Calls from Accent Marketing Survey the number +441312208778 - Expert Analysis

According to the comments of the tellows users, the phone number +441312208778 belongs to the market research company Accent. The reason for the call is to conduct a telephone survey on current topics. The Surveys differ depending on the time and the person called. These kind of surveys are often conducted by call center interviewers, so that many people are called at the same time, but the call is only put through to the person who finally answers first. For this reason, there is often only a brief ringing or already hung-up conversation when the call is answered. However, calls for opinion research are legal calls and do not require prior consent. But the participation in these surveys is always voluntary.

Who calls with 01312208778?

    Abertawe reported unknown with the number ‎01312208778 as Survey

    I was informed that the call was from a company, based in Edinburgh, contracted by Welsh Water to carry out customer surveys.
    I was asked for the first part of my postcode, after which the gentleman told me that they already appeared to have a sufficient sample of results from my postcode area. After apologies, call was terminated amicably.
    Seemed to be above board - no inference of any scam.

    Friendly lady from Accent MR (, conducting survey for WRSE (Water Resource South East) about water usage and draught. survey is quite long. Not a scam. Numbers are generated at random by computer which is why even ex-directory numbers like mine get called.

    Cold call. I checked with my supplier Welsh Water who confirmed it was a genuine marketing call. I recommended to Welsh Water that their website should state that Accent make calls on their behalf. Otherwise Welsh Water will be wasting its money if recipients of call refuse to respond to the survey.
