  1. Baldrick reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Aggressive advertising

    Company is Direct Assist, it is a insurance referral company. They seem to think it perfectly reasonable to bully and intimidate people by not taking a polite refusal for an answer.

    Director is Darren Bullough, his address is 137 The Atrium, Whitefield, Manchester, M45 7AL.

    Darryl Topham replied 2014-10-14 20:55:59
    Wherever you got this number from STOP this now. Unless you have business with me then fuckoff.
    Its also polite to leave a message when you cant get intouch.

    If the owner does live in in alderley edge and parks his Aventador at the below address he's obviosly doing something right. I put a claim in through the real Direct Assist in December and they were really helpful and their solicitors have got me a decent payout already. If you don't like being 'harassed' by cold callers why don't you block their number I'm confused?

    Rang me 4 times in 16 hours, I hung up, they rang straight back, told then to fcuk off. They rang again the next day and again rang back when I politely hung up. Person told me they would keep on ringing until I gave them the information they require. I explained that this was against the law but the person was unconcerned. Hope they continue to call as it is quite cathartic to be able to swear and shout at someone with no fear of any consequences!

    Ice queen replied 2015-04-18 18:21:59
    I think you'll find that many of these complaints are not due to the real Direct Assist, I worked for a call centre in manchester and we were made to use their name on a daily basis because our company didn't have a MOJ licence. I eventually left and started at a new call centre and have since reported my old employer to the MOJ (not that this will have any effect, as the MOJ are a total waste of taxpayers money, and haven't got the resources to chase unregulated complaines).
    john replied 2018-12-18 13:56:02
    Reece Slater apparently was the one who ran the third party department and was falsely obtaining peoples information by pretending to be the client to get the information needed from the insurance company's and would receive large regular cash sums by Darren bullough for his wicked hard work

  6. Scumbags reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Rec'd call from woman this morning asking for me by name. When I asked who was calling she said she was calling from Direct Assist and this call was being recorded and the call was about my car accident. Knew it was an illegal call from that as I haven't had any accidents and am the telephone preference list. Did obviously concern me enough to check the number on the internet which brought me to this site.
    From previous posting they appear to be crooks.

  7. Tim reported unknown with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Every time they call me, I answer(costing them a charge for the call) and hang up. I then phone their free phone number (so they're charged when they answer) and hang up. I repeat this 10 times on redial. I possibly cost them 50-70 pence each time. If we all did this, we might put them out of business on call charges alone!!

  11. George reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Telemarketer

    As stated before this number is DIRECT ASSIST.
    The best action is to report them to the following:
    The Legal Ombudsman 0300 555 0333
    Claims Management Regulator 0333 200 0110
    Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) online contact.
    All the above can take action if they believe it appropriate.
    I'm ex-directory, on the TPS list, have a call blocker, have contacted Insurance companies and told them to remove me from their databases.

  12. Hacked Off reported unknown with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Called again today about a minor prang my daughter was involved in 16 months ago. When quizzed they claim that they were given our number by our insurers, but this is not true.

    Fortunately for my daughter she is away at Uni and they don't have her mobile.

    As other posters have said they don't take "No" for an answer and might ring back if you hang up on them.

    I was heartened by the post which said the company was in difficulty, perhaps this will stop the calls.

  13. Maj reported number 01618500421 as unknown

    I get called by these multiple times a day. They ring my mobile and ask for my fiancé, when I tell them this isn't his number, my number is registered on TPS and that they've got my number illegally following me doing an online insurance quote in his name they get aggressive and rude telling me I'm wasting their time! Whatttt? Wasting their time? Annoying!

  14. Indifferent reported unknown with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    One way of dealing with these people, if you have a bit of time to waste, is to waste their time.

    When they start talking about the accident you had, pick it up and run with it. Tell them you were told you would get a lot of money, as it was a Texaco tanker that hit you, and the driver was arrested because he was drunk.

    Sound confused / gormless. They like their customers to be stupid.

    Let them spent 15 minutes going through it (you might get passed to someone without brain damage at some point, it's OK, keep going).

    Then when you get bored, tell them exactly what you think of them, and put the phone down.

    They hate that. I've done it several times, now they just call once a day and slam the phone down on me. Very satisfying.

  19. Rallier reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Direct Assist are the scum of the earth (and that's being polite) when it comes to unsolicited calls. They are persistent and causing great stress to both myself and my wife. We are both retired, and neither of us drive, yet we are supposed to have had an accident while driving. How these companies ever get business is a mystery as all they do is annoy people intensely. It really is time that our government clamped down on the sharp practice of these con artists.

  21. Ann Oid reported A Management Company with the number 01618500421 as Telemarketer

    Obviously someone shared my number when I had a car accident over 18 months ago.

    Called by Adam, after his initial intro, I told him I wasnt interested. Interested in what, was his reply, I said ANYTHING you have to say. I hung up, he rang back, I told the [email protected] to f**k off.... 3 more times he rung.

    Ringing about an accident - so assume they are money grabbing scumbags - poor telemarketers earning minimum wage or worse - being told to f*ck off seven days a week ,eight hours a day - get a proper job then !!!!!. If I need a solicitor I can pick one I trust for myself. This country is going to SH*T.

  23. P. Doff reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Agressive accident compensation calls. Also call from 01236 546142 and 020 3476 0242. Just won't give up and always change the number when ringing you. P.I.T.A rating 100%

  24. Alan reported Direct Assist with the number 01618500421 as Telemarketer

    Called me several times, insisting I had opted in. I used their website contact form to complain and to my surprise got a reply offering to tell me where they got my details, BUT for a fee of 10.00!

    They also said my numbers had been removed but they've just called my mobile... They are now blocked.

    TPS/OFCOM/ICO are useless so long as these people can claim you have opted in. There needs to be a mechanism for checking and revoking opt-ins. Or better still make the default on all websites opt-OUT, and require positive confirmation from the owner of the number before allowing an opt-in.

  25. Kerry reported 0161 850 0421 with the number 01618500421 as Harassment calls

    Spoke to my wife she told them I was busy. Then called again when I was at work around 8pm. Calling their number back after 9.30pm says that 'The number you have dialled is not in service'

    Why do they keep on phoning about an "accident" that I keep telling them never took place!!? So thick skinned and can't get the message. They said they are phoning to help me "close the file"! What file? Are they dumb? However, the real culprits are the people selling them the telephone numbers in the first place. What can they possibly get out of it if there was genuinely no accident to "close the file" on?? Beats me!
