Good evening caggers,

On Saturday received a phone call from Moorcroft ,

I found this out by checking the number on Google .

Just a silent call.

 

 

What I want to know is what they are up to.

 

 

Have a whirly gig machine that just ring numbers randomly, or is it something more sinister.

 

 

You phone them back and they politely ask you for your name and address, and if you're on their hit list bingo.

 

 

You have done the hard work for them.

Or am I just being paranoid ?

 

 

BTW, I have had no dealings with these axxxxles for years.

Your advice is much appreciated.

If is only paranoia if they aren't out to get you.

If they are out to get you it is realism.

 

Likely they have a "calling machine" but when you answered no staff to connect to, so they dropped the call.

 

No problem, as :

If they don't call again, why worry?

If they call again and you don't get connected (again) : why worry?

If they call again and you get connected say "I don't give my personal details to people who cold call me. Feel free to write to me if you think you have the right person. If you aren't sure you have the right person : stop calling me 'on the off chance'

 

They may come up with all sorts of excuses, but just keep coming back to : "I don't give my personal details to people who cold call me. Feel free to write to me if you think you have the right person" .....

 

Expect them to say "we need to have the correct address" : say "if you don't have my correct address I'm not sure I'm the person you are looking for" and repeat the "don't give out personal details" until it sinks in at their end.....

 

So, however it pans out : no need to feel freaked out by this.

Report them. Theyre not allowed to make silent calls. They used to do this as a way of getting people to contact them instead.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
