Recently changed my landline number with TalkTalk. Within days began getting calls from male person asking aggressively if I had been in an accident.


Rather cleverly the number appears slightly different whenever they call.


TalkTalk have said they only have a marketing list for internal employees to sell their products to customers and do not sell on numbers to 3rd parties. They have taken me off their marketing list, even though I had no knowledge of being opted in or asked to be.


Have to say I am not totally convinced.


Just wondered if anyone else has had this issue?

If the number has been re-used then you might get calls for the previous owner of the number.


Alternatively the claims people might start at 000001 and work their way upwards


I have had both in the past!
