I'm TPS registered and I get calls from these spammers.
Tried to get me to "renew the washing machine warranty". The fool didn't know that my wonderful machine is 28 years old! I told him to stop chewing on the phone (he was obviously eating something at the time, the slob) and not to waste my time. I also said that I'd share his number and attempt to scam me, with others.
Call saying about my dog barking at 3am and should walk the dog more often and had a petition signed by neighbours didn't give name but I don't have a dog

Please help reverse the trend of telling callers our name before they have told us the company the work for and purpose. I had 4 calls from 05601052667 and the woman (I call not call her a lady as that insults real true genuine Ladies) She refused to confirm her name nor the name of the company nor the purpose of the call I had to ask her 4 times and she kept on wanting me to confirm my name first. I told her as she refused to be professional and introduce her company after several polite requests She must be working for a scam company hiding behind an anonymous phone number and unscrupulous business practices. She said she is not and how dare I judge her. So again I asked her to be professional for a 5th time and again she refused. I since found out from ForexGrand.com Any company who does not introduce them selves prior to confirming who I am is hiding behind unknown or strange numbers is dodgy. Stay away. They are Con MERCHANTS.
