    Nothing more than an unsolicited call trying to source personal information under the guise of a non-existent PPI claim/refund. "Mark" pretended to know me, yet then asked me to "confirm some details for his records". Unsurprisingly he doesn't appear to have any details other than my phone number, leaving me free reign to waste his time for a bit with ficticious info. If this sort of thing doesn't provide you with personal amusement my advice would be to simply hang up and block the number. Meanwhile I await an update on my PPI claim for the three speed boats I recently purchased on finance with baited breath!

    Nice one, Sebs. I also enjoy the sport of baiting these numskulls. So long as they speak to the likes of you or I, then they are not getting the ear of the gullible or plain daft. Sadly, for every several dozen kick backs they get, they must surely lure some folks into their (vastly overpriced) service. Very sad. Some of them sound quite nice, too, and I sure they would do well if they got a proper job, like selling kitchen scrappage schemes, solar panels, or anti-virus software. :-)

    Nice one! don't get angry - get even great fun... they do give up after a while

    My favourite game is to look around the room and try to flog them random items. If I feel particularly mischevious I will attack a new accent to each item.

    Had a call from them a couple of minutes ago, could hardly hear what the woman was saying due to loud music and laughing in background, but when I finally understood her I told here that my number was on TPS and she shouldn't have called anyway. She tried a pathetic excuse about how long the number had been on the TPS but I shut her up and told her that whatever she was trying to sell me the awful background noise was unprofessional. Number now on block list.
  2. Jackie reported unknown with the number 01617414000 as Telemarketer

    Pretended they knew who I was and that they had a PPI payment for me if I would just 'confirm' my details.
    Needless to say they hadn't and I didn't.
    They didn't even know my name.

    Dave replied 2014-04-17 17:14:54
    I had a call from the same people also asking me to confirm my details on a "claim" I had allegedly made. At which point they then asked me if I had any mortgages/policies/loans that I had made a claim on, completely contradicting their initial question. Idiots.

    They rang me asking about ppi I had 4 years ago when I was 12 years old

    Same for me. Just don't answer. There really needs action to be taken to stop this.

    Dont hang up....Remember these retards are cold calling you so you can say anything you like...keep them on the phone and take the piss out of them and one thing is for sure you wont get called again.

  4. Paul M reported HYC with the number 01617414000 as Harassment calls

    Another damn PPI call. When will these people pi55 off and let all the normal people in the UK go about their lives without constant interruption. Added to the 100+ other blocked PPI numbers I have. Also why is it always from a Manchester (0161) code. I think I can safely block all Manchester numbers...

  5. Dan Damon reported unknown with the number 01617414000 as Telemarketer

    Just another poor sod sitting in a cramped call-centre on minimum wage wanting to know if I'd ever had PPI. I let the young lady drone on for a bit, dangling the carrot of a sale in front of her, lulling her into a false sense of hope, before hanging up. Nothing personal, love; I hope you find a proper job one day. Mind you, this PPI call is a symptom of this illness that is modern Britain: a nation of betting shops, payday loan companies and call centres - all thanks to successive Labour and Tory governments (and the EU). Anyway, guys, listen up. I've never had PPI. But even if I had ... do you not think I would have got off my arse and reclaimed it by now? Now kindly bugger off and find a soul.

    They usually get less than minimum wage as the bosses call them 'self-employed.' No matter what they're selling its usually a kid 16-21 on their first job or getting through uni. They know you don't want to but into the or scheme but they don't have the power to change the companies strategy (I tried, deaf ears). Doing what you describe, while ime sure you only have the best of intentions will crush the poor kid, they've just made 200 calls for nought and now you give them hope and rip it away? It's the type of psychological torture they do to war prisoners! Some of the ideas above are good, take the piss, tell them an outrageous story, order a million of what they're selling in the name of Eilean Dover. Even then go and complain about the companies if you wish. But be nice to the kids on the phone, a lot of the time it's this or the dole and you wouldn't really want to pay for that either, would you?

    Mr Dan Damon: thanks for your comment! Had me in fits of giggles for a good few minutes, and accurately reflects the feelings of all of us who are constantly pestered by these silly prats. Thanks again!

  7. Darren reported HCY with the number 01617414000 as Telemarketer

    Asked If I had recieved my PPI claim/check. I said no. Then he said well have you seen the news about banks paying out PPI claims. I said who are you and I guess you are assuming I have a bank? He then said that doesnt matter. I interupted him and said If Ive had a bank/credit card/insurance or anything like that then I won't be claiming will I. He then said sorry and rang off.

    Joey replied 2015-10-06 17:30:08
    I'm on O2 and I've been getting an increasing number of these calls the past couple of years. They're the reason I don't have a landline. I thought I would be free from this harrassment with only a mobile, but clearly not.
  9. Gymmers reported 01617414000 with the number 01617414000 as Telemarketer

    I work for the NHS and my phone is kept clear for staff and patient issues. How the hell did they find my number?

    Am about to report

    AlanR replied 2014-11-03 17:43:03
    I dont believe they found your number - computer randomly generates digit sequence then rings it, some work some dont, yours obviously did! I experience same problem.
  10. Derek reported NYC Manchester Ltd with the number 01617414000 as Telemarketer

    gentleman (arse) called with latest News broadcast about banks putting aside more money for PPI esp TSB and I was entitled to £2200!! Asked where he got my number ~ NYC database was the answer...more likely random dial caller. Asked if he knew who I was. This was not nessary a he already had my details!! work that one out!! let him rattle on for 5 mins with phone on loud speaker. Did this so he would not hassle anyone else. In the end he asked for somemore personel details and I replied saying that I did not live in GB and this was a works phone. His resounding reply was that I was a D1ck and wasted his time and hung up
