it.

They give you a massive clue just by the number London hasn't used 0181 since 1999 as there area code. There code is 020 now. If they are trying to trick people you would think they would do some research and not use a code that's resting in peace. Guess these people lack brains especially when picking there spoofed number. One more thing every genuine call from talktalk I ever had originated from a Edinburgh phone number not a London one.

AGAIN:   01818894556   10:54

 

How long before last No. barring comes into effect?

 

This is now disturbing my entitlement to "quiet enjoyment"

 

 

AGAIN 11:43   same No. as previous.

 

This is seriously disturbing my peace & quiet.

I have now ticked once again, it appears not to be "sticking"

 

Log back in... tick gone....not a good experience.

Please read what I said.    Last No. barring is not sticking, it is not active  it will not enable..

 

Can you assist?

 

 

Another call today, 14:36   

 

I am now becoming rather annoyed.

 

My Tel No. is now out in the wild along with my account No.
