  1. Kev reported Facts International with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    Ok then, you receive a phone call, they know your name and they want you to engage in a survey. This is nothing more than profile building and the likelihood is that this information will be sold on. Let’s turn the tables and even out the playing field a bit. Here’s a profile on the company associated with the nuisance phone number.

    Facts International Ltd is an independent market research agency based in Ashford, Kent. Facts International is part of the Insight and Engagement Division of Chime Communications plc. (Chime is a backing company to entrepreneurs wishing to start their own pioneering business in marketing communications.) History: Facts International sold by Barbara Lee to Chime Communications and private investor Nick Lamb in Feb 2007. Nick Lamb sold his stake in the business to the firm’s parent company Chime Communications for £1.7m in 2011; he currently holds the position of Chairman. The next time you’re pulling your hair out when you receive yet another unsolicited phone call, just remember good old Nick still has a good mop of hair.

    And there’s so much more if you dig around!

    I tried a few numbers to get them to take me off their list but always ended up with a recorded message.

    The number supplied above (01233 648 530) worked for me. I'm now off their list. Many thanks Kev
    Ian replied 2015-07-10 11:07:17
    I received a t/call from this number , however as I did not recognise the number ( I do not live in the UK but off Island ). I normally let the answer machine take the message.
    But the other person did not leave a message or contact number. What a shame!!!
    not generally a complainer replied 2016-12-12 14:51:04
    I have had 12 calls in the last month, often on the same day within 2 minutes. If they were standing outside ringing my doorbell, this would be called harassment. At what point does it becomes harassment if approached via the telephone?
    I have all the call logs - any lawyers here?
    ex worker replied 2017-01-18 14:39:49
    ^ that would be because you are not answering the phone - it will auto call you back unless you actually pick up the phone.

    If you say you are not interested in helping any companies with customer satisfaction surveys they will black list your number.

  2. Siwal reported scam, apparently Natwest with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    The guy introduced himself with Alex and asked for me by name. He said he was calling on behalf of my bank and he was doing a costumer survey. When I asked him what bank it was, he wouldn`t answer and tried to avoid the answer over and over again by switching to the next question. I said I was not telling anything to cold callers on the phone, he hung up.

    derp replied 2014-10-21 10:56:49
    He didn't answer because of data protection. Workers can't say the name of the bank unless you confirm who you are, you could be anybody.
    Ray replied 2014-12-16 13:55:15
    Derp

    Data protection!?? They phone you and they havent a clue who you are !
    Softmick99 replied 2015-04-09 21:56:12
    Derp sounds like a true derp!
    BlueHaze replied 2015-04-27 20:44:33
    Derp is totally correct. I have previously worked for the company, conducting satisfaction surveys on behalf of high street banks.

    All the banks provide to Facts is one name name and a telephone number. They are not allowed to mention the name of the bank until they confirm who they are speaking to. Other people in the household might not be aware of the fact this person has an account with this bank, or are trying to keep it secret through divorce proceeding, (this was the example the bank used when explaining this to us, a soon to be divorced wife finding out about a bank account the husband was squirreling money away in.)

    Of course, it's up to you whether you want to give up your free time to speak to them. They call people from 9am to 9pm, which is pretty unsociable. To be honest, it's the only place in the town that'll employ people straight out of school.

    I sound like bit of an apologist here, and that's not my intent. Its not the most dignified way to earn a living, but its the first rung on the ladder for many kids in the community.
  3. On my lunch break reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Unknown

    Just got back from lunch and noticed a missed call on my desk phone. Checked the number on google and this is what it is. Now I want them to call me back. Why? Because I work for Ofcom

  4. dave reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    I have spoken with this company several times regarding the service of my bank Natwest. They do not ask for any personal or sensitive information, they are only interested in your most recent interaction. Natwest would not use an untrustworthy company. Unfortunately, as with any company, you occassionally have muppetts working within the system giving everyone else a bad name. People have to work, you're better off directing abuse at the job shy.

    Beej replied 2014-11-15 01:15:03
    I don't see a problem with directing my abuse at both! People may have to work, but we are all entitled to down time where we are not continually interupted by companies ringing us. My phone is for my use, and not so companies can phone me whenever they feel like it, when I have done everything I can to ensure I receive no unsolicited calls. End of.
    face palm replied 2017-01-18 14:42:15
    ^ then just say you don't want to help improve the service you recieve and your number would be black listed.

  6. Teen reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as trustworthy number

    I used to work here. It literally is mostly students trying to make a bit of money. Absolutely nothing suspicious in the slightest I promise you. Some of you are very strange/lonely/bored

    elder replied 2015-12-22 19:43:25

    blaackorchid replied 2016-06-08 23:12:37
    some of us are SO fed up with nuisance calls. Not bored or lonely. Why should I be woken up at 11pm, for some stupid survey!
    okay then replied 2017-01-18 14:43:45
    ^ they only call until 9pm.

    And "little shits" have bills to pay, if you honestly hate helping companies improve their service ask to have your number black listed.
    Killittle shitz replied 2017-02-13 15:19:41
    Teen, Get a proper job and stop being an irritation. If, as you say the place is riddled with students it is a sad reflection that the cream of our crop cannot find anything more productive, useful or mind expanding that read a pre-prepared script. Every call I receive takes up the maximum of their time as I weave an inventive yet plausable mix of truths, half truths and lies. If more people would do this eventually these nuisances would go out of business.
  7. yorkshire78 reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    This guy called at 20.50pm tonight and said he was from Tesco mobile and asked me by name, and asked if I had contacted Tesco mobile to change my number or did I contact Tesco within the last week, very suspicious!

  8. Gem reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Harassment calls

  10. Hairy Bear reported ? with the number 01233648537 as Unknown

    This number has rung my mother three times this week and just hangs up when she answers the phone which is very disturbing for her. These people need stopping, we have caller preference but it doesn't seem to make any difference. :(

  11. AssaultonPrecinct13 reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    Apparently a market research company based in Ashford, Kent. When I have to give my phone number to a company (bank, etc) I don't expect it to be passed to ANYONE - even a company doing research for whoever I gave my number to. I especially hate being called at 1900 - 2100 hrs and the phone not ringing long enough for me to answer it, even if I wanted to. Especially annoying if I'm actually expecting someone to call and then the phone goes 'dead'. Don't need this harassment at my age.

  13. Max reported Facts International with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    This has been a regular nuisance caller for some time. Thanks to some helpful comments above, which revealed that this company is employed by various high street banks to conduct customer surveys. I rang my bank and explained to them that I do NOT wish to have my private, TPS-registered, ex-directory number passed on for this purpose. My bank has promised to withdraw my number immediately. It appears that the banks assume, unless you tell them otherwise, that their customers have got nothing better to do than to tell someone else how crap their service and interest rates are at present.

    Polite survey about UK/US/China trade relations and relative media preferences; no really intrusive personal questions. My only complaint was that initially told it would take a few minutes but it actually took more than 30 minutes of my time. Sounded professional and genuine to me.

    Why call at 8.40pm to gather information? I don't care if they are legit or not, this is a scummy way to make living and they should just fold up. Like all parasites they are a complete nuisance!

    Luke replied 2015-05-02 11:13:13
    The people calling are simply just paid to do it, it's not like they want to.
    And Facts Int. is an independent market research AGENCY meaning they are employed by other companies to call their customers to hear their feedback on their service.
    Blame your bank or whoever they was calling on behalf of.

  26. MG Mac reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Unknown

    I have been called at least once a day for the last week. They either hang up before I get a chance to answer or there is just silence when I do answer.
    It's particularly annoying as they are diverted to my mobile phone from my office number .... I have the privilege of paying for the divert !

    I have just called their office number and asked to be removed from all future calls / campaigns or whatever. The woman I spoke to was very pleasant (as was I) but I did warn her that I would report any further calls.

    Marie called today and claimed she was from my bank, wouldn't tell me which bank, and then told me it was on behalf of a bank. Still up to their old tricks, spoke to Kathy and she told me she would speak to Marie and remove our number from their data.

  36. Dave P reported Facts International with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    Certainly persistent. I had a call weeks ago whilst I was driving. Said they were researching for NatWest. Informed them that I couldn't speak at the time and since then have had numerous attempted calls on my mobile, which I now ignore and don't answer. Just had one on my land-line (mobile was switched off - it's Sunday - a day off, don'cha know!) which I left to the answering machine but 1471 told me it was them - again!

  37. Nat reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Survey

    Firstly, I really don't appreciate being called on my landline at nearly 9pm, when I have 2 young children in bed! So that got my back up before I had even answered! Apparently the call was to do with a customer service survey RBS, well peeing people off at daft o'clock at night when they are trying to relax is not a good way to get good marks on a customer service survey, is it?! Asked them to call me back at a more convenient time, but now that I know they are a third party, however above board it may be, I am not willing to discuss anything about my bank or mortgage, even on a subjective level. Not going to happen.

  38. Ghosty Goo reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Unknown

    Joined Natwest bank 1 week ago, received the call today. I'm very very careful (you wouldn't believe how off the grid i am) so I know full well it is Natwest and i'm pretty furious since i explicitly stated several times that i did not want my details passing to any 3rd party agencies. I will taking it up with Natwest, not Facts Int.

  39. Elizabeth reported unknown with the number 01233648537 as Harassment calls

    Asked many times for this company to stop calling me. Still get repeated calls. These are unsolicited so THIS IS HARASSMENT. Why ANY company thinks a householder should confirm ANY details to an unsolicited cold caller mystifies me.

    Luke replied 2015-05-02 11:09:59
    Actually they are given to Facts Int. by various companies looking for feedback from their customers because they're too lazy to do it themselves.
    Either that or for some surveys they simply use a random number generator
