For the last couple of weeks I have been receiving calls from 01865 525980 to my mobile phone.

 

This is a local number to me, but as they've called during work hours so I haven't picked up, and they haven't left any messages,

 

however having googled the number it appears it is Aktiv Kapital.

 

Is this a new trick from AK,

 

calling alleged debtors from a local number in the hope they'll answer the phone,

 

or have they genuinely moved from Bromley to Oxford

 

- their website suggests not!

No - not a new trick at all and have had it happen to me on more than one occasion. Damned sneaky though!

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

When companies make these calls, then can transmit any number they like. I keep getting phone calls from an Energy company, who transmit various numbers when I enquire using 1471. I am on TPS, but this does not stop some companies. I don't get into a conversation with the companies if I happen to pick up a call, just not interested, don't bother phoning again please. I suppose I could follow up with a complaint to TPS, but cannot be bothered.

We could do with some help from you.

Depending on your phone you can get a call blocker.

 

I use Android, and run "call control". My phone is set up to only allow numbers that are all ready in my contacts list. All other calls can then either be diverted to the answer phone or just hang up on the caller.

I've got an iPhone, so no such thing is available - I just name the numbers 'DoNotAnswer' in my address book and set the default ringtone to silent for them, which is almost as good.
