Told them I had loads & loads of loans. Absolute fortune. Kept them on the phone for ages... Before letting on I'm the lender!
Just had an unsolicited call from the refund team, on 01138591300, I was driving at the time but hey, you call me on my unlisted mobile you have no idea where I am or what I'm doing. You make those choices then you fully deserve the mouthful of abuse you receive.
Got call from them this morning (May 25th) - was immediately suspicious of war-dialling due to background conversation before the guy realised he'd got through.
Was informed that they were 'the refund team here to help me claim back my PPI, I must have heard about it on the TV'.
I've never taken out PPI so I informed him of this & hung up.
Just had a call from 'Matthew from the refund team' to arrange my refund for PPI. I less than politely told him that I was have never taken out PPI, asked how he got my number and was met with silence.
When I informed him that the conversation was over he tried the 'oh this guy doesn't want his money back, I can't believe it' line and hung up.
Cold calling wastes of oxygen, they're unprofessional chancers so don't bother answering your phone!
You should also tell them that if they have your number and you want it removed from their databases that they have 40 days to comply and respond in writing from the second you make that request, otherwise they are in breach of the data protection act. Hope this helps.
I didnt bother answering but thanks to you guys for starting this thread! Ive recently applied for a loan through tesco, havent agreed it though as there advertised 6.0% loan is a load of rubbish, you have to hit certain points on their system to qualify for it. although ive never had a loan before and all my HP has been paid in advance, no credit cards the best they could offer was 10% ... ludacris thanks for your help though i wont bother wasting my time calling them back
Had a missed call from this number on June 7th; reading this forum it ties in with the fact that I have had a lot of junk email about PPI recently too. I'm very careful about who I give my email address and mobile number to - particularly the latter, which makes me wonder who is selling on information.
01138591300 just had a call from this number a scam company as i used to work for i-smart who reclaim the PPI, If you want it doing dont go trough scam artists like those comapnies go start to the ombudsman service as they do it for no charge and you get everything back what you are owed, also i dont know why they said and finance in the last 20 years as it only goes back to 2000.
These nuisance PPI companies always talk like they KNOW that you are owed money back.
On the occasions that I don't tell them to go away, I ask them to give me details on the loan that I was owed PPI on.
Funnily enough, they never can answer that question!
definitely a scam
i am 16 so have never taken out a loan or anything of that nature in my life and got this phone call on my mobile today.
i told them where to stick their refund and held the phone up to the fire alarm and pressed the test button
they hung up pretty fast!
