  1. Ian reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Aggressive advertising

    Suggested they had a legitimate reason for knowing my financial details.

    Turns out to be a PPI "fishing trip" where they suggest they have knowledge that I've had a loan from Barclays/TSB/HSBC/Lloyds/someone else... and can get money back for me if I give them my details.

    Avoid and block this number.

    I've also received the same call. I've never had these kind of calls till I started job hunting through gumtree. I'm pretty sure someone is selling data to third party.
    Newbie replied 2014-08-27 13:51:28
    @Joe... This also happened to me, I did not receive such anonymous calls until I started job hunting, its ridiculous!

    This number has rang me 3 times in two days. The never leave a message. Curiously enough, I started getting these calls shortly after I uploaded my cv to a job website. I've blocked this caller.

    Got a call this morning, same M.O. (busy call center, guy didnt identify himself or the company, mentioned I was due some money because of a refund). Told him I dont have a loan or a CC - he asked 'you don't have a loan?'and when I confirmed I didn't he told me to 'take care' and hung up.
    I am also jobhunting and receiving quite a bit of spam in my inbox these days...

    Thanks to the posters for sharing their experience and to whomever created this website in the first place!

    I got a call yesterday, I've been using totaljobs.co.uk but they only aggregate from many agencies. I've made around 70 applications in the space of a week so no telling who the culprit really is.

    I too have had the same call from these sharks ... they say they are customer advice line and are really a fraudulent outfit
    Claire replied 2015-01-20 20:46:14
    The reason for the connection between jobsites and these calls is that the CVs that are posted online are not hidden. Many jobsites have an option where employers can browse the site and view CVs without a job seeker's prior knowledge. It's probably quite easy for these scams to pretend to be employers and see personal details that way. I know this because I've been experiencing the exact same thing since I was job seeking.
  2. Phishkiller reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    Knew this was a scammer instantly when I spoke to him. So ignorant and thick sounding, I thought I would lead on him a bit. I pretended to be interested and even gave him some fake bank details. After ten mins of chat he became suspicious of my keenness to provide such personal information and asked if I was being honest. I said "what do you think you scamming tw*t. Hope that I have ruined your day pond-life" hung up and blocked their number. Most satisfying :)

  3. Mark reported Consumer Helpline with the number 02081029496 as Telemarketer

    Just received a call from this number. Guy in a busy call centre said he was calling about mis-sold finance or payment protection insurance prior to 2011. Said I'd never had anything on finance, and the guy said he would remove my details from the database. In reality this just means they won't phone you again for that particular campaign, but you can guarantee your details are not deleted.

    Re comments about CV library from others on this page, this is quite coincidental because I have my details on CVlibrary.co.uk too. Equally it's possible that these companies trawl through for contact numbers on sites where people upload their details publically (like for employers and agencies to see) so it might not be CV Library selling your details on.

    susy_gold replied 2014-08-21 17:21:57
    Just had a call too - but I'm not on CV Library or any job websites, nor do I use price comparison sites. However I did get a new phone contract 6 months ago and had more rubbish calls since then - so suspect it may well be Tesco Mobile or the insurance company flogging off details!

    kali_dpm replied 2015-01-08 11:54:58
    I had the same call as you 10 minutes ago. The person was Stephanie and she was calling on behalf of a company I didn't get the name. She said exactly the same about a payment protection insurance prior to 2011. That she wanted to go through some details and proceed the refund. I said, hold on a second, you have to give me money? I don't understand, this call is out of the blue, could you explain for me? Then she asked me if I had a loan before and I asked twice what??? (because I couldn't understand her accent) and she hang up... She did me a favour to be honest... Totally scam... Number blocked.
    The thing is I am actively looking for jobs as well, so I don't even know where I have sent my CV, totaljobs, fish4jobs, indeed, toplanguagesjobs, CVlibrary and many more. Who knows!!!

    I had uploaded by cv to totaljobs too. The next day the calls started. I rang the number and he mentioned the word "Reactive". I hung up and blocked them.

  5. person reported Reactiv Media with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    Guy calls saying I qualify for a refund due to a prior overpayment and that he can help me claim it. I ask where he's calling from, he says "consumer services". Starts asking for my banking details and I have to interrupt him again to ask what company the "consumer services" relates to. He answers with 'Reactiv Media' and the continues badgering me for bank details. I stop him to say I don't recognise the name of the company and if he could remind me what service I purchased from them. He hung up.

  6. harrassed daily reported number 02081029496 as unknown

    As usual I did not answer and checked the number out on tellows before I decided if to call it back.
    The reason for the comment is to suggest that these calls come as a result of fishing scams in the form of job roles posted on Direct.Gov universal jobmatch website.
    I never used Gumtree or put my details on there, so for me they have not come from there. It is likely though, that people put fake jobs there too. Or if not fake jobs, sell the details of the unsuccessful candidates. Either way its a liberty.

    As my pseudonym suggests since starting to hunt for jobs online I have given up on my old email and my personal phone is....harrassed daily.
    Scunners.

    Tips:
    Put as little personal info on a CV as possible.
    Have a job hunting specific email address.
    Don't use your personal mobile, if you can afford a burner, use one.
    I also use a slightly different name on CV and covers and when I get a call asking for me by that name, if its not job related I'll end the call.

  9. ohemaa reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    Received a phone call from this number today citing consumer services and something about a refund due to an overpayment on a loan taken out within the last 12 years ( I haven't). I asked him for details on this loan and he questioned me back asking 'well haven't you?'. I retorted back 'well you tell me since you're the one here calling me.' He hung up. I call back and the same guy picks up and trys to pretend it was a colleague I had spoken to. He then hangs up again. Avoid this number people.

  10. Andy reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Aggressive advertising

    Claimed he was Consumer advise and then asked me about the small loan I'd taken out in 2009. (I hadn't) He hung up when accused of fishing.
    Similar to many previous commentors, I too have just registered with Jobsite and Jobserve in the last few days. More conincidence?

  11. kali_dpm reported number 02081029496 as unknown

    I had a call today from this number. The person was Stephanie and she was calling on behalf of a company I didn't get the name. She said something about a payment protection insurance prior to 2011 and I was going to get a refund?!. She wanted to go through some details and proceed to the refund. I said, hold on a second, you have to give me money? I don't understand, this call is out of the blue, could you explain further, please? Then she asked me if I had a loan in the past and I asked twice what??? (because I couldn't understand her accent) and she hang up... She did me a favour to be honest... Totally scam... Number blocked.
    The thing is I am actively looking for jobs, so I don't even know where I have sent my CV with my personal details, totaljobs, fish4jobs, indeed, toplanguagesjobs, CVlibrary and many more. Who knows!!!
    Anyway, don't trust this number!

  12. Nkosi reported number 02081029496 as 020 8102 9496

    My I phone can send text messages to numbers I don't recognise If it gets failed to send I check the number on google and end up on sites like this one, where I read of other people who answered the call giving the information I suspected. Needless to say it is now in the blocked caller list.

  13. Annie reported Reactive with the number 02081029496 as Telemarketer

    PPI fishing trip. Kayley was working from a script, told me I had 'opted in' (a lie) and that I had had an 'overpayment on finance'. I had no idea what she was talking about. She was quite pleasant, so I thought she may have been genuine. I asked her some questions, then she mentioned the words ' you may have a PPI claim'.

    Unlike others, I have not been on Gumtree, am not looking for a job, and have not uploaded my CV anywhere. I suspect they generate numbers and just see who answers.

    Got a call today informaing of PPI payment due to me! Told the caller that I wasn't due any as I havdn't had finance in years due to bankruptcy, anyway he was quite convincing so I went along with it for a while, he then passed me over to another handler from CLAIMS ADVISOR GROUP, who went through even more Bull, she asked me about anymore finance that I may have had to which I again said that I had been bankrupt, she tried to end the call there as I wasn't entitled, I then had a rant and asked where they had got my number from (only 3 months old) she said it was from not opting our online, which I always do! after reading comments on here I have clicked that I have joined an online recrutiment agency yesterday! quite enjoyed my rant actually! :)

  23. qwerty reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Debt collection company

    Received a call of this number today from a busy call centre. I was told that I owe £2,000 and for a financial payment for a car and needed to pay it urgently or would face court action.

    I then informed the lady that I don’t have a car and don’t drive, to which I received ‘sorry’ and then the call ended.

    I do drive and have a car but obviously a scam. The caller knew my full name.

  24. Georgia reported Reactive media with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    Number was marked London - Girl called with a very strong Manchester accent. Didn’t speak at first. Asked her what the call was in regards too.. Apparently I have over paid on car finance? I asked her to remove my number - She stated something about being a liar - I asked what she had just called me to which she replied that she was speaking to her colleague - I replied that it wasn’t very professional. Lady replied 'Well do you want your number removing or not'

  25. Lazarus reported unknown with the number 02081029496 as Debt collection company

  28. Steven reported PPI Reclaim with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    Reactive Media Marketing phoned to say that I was due a refund.

    You can tell it is a cold caller PPI scam the way they talk. My response was "Well if I am due a refund then pay it back using the Direct Debit that it was taken by".. that seamed to confuse him a bit but was back on script... "Have you ever had a loan or credit card"

    Just a quick note if you are ever tempted by this scam.. the average refund is under £1000, and they take 30% of that, £300, for their expertise to reclaim it. £300 is about 4 hours work maximum to fill in the forms. If you tried to do it yourself this process could take an hour or 2 longer, sy 5 hours. Are you willing to loose £300 for the sake of a few hours work?

  29. notonuisance reported reactive with the number 02081029496 as Harassment calls

    numerous calls over last 48hours from this number , answered one to "simon" who was rude and aggressive in tone and pitch. he told me I had opted into marketing (I advised I work in financial services never opt in) he then became very rude and refused to give me info regarding company, have now reported to the ICO and FCA. Also emailed a complaint to [email protected] let see if they acknowledge it. Untrustworthy rude company. I have not used any job sites or uploaded my cv either

  30. Marcus reported Quate with the number 02081029496 as Debt collection company

    I just received a call from this number 02081029496 telling me I am owed money from a loan I took out within 5 years, when I said no he said I mean 10 years, when I asked im how he got my number and email address which I have only had for 2 years he said some bullshit about how he got it I cant remember. Then he asked me for post code which I told him I wasn't going to give it to him because he called me and I didn't know him from Adam, he kept asking me. Now I read these other comments I see that other people have received these called since posting their CV's online. I have been doing that the past few days.

    Been rang by this number several times this week, but they would not leave a message on my answer machine. They rang at 3pm today, so i answered the call. Was told they were Consumer helpline, and i was owed an over payment on a loan in 2011. Never had a loan. so they were phishing. Was told they had been given the wrong information. Don't know how they got my number as Ex-directory.

I called them back and a woman answered 'hello this is consumer helpline, how can I help'. She then started saying something about loans. I am applying to jobsites and apparently there is a connection between a jobsite and this call, as I've read in other comments as well.

    After recieving a couple of calls from this number I answered thinking it may be from a potential job. It was about the APR on a loan I'd taken out in 2011 and did I want to claim any of it back? In 2011, I was 16 and I wasnt taking out any loans!

    Reading some of the comments here, I too have been using CV Library to search for jobs...Now a little bit weary of where I apply for jobs!

    Told him it was pretty suspicious and that I didn't feel comfortable giving out personal information.

    Googled the number and ended up here.
