Last Wednesday I got an automated phone call from some outfit claiming that I was entitled to a grant for a new boiler, they also did solar panels and to press 2 to speak to an advisor. Their phone number was withheld.My phone number is registered with the TPS of course so I shouldn't get that type of call.

Last Thurday I had the same phone call.

Last Friday I had the same phone call.

I've just had the same phone call again. So this time I pressed 2 to get through to someone. I asked them for the name of their company. They said with a very strong accent what I think was Green Deal Scheme. I doubt if that's their genuine name as that's the name for the grant scheme.

I then asked for their phone numer. They didn't give it and they phone went dead.

 

However this time I could see the phone number. It's one which has been reported many times for this sort of phone call.

But I have just reported my calls as above to the Information Commissioners Office

I hate those recorded message thingies he has my sympathies

It's all sorted now.

Well done 'eldest son of Yogi'

I hope you battered them into submission

I have an unlisted number and am registered with TPS.

I have been known to get very grumpy with cold callers.

 

 To El for reporting them. The more complaints to the ICO, the more chance of something being done to stop them.

I don't blame you.

Hubby has been getting pestered by calls from PPI insurance people on his mobile. It's automated messages, so can't even have a rant at them.

Caller Display is my friend. If I don't recognise the number, I don't answer until I've checked it out on Whocallsme.

 Most of the time, I love it, but weeds are horrible!

I once read that weeds are simply plants which are growing in the wrong place, so maybe it's not their fault?

 It's a possibility.

*night owls* sorry I missed you all! sweet dreams to everyone who has turned in for the night.

I've had a busy day, and went for a long soak in the bath with some delicious molton brown bath salts- I've been promoted from crab, to penguin! It's really embarrassing too. To think I used to do that work out DVD regularly and it didn't make me ache- clearly it has been a lot longer than I thought since I last did it
Moonie, your bath smilies are tremendous thank you

Yogi I'm glad your stomach settled, and hope your cupboards are fully stocked again

Hopefully I'll be able to catch up with you all better tomorrow

Good morning everyone. The sun is shining!

Thanks El.

Summer, I hope you are no longer walking like a penguin and your muscles have stopped aching. What sort of workout did you do, is it particularly strenuous?

Gardening awaits today, and I'm quite looking forward to it.

Have a good day, everyone.
