    Just recieved a call from this number the man said he was conducting research, i asked how he got my number, he told me they pick one number the rest is randomised thats how he got it, i wasnt buying it so i said not interested and hung up

    mikebuercart replied 12/12/11, 7:28 PM
    Recieved a call from the same number. Unfortunatley i wasn't home to answer it. I live in Italy but a few years ago bought an O2.ie sim card in Ireland and still have it here in Italy although i don't use it to dial calls, and honestley no one actually calls me. So I don't think the number is generated randomly ... someone is selling our phone numbers ! Who would call me on a foreign number while i am abroad? Nahhhh

    I love the comments from people saying that its a genuine company. Maybe but do you really want to divulge everything in your life to an unknown third party who will sell it on. Its another case of watching everything you do. If you fill up with petrol at tesco and use a clubcard and credit card they get your numberplate, age of car,your credit ability, what shopping you bought, and so on it goes. Great now they can market anything they like to you or sell your info.

    Claimed to be Populus Data Services, claimed to have generated number randomly and claimed to be conducting a survey. Refused to pay my usual fee of £100 per hour or part theerof for participating in surveys (!) and weren't very happy when I asked for their registered address. Scum.

    They rang me at 8 and it was for a survey and I said 'where did you get my number from?' and 'can you remove my number' so she said she got it from 'lifestyle database' and she said she's remove my number.

    Just got a call right after getting off the phone to my husband, saw the number was an 0345, I hung up cause I had gotten a cold call this morning from someone claiming I had a car accident 3 years ago, I was pregnant 3 years ago and have not driven since then. If I do pick up, I lie, "are you in dept?" "NO" "have you been missold PPI?" "NO" even if it is true, make it sound like you have no business for them. I even told them that "I" didn't exist.

    Legitimate research organisation that carry out a good deal of the opinion polls you see published in the media. Do not try to sell you anything and do not pass on your information to 3rd parties.

    If they were a legitimate research organisation they wouldn't call numbers that are registered with the TPS.

    I work for this company, not scammers in any way shape or form. All numbers found by random digit dialling or if done a survey and agreed to take part in future surveys gets put into a target sample. Aren't allowed to tell people the actual issues unless the company that commissions the survey allows it which is very rare.

    I don't mind participating in research or cold calls particularly but at 9pm? That's disgusting! I'm outraged!
    Mikki75 replied 11/14/15, 12:02 PM
    Again, as per previous comment, you certainly are scammers if you don't check numbers with the TPS before calling. Random digit dialling is not acceptable when so many numbers have specifically requested not to be called.

    Cold Called me the other week.Asked how he had my private number that is for family only, gave some BS answer. Wanted to do some survey. Explained to him I was ridiculously busy and didn't accept cold calls and want me number taking off their system immediately. Same number then called the other day. I gave the same unhappy response and have since had 3 missed calls from this same number. Not impressed. I never put my no. On any online site ever. I am on Orange.

    My home number is ex-directory and registered with the TPS. I've still had 2 calls from this organisation. The first was an automnated dial with no operator at the end - only a recorded message. The second someone actually spoke to me to tell me it was about a survey. On both ocassions I hung up without saying anything. I have reported the number to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) for breach of telecommunications rules.

    Anon replied 4/16/14, 11:58 PM
    They're not breaking any rules - read the TPS website and the Ofcom regulations. It's genuine market research (opinion polls for newspapers, BBC, etc) and they don't link your answers to your number at all, and don't have any personal information about you.
    spidergirl replied 12/6/15, 11:23 AM
    So why are they ringing at stupid times? I have had two missed calls in the past two days (weekend)? This last one is today which is a Sunday morning. Ridiculous!!!!

    Con men once again trying to sell, increase your payments, connect to your computer or any number of tricks to extract money from descent people by use of a phone. In my eyes anyone using a phone to and further their business is a criminal. All contacts made by people unknown to me deserve a 9 - and in this case it is a 9 and another number for my call blocker. £40 out of Argos --- best buy I ever made!

    Anon replied 4/28/14, 7:27 PM
    This number is the outgoing line of Populus a market research company, as such they are not in breach of the TPS as they are entitled to randomly generate numbers through a dialler system to contact a random sample of the population. They're a genuine company and you can clarify this by contacting the market research society on 0500396999

    These guys are very clever indeed. Be very careful. They even asked me my current income and who is vote for in the next election.
    It goes through a system. If you give enough details on the first call. They will follow up again on a week and get more.
    Just waste as much of their time as possible and give completely false info.

    Anon replied 4/17/14, 12:02 AM
    It's for social classification your income! Crazy fool. And as for the election, how do you think places like the BBC and newspapers get their stats on how the political parties are doing?!

    I don't think they are as I have nothing to do with the AA and have not made any internet purchases but they still rang my mobile. Seems interesting that someone else mentioned about O2 when I am on O2. Maybe Telefonica are selling our info?

    These scum are called "Populus" and claim to be a "respected" market research company. However, one of their operatives admitted to me that they are cold-calling by autodialling random digits to obtain live numbers. They should be reported to OFCOM, ICO and the MRS. http://www.populus.co.uk/contact/

    Anon replied 4/17/14, 12:04 AM
    They do and it's not illegal. Read up on the law before you complain about it!
    Anon replied 4/28/14, 7:31 PM
    Random Digit Dialling is a recognised market research technique which is a completely legal process market research companies are allowed to do to contact a random sample of the population. As they hold no details on you and are simply seeking your views on a variety of usually topical issues they are above board and not breaking any laws, as I'm sure you will now be aware of in response to the complaint you have made

    Woman rang from this number, asking if she could conduct a survey about 'a wide range of issues'. I asked could she give me an example, but she said no - not unless I agreed to the survey - laughable response! I said I was busy, she asked if she could call back. I said maybe another evening. I'll post again if she rings back and I find out any more info.
