Calls from Energy Grant Provider (scam) call by the number +441172054852 - Expert Opinion

This number, 01172054852, was recognized by a tellows user as being used by a man who claimed to be offering government grants and who asked questions regarding central heating and homeownership. He was impolite after getting rejections, which made the other person hang up. Still, the caller didn't give up, calling back several times without giving any more details. The caller's emphasis on energy-related subjects coupled with their hostile and evasive manner suggested that this was probably an energy utility scam. The calls' suspicious nature was proven by the persistent pestering and the sudden call termination that occurred after additional interrogation.

    A man called my landline from this number saying about government grants, so i hung up.
    He called back, so this time my partner answered the phone. He would not tell him what he was calling about & kept asking my partner to put me on the phone. My partner refused & hung up.
    The man then proceeded to phone back 3 times. The man kept asking my partner to give the phone to me, but would not tell my partner why or what he wanted. We were both shocked that this man was verbally abusive to my partner!
    After the calls had stopped my partner tried to phone the number from his mobile, but the call would not go through. Instead there was just a message saying the number had been disconnected due to suspected fraudulent activity!

    Hi Julia - Same thing - would not talk to me other than to give me a string of expletives - just another lowlife, of which there are far too many in this country! Don't let it get to you - these people are just insect (in fact- not as good as that)! Regards - Richie
