  1. Whitehorse reported number +441788578170 as BIRMINGHAM NEWS INCORPORATING THE MIDLANDS WEEKLY

    This company is part of a plethora of so-called newspaper publications (South East Telegraph; Western Guardian etc.) attempting to pose as reputable companies. They do their research to see which newspapers businesses have advertised in and then call pretending to be them asking for money. They act very familiar - as though they've chatted with you before and attempt to stay on the line whilst they send you a 'confirmation' email that they want you to reply to there and then. This confirmation email is taking out a bogus advert with them and is NOT confirming a past advert. They will call up to 15 times in one day to get this payment from you - eg. £350 + VAT for an advert that costs £65 + VAT from the reputable company. I caught them out by contacting the company they said they were representing and they informed me that I was the 2nd customer to call them that week saying exactly the same thing. DO NOT be sucked in - there are various extensions to the 017885 number but all will claim to be from a newspaper publication and they are complete cowboys.

    I paid to advertise with this company they never printed my advertisement and kept my money I spoke to the telesales agent Calum Mackintosh who cold called me and he assured me I would get a refund from the MD Mathew Walker if I called back later. I rang and spoke to Mathew Walker who sounds like an illiterate he refused my refund made up a tissue of lies and excuses and said he actually cant issue refunds and the BOSS will call me.......still waiting!! Con artists report them to ActionFraud, Citizens Advice consumer helpline and the police.

    Firstly, Thank you James for posting here - did you have any success?

    Alas I found it too late ... I made payment to these people too, for advertising in an upcoming event brochure of almost £230, (I stupidly paid twice, as they rang back the next day and said the payment hadn't gone through, I did actually check with my bank, and there was nothing showing as having gone through the day before, but it did appear within a few days]. I've been in touch with Action Fraud as well as my Bank. These scammers rang me from 4 different 017885* numbers over 2 days ... I have emailed them, no response, I have called them MANY times, no reply other than once, and he would not give me his name, only his job title, Sales Director [Southeast Telegraph]... I'm a disabled single-mum running a small business who cannot afford this at the best of times, least just before Xmas.

    We have unfortunately been a victim of misrepresentation fraud by this company who claimed to be advertising as the official publisher of an upcoming event.

    We have opened a case with ActionFraud and would like you to do the same in order to bring our case - and our losses - to justice.

    Please contact ActionFraud with ANY information you may have regarding attempted scams or committed scams related to the individuals Matthew Walker, Tim Heywood or Thomas Chamberlain - trading under the organisations South East Telegraph - Manor House Publishing - Western Guardian - offices based in Rugby.

    We'd also like to hear if anyone has succeeded in lodging a successful complaint about these individuals and whether they have been successful in receiving their money back.

    You can contact ActionFraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit their website at:

    Together we can stop these horrible individuals from illegitimately taking money from businesses.

    Thank you in advance,
