Called my personal mobile today 11/11/17. I trusted Thames Water with my mobile last werk after our water was cut off by a big leak. Where is Data Protection and the ICO and the TPS when you need them. My personal number, my data.
I don't know this number or why it should call me. The above comments have made me remember I, too, have been in recent contact over a period of two weeks with Thames Water about a drain. After that I got a lot of calls and messages from what seemed to be their office wanting my feedback comments. Part of my calls to them involved telling them that I would be out all day and how to get access to the drain etc. Now I feel unsure of who may be getting my number.
Persistent calls from this number to my mobile-always silent. I too have been in touch with Thames Water about a leak and they use my mobile to text me. How can they do this in today's sensitivity about personal data?
Rang my mobile which I am very careful who I give it to ??This number 01212601019 is no doubt a scam and very dodgyDisgusting people scumbags that do this !!I have notified the police and my M P who are investigating I may take legal advice also !!
Some guy with very stilted speech claiming to be from some 'authority' wanted to talk me about my 'recent contact with Severn Trent' - I told him I haven't been in touch with ST and he said 'sorry to have called you' and I put the phone down
Will they Ever give up Ruddy Rang me today When I checked who Rang Sick these calls but as I don't know Anyone with this number didn't answer my house phone Same Reg my mobile Wish The GOVERMENT Could stop these unwanted callers or Ruddy Fine the Ruddy Companies, If We public Want any help Am sure we would do our own Search of a Reputable company etc etc just a nuisance my advice NEVER Answer these numbers time wasters!!!!!
Called to ask about a phone call I made to Thames water!how do they get this information.the scum asked me why I called Thames water) wanted to know why I called and I thought it was a genuine call as I had called Thames water.so when I said it was about a leak and he said I am typing I realised it's a scam so I hung up!please don't answer any unknown calls.if it is important they will leave a message to call back.
Girl with an English accent rang, said was enquiring about a debit/credit card payment to Southern Water. When I said we pay by direct debit, she backed off straight away, claiming a mistake on her screen. Something dodgy - at best an attempt at a survey, at worst some kind of fraud/scam.
reading the above comments assures me that not giving any time to this number that rang me earlier was a smart choice. So many calls now trying to scam people. crooks don't need to break into your house any more to steal your hard earned, and i'm probably missing important calls from docs or hospital by not answering unidentified numbers. Please government get a grip on this crime ASAP!!!!
I too have had work done by Thames Water and have had several calls from this number since. I assumed they were genuine but now I know otherwise!! They either hang up without speaking or just ramble on if you say you are busy!! Bloody pests.
I have just had a broken sewer repaired, carried out via my insurance company & received a call from this number yesterday. As I did not recognise the number I didn’t respond but looked it up & see that many other people have had calls from this number following work related to water problems.
This number called my mobile today. As I didn't recognise the number I looked it up on your site and saw the warnings. Additionally, I did call Thames Water a couple of weeks back and I note the various references to that utility in your comments on the number.
