Been hassling me for ages to get a Smart Meter. With emails phone calls and letters. Stop bullying! Take no for an answer for once and I may just relent. I wish they'd just bugger off. My phone block most numbers due to being rung up by losers like this.
I rang the number back after reading the comments below & it is indeed a recorded message from EDF offering a smart meter. You get the option to press 1 if you don't want a smart meter & a different voice says you'll be removed from the lists but it may take up to 24hrs. Worth doing then - particularly as the government's driving these companies to push the take up of these meters that no-one seems to want!
Nuisance calls about smart meter installation by Edf. I was getting a missed call twice a day with no message left. I called the number back today and it gave me the option to be removed from the list. Here‚Äôs hoping it worked!
When I answered, The annoying asshole hung up. Why don't these tossers get a real job, Maybe even one they can do. I'll mark it as harassing, But it really just saddens me that I cannot kick their ass.
I've answered at least 3 calls which then went dead. I suspected they were automated calls to check if the phone was answered. Seems that I was right, As I just got a call from EDF offering me a meter. As I phoned EDF on Mon to advise that 1 more such call would result in the loss of my a/c and last night got another dead call, They are going to lose my a/c asap
Persistent EDF call centre saying I need to make an appointment to have smart meter installed - told them unless compulsory I won't/don't want one - have asked numerous times for number to be removed to no avail
Said my internet was being disconnected they had sent notification - I challenged her, Very authentic as back ground sounds of office sounds, Told them I don‚Äôt have BT internet, Then she said all service providers gio through BT, But when I challenged her about notification she disconnected call!!
Somebody from Tel 01914265602 called me at 11:11 hours this morning. When I answered nobody would respond to me. I find calls of this nature both intimidating and vexatious. The authorities should simply delete all numbers operating in this fashion in order to protect the public generally and in particular to protect those who are vulnerable, Ageing and/or in poor health.
Rude and unnecessarily aggressive call from telemarketer who had the impertinence to question my intention to ponder my choice around getting a so-called smart meter. As a result of this call, I am also now also pondering my choice of a new energy supplier. Bravo EDF, Your moronic hard core sales tactics have failed spectacularly
Repeated calls with no message, Probably from EDF trying to bully people into having unreliable smart meters, Which save nothing. I never gave permission for EDF to contact me like this. Never leaving a message is actually quite sinister
EDF Energy trying for the umpteenth time to get me to have a smart meter. They don't even know how to use my answerphone to leave a message... Not so smart. I have now rung them and pressed 1 to hopefully cancel this harassment.
I have call blocker so any number coming through should be an announced call. Only number that comes straight through on my landline is my dad so when phone rings with no announcement I assume it is dad. EDF are not using the announced facility and I've already told them 3 times I do not want a smart meter - have now had to block them to stop the daily calls.
EDF smart meter, I to, D them not to call back as they keep waking me up calling, F##nkin useless, Free of charge my arse my meter charge is 30 p per day per meter, I don't need to know what I'm using per hour I can work that out with my old meter that use to be 7 p per day, Another rip of scam from a crap third party fuckin call centre probably owned by a torie
EDF my own utility supplier trying to force me to get a smart meter. Not only have I answered and said no, I have this week called and asked to have my name removed. Was told this take 7 days and they have upped the calls since! 4 days left!!
Taken from Ofgem website: Are smart meters mandatory? While we and the government think that all consumers will benefit from smart meters, They aren‚Äôt compulsory and you can choose not to have one. Choosing not to have a smart meter may mean you don‚Äôt have access to all the available tariffs on the market, Some of which could be cheaper. If you don‚Äôt want to have a smart meter now, You will still be able to have one installed for free at a later date.
Very annoying - I joined EDF last week and since then I kept receiving phone calls which I ignored until I checked the number. Next time I got the call I said that I don't want the smart meter, And the lady on the other line was very persistent trying to change my mind. Even if I asked them to not call me again, I got another phone call today. Had to block it.
Smart meter take up has not been a well received as the Government and Energy companies would have wished. Mainly because the saving they suggest you can make have been seriously inflated. Therefore they are now resorting to hard sell cold calling tactics. What they don't appear to realise is that, As a result of their nuisance calls I am going to change suppliers.
EDF calling to arrange a Smart Meter fitting. Tell them no you dont want their smart meter and they say OK. 2 weeks later they start calling again. No I don't want one. OK... 2 weeks more calls. Blocked the number now.
When I answered this call, I could hear call centre noises in the background so never gave them a chance to say anything and I put the phone down. Since reading comments on here, Have found out that it was, Probably, EDF Energy trying to get me to sign up for a Smart Meter, Which I have told them, By phone, E-mail and letter, That I do not want.
The woman claimed to be from EDF and asked to speak to the account holder, When I told the woman the account holder was unavailable and to again say why they were calling, She told me to 'xxxx off' and hung up. This is not the normal EDF contact number (an 0333 number), So obviously a third party. They need to vet their contractors to weed out the 'potty mouths.'
I rarely answer numbers I don't recognise but my brother is currently in hospital so took the call. Claimed to be EDF who have to upgrade our meter, caller blatantly denied it was for a smart meter. Don't think they will again after my answer. Blocked just in case. Thanks 180info. Great service.
I am constantly getting calls from this number. Every time I answer there is no-one there/they hang up! Getting seriously annoyed with this now. Seeing the comments that it is EDF about a Smart Meter makes sense because I did answer a call about that a while ago now, But the call got cut off halfway through so I was expecting them to call me back at some point. Number now blocked as I am sick and tired of multiple calls per day whilst I am at work!
I have received numerous calls from this number about installing a smart meter. If anyone from EDF reads this, Can you please stop harassing your customers. If we wanted one install we would contact you.
