Insurance Phone calls
The range of numbers 1618142xxx seems to be mostly used for telesales ring centers and has been reported with PPI, cover claims, and financial marketing. Just block the number if you're not interested. (I use the app from these pages and haven't had any problems.) Did they ring
This is not a legitimate UK government department; they are calling from different numbers all over the country routed through a server to make it appear as if they are from different cities. Asking questions about private health cover, how much I pay per month, and who my provider is, could be really bad for someone
I received an automated call from a number I didn't recognize today, stating that my national coverage would be cancelled and there was a warrant out for my arrest. The message wasn't clear, and it said to press option one to talk to an agent. I blocked the number. It must have been a scam
I ignored the scammer's final threat that my national cover numbers will be terminated & 'do not disregard this ring or there will be legal trouble' [!]. It's total twaddle. I got the same message on my home telephone in March purporting to be from the Bank of England!
I got a pre-recorded message from a scammer posing as a serious, older person saying there was an issue with my national insurance number and fraudulent activity. They told me to press one for help (likely to a premium rate number) and then to ask myself to share my personal details. Definitely a scam
This range of numbers, 1312362xxx, seems to be mostly used for telesales, collision chasers, and PPI cover marketing. I use the app from these pages to block them, and haven't had any problems. Did they ring you with the same number, or a new one?
This is a scam. I received a pre-recorded message threatening me with court action and the removal of my national insurance number. Pressing one would put you through to an officer. This is particularly threatening and will cause many vulnerable people to press one.
