Hi guys, a friend of mine owns a chinese restaurant/take away and has been plagued with 'kids' ringing and 'pretending' to enquire what's on the menu . . . 50 calls a night for about 4 weeks, they shut for 10 days in january and then when they reopened it started again, although 20 calls a day now . . . each time the number is different and when they ring back it doesn't connect . . . the dialling codes were mobiles but then landlines too, however some of the area codes were 100's of miles away! Is there and internet scrambling facility? i'm guessing these kids are using something off the internet, maybe voip or something that can scramble or make up the numbers to hide who's ringing? BT were no help and of course the only option i've mentioned was the True Call facility but they're resisting because of the cost . . . any help would be appreciated! thanks in advance
A claims firm that bombarded consumers with more than 1.3 million spam messages has been fined £80,000 as part of a wider crackdown against companies behind nuisance calls and texts. UKMS Money Solutions (UKMS) used lists of mobile phone numbers it had bought from data brokers to contact people encouraging them to make claims for payment protection insurance (PPI), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said. It said the fine issued to the firm was the first of three penalties totalling £250,000 it will issue this week to companies behind nuisance texts and calls, bringing the total number of fines issued over the last four months over nuisance marketing to £1m. The ICO said Birmingham-based UKMS did not check that those it called had agreed to receive marketing texts – something it was legally required to do. It said a total of 1,442 people complained during the nine-week campaign between April and June this year. No one from UKMS could be reached for comment. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/claims-firm-fined-nuisance-calls-crackdown-122734812.html#HWCuKKU

Hi guys i have an outstanding cancellation charge with Orange, now i don't live with my mum and i haven't for the past 3 years. Tonight my mum phones my mobile saying that someone called xxx from MDR has phoned asking to speak to me my mum asked what its regarding and he wouldn't say anything i phoned my mum back and asked for his phone number so i called back to speak to someone called xxx who was a right snotty cow. I asked how she has got hold of my mothers house number and she said maybe you've called us off it before i was like i aint that stupid love, so i demanded she took it off her record and replaced it with my own personal record where could they have got it from ? either from a credit check years ago off Orange or when i was a PAYG when i lived with my mum i dont know but id love to know is there a way i can get them into **** for harrasing another member of my family and can i demand proof all the information they have on me ?
