    I received a call,this afternoon, from a lady saying she was calling from hyc for insurance about my credit cards!!I asked her if this is a survey or sales, she replied no.As i was busy at the time I received the call,I told her to call me back later,she refused!I requested a leaflet she denied again!Certainly, I haven t provided any of my details but the most weird thing is that she was calling me from a very noisy place! People were shouting and clapping hands, cars were passing by! I suppose the company is homeless....Be aware!!

    Janet reported number ‎+441204238003 as HYC

    10/29/13, 4:50 PM

    Missed a call on my mobile and I returned the call to find that the person I was speaking to told me about a mortgage, credit card and loan and how I was entitled to PPI claim back, as my name is on the PPI database as needing repaying. When I explained that I have never had any of the above, the story then went on to say that it must be my husband and that our name is on the data base, all this without even knowing my name ! Had I not have known that I am not entitled and given my personal details, which is what the conversation was alluding to, it is easy to see how some poor unsuspecting sole could be taken in. It is a shame that this is what society has come to and this type of work is classed as employment.

    1/23/14, 8:19 PM

    A persistent and aggressive person, blabs on about PPI and I'm owed money, I must have seen it on the news etc. I cut in and say I've never had a loan and nobody could possibly owe me money. He says you must be owed money because we wouldn't waste our time ringing you up. I say, no you're wasting my time by ringing me up. I hang up. I'd have liked to have listened for fun, but I was just leaving work and was thinking traffic is building up every second. I recognised the accent as being Mancunian. He was very fast talking and aggressive in tone. There was no point in reasoning with this person. There was music in the background like he was in a pub. Just bizarre. Don't pick up. If you are owed PPI you can claim it yourself.

    12/18/13, 4:14 PM

    Woman calls my mobile whilst I'm studying in the library and when I answer there is initially laughter in the background. Then goes on to say how I am owed PPI and lists banks paying out. After listening to the list I name my bank as Nationwide as it was the only one she didn't mention. Asks if I have a credit card and I state no. She then proceeds to ask me if I have had a loan (which I haven't). Was very persistent and persuasive. Would recommend not answering the phone

    Guy calls telling me it's about my refund for PPI. Asked him where he got my number from and he said a secure financial database. I asked which one, he said he didn't know. Heard a lot of 'clapping' in the background. Asked him to find out for me. He put me on hold for about 1 min then came back to say that he had spoken to his manager and if I gave him my email address his manager would contact me and let me know. I asked to speak to manager, was put on hold for 30secs and then told manager was in meeting. I pleasantly asked the guy if he would mind putting me on hold until manager came out of meeting as I really wanted to know which database was being used. He said no problem and put me on hold for around 20 minutes - at which time I reckon someone must have asked him about the call and ended it. From now on I've decided that I'm going to be pleasant to these callers and ask them to hold for some reason or other and keep them holding as long as possible (while I carry on doing something else) - if they want to make these calls to my number they can start paying over the odds for them. ;-)

    I also got an aggressive woman. Not that she got far with me, mind you. Is it the same woman calling everyone or do they only employ aggressive girls? Said that I had never taken out PPI and she replied 'Well that just doesn't make sense does it?!' to which I replied 'well that's my point, goodbye'

    I feel for these people, genuinely. The person at the other end of the phone is just trying to make a living after all and it sucks that they have to sit on the phone making hundreds of calls like this every day to do so. There's probably some really talented, intelligent individuals forced to do this type of work because they can't find good jobs. And hey, at least these people have a job, are working and making an effort, right? That's more than some! Its a ball ache receiving these calls for sure, but can you imagine the abuse they must get? That's a hard job for sure. I think people should really, really try not to be rude to them (unless they are rude first of course, that's a different story!). When these people do call me, as they did today, I just tend to say 'I appreciate the call but I'm not interested, thanks'. That usually does it. If they start getting arsey just say 'look I've politely said I'm not interested, but I appreciate the call, goodbye'. I think that's more than enough notice you don't want to continue the call and after that it's hang up time.

    Has that helped or have I just waffled on for 5 minutes completely aimlessly?!

    Martial-Law replied 1/24/14, 12:25 AM
    Its called "Boiler Room" sales Mattyboy. I doubt you would be so understanding if you were receiving 15+ calls a day from these companies. My family has been experiencing this harassment for over 2 yrs now :<
    We have TPS and caller ID/handling but if the calls come from an international source you're screwed! Nothing can stop them... SCUM
    FANCYTHAT replied 7/29/14, 11:13 AM
    Mattyboy, I disagree. Even when I was desperate for a job, (and believe me, I was offered these kind of "telemarketing" jobs) I said to the job agencies loud and clear, I REFUSE to ever do cold-calling and telemarketing on the basis of ethics. So I have no sympathy for people who work in these sort of jobs.

    This number is verified as a call from

    86 Deansgate
    M3 2ER

    Registered Company No. 06880392

    Clinically, they lied to me stating they would call me because they know I have taken out a loan with PPI and I am able to claim money back.

    I have never taken out any loan with PPI.

    When pointing this out after googling the number and stating they are upsetting many people I was then laughed at and told the majority of people they call are very happy to receive such calls. I then argued they are indeed upsetting the majority of people they call, I was then told he needed to end the call because I was wasting his valuable time. I said "one final question, I understand your time is valuable, but how valuable is my time ?"

    He ended the call.

    If they call my number again, I might just have some fun with them.

    Rang today, when I asked why they had called me and how they received my mobile number he just continued with PPI refund speech. Again I explained that I don't have loans or a mortgage so he then began to question me as to if I knew what PPI was as I must have signed up for it. Rude and don't take no for an answer so next time they call I am going to blow a whistle down the ear piece of my phone.

    They said I was entitled to PPI on a loan, credit card or morgage I have taken out. I then explained I haven't had any of the above and then he went on saying about how banks are the main offenders and asking me what bank I was with. I did tell him this but nothing else, in the end he gave up and said sorry for wasting your time as I repeated what I had said at the start and said I've never had a loan or anything

    They then rang back and I said I wasn't interested and they couldn't help me, and hung up.
    Then got a call from a mobile number, turned out to be the same rude woman demanding to know why I hung up as I didn't even know what the call was about, then she hung up on me.
    About 5 minutes later got a text from the woman simply saying 'rude.'

    Just called very aggressive woman who told me she was calling to help me claim back ppi. When I said I had never taken it out she said I must have. Told her I didn't want her help as it would cost. She then claimed it was free and she was helping me. I said I didn't ask for her help so why was she calling me. She then told me I was being very rude and that I was talking over her so I said tell you what then as I didn't ask you to call me and I don't want your help hang up on me. I then cut her off. NB I was not answering my own phone but someone else's so she had no idea who she was talking to.

    Let them ramble on for a bit; apparently I 'could' be owed thousands in PPI claims, which they would chase for me for 'only' 30% of it. For 'reassurance' they gave me a different callback number to the one that had rung on my mobile, then asked if I would speak to my bank and request PPI information on their behalf while they kept me on hold. HYC woman instructed me that if bank asked 'has a third party put you up to this?' I was to lie and say no! When I refused to do that and requested we end the call, she got really pushy. Rang back again about half an hour later. I didn't pick up.
