Called my landline at 8. 05am Sat morn, So already annoyed me, They then phoned my mobile straight after, Thinking it was legit as they had my mobile number as well I answered but there was no one there.
British Gas AGAIN about annual boiler service. I will not answer this number again because I can barely understand what the person is saying and I keep saying that I have mae an appointment to suit me and do not want it done today.
Rang my landline no message left just hung up Since phoned my mobile 4 times in 2 days. I do have a gas boiler service booked since last week & have had a text reminder so no reason to keep calling I think this is one of those scams where they appear to call from a genuine number
Have received 2 calls from this number claiming to be British Gas. Calling to arrange annual service even though I had it done almost 2 months ago. Some bizarre security breach or just very poor admin?
Said they were British Gas but only had half my postcode and no info on my current boiler. Tried to persuade me to book for a service and hung up abruptly when I said I would book online instead once I knew my work schedule.
Had phone call at 9 am - see comment below. Had second phone call from same number. Caller said they were calling from British Gas and they were cancelling next week‚Äôs boiler service made several months ago. New appointment given for end of January. Have checked with British Gas on different number and original appt has indeed been cancelled and new appt registered on system. Something‚Äôs not right!!!!!
Received call at 9 a. M. Nobody spoke but line remained open for a few minutes. Heard faint talking in background just before ‚Äúthey‚Äù terminated call. I checked the number and called it back...... British Gas saying ‚ÄúYou were called earlier but sorry they weren‚Äôt able to speak to me. Nothing urgent and no need to worry‚Äù! Hmmmmm!
Said they were ringing to change my annual service for my boiler. Said she was from British Gas.. I hadn‚Äôt got an appointment. Then she asked if she had my postcode correct. It was nothing like mine! She then asked if I had a connection with another person‚Äôs name who I had never heard of. Then she went. I am tempted to block it but worried in case it‚Äôs a genuine mix up.
Called just after 9am with a recorded message asking if I was satisfied with the recent visit by an engineer, Wanting me to press 1 or 2 to respond. I have no services or contracts with British Gas, And I certainly hadn't called an engineer out or even had a visit by one, So very suspicious!!
0333 numbers are examples of a non-geographic phone numbers. These are numbers that are not linked to any locality within the UK. They were introduced in 2007 as an alternative to the traditional landlines that were usually assigned geographically through the use of a system of location-specific area codes. All 0333 numbers are landline numbers. However, unlike the ‘01’ or ‘02’ landline numbers, you cannot identify the area 0333 numbers are associated with.
