      I received a call from this number which seemed legit. They asked me some questions about charities which I was happy to answer then they went through a list of companies asking me if I would like to get a call from the companies. I said no to each one and now for the past 2 weeks I am receiving calls from these companies. So after explicitly saying no they gave my details anyway.

      They called but my phone screened the number as "Suspected Scam" so I didn't answer it. The call went to voicemail. I checked the voicemail butbit was just 5seconds of silence. After reading all the reviews on this page I will be blocking the number. I too signed a petition but request they don't call me... yet they still did.

    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from? accumulates new spam and scam numbers on a daily basis. However, the user is the greatest contributor of new numbers! Therewith, you provide the knowledge necessary to avoid being ripped off. Furthermore, the categorisation and analysis of the callers nature and, above all, your rating of the number will climax in the tellows score which will convey whether the caller is trustworthy or dubious. The greatest advantage lies in sharing all avaiable information on a fraudulent number and, thereby, warning the people of looming dangers before they even lift the receiver.
