    AOCustomer reported AO.com with the number ‎01616966054 as Harassment calls

    This number is ao.com. They ring it when you've placed an order in the pretence of confirming delivery details etc. In fact, their sole purpose is to sell you their costly insurance cover for the items you've bought. No new information re delivery details is provided, they just repeat your order details. These are unsolicited scripted insurance sales calls and as such a form of harassment. They don't leave a message when they ring so that you ring back and incur the cost of the call. Very shoddy behaviour.

    I got a call from this number, insisting me to give them my home address. When I said you should have it on the order sheet, they hung up. Very disturbing. I picked it up as I just bought a washing machine from ao.com.
    Masterharper64 replied 1/24/22, 12:11 PM
    Read the Ts&Cs, people, before you tick the "I have read...." box. You agree to them using your personal details for marketing purposes and a polite "no, thank you." is all that is required!

    AO.com trying to sell you insurance on purchases under the pretense of confirming delivery info. Upon checkout you're required to leave two phone addresses, a main and a backup, and they called both simultaneously

    Aiming4777 replied 11/23/21, 4:27 AM
    I agree. I have no secondary phone number so just repeat my mobile number as the back up and "both" get rung simultaneously. I regard this as harassment and will not be using AO in future (despite many years as a customer).

    Call following my order of a fridge from AO. Started out by giving me a little bit of fairly useful information regarding the delivery, but the main purpose of the call was to upsell insurance. There's no need to answer this call.

    AO.com - Some smooth talker basically signing you up to an extended warranty on your appliance without really asking you directly. When questioned, the agent was very clear this wasn't an extended warranty, "they just replace your appliance if it breaks". So, an extended warranty then.

    "So, I'll enable that for you and if you change your mind you have 28 days to call us back"

    Each time I buy something from AO I get pestered with unwanted calls. Had 8 calls from this and another associated number within a DAY! Not answering, blocked. Also purchased from Currys this week - no annoying harrassment by them. Give it up AO, you're antagonising customers!

    AO pretending to confirm a delivery then try to sell insurance on what you have purchased. I told her I was at work so didn't have the time and she said it will take you 2 seconds to log into your online banking for your account number and sort code....I politely declined and she was extremely annoyed , no doubt on commission

    5 calls received in the last 2 days from this number. I don't answer unknown numbers. No voicemail left, no message left, no email received. I recently purchased from AO, so based on previous comments, I assume this is a cost-trap call.

    Always screen calls from business/house numbers I don't know.

    Usually pays off. AO are still trying to contact me to sell me extended warranty a week after my chest freezer has been delivered.

    May get from Currys in future 'cause the prices are usually the same.

    AO calling to "confirm delivery details" (which I'd already received an email from them to confirm)... but hang on - would I like to buy insurance from them? Every time I place an order with them this happens. FYI, they use Domestic and General for extended warranties - who you can buy from yourself without using AO. I find it cheaper to put the money in a savings account to cover any repairs for all my appliances, and always end up quids in.

    Just been called 30 mins after ordering a new cooker from AO.com. Like others have said, checking about delivery, disposal of old item, then came the why the replacement, and then the sales pitch for insurance. Said I already had cover for that sort of thing and he instantly hung up, whilst I was mid-sentence. Must be having a bad day.

    Its not just AO
    I just received a call from a young woman claiming to be from boots appliances, in the pretence of confirming delivery details etc. In fact her sole purpose was to sell insurance cover!
    She repeated every detail of my delivery, which I already know, told me they can remove my old appliance, which I already know etc etc etc then asked me why my old appliance was broken! All leading to the insurance pitch! These are badly scripted insurance sales calls!
    I am very disappointed that boots have potentially 'sold' my details to a 3rd party and that they allow this.
    I have never experienced this from currys etc,
    Very dissapointed!
