Stop The Spam! Top 3 Of The Week


Actions speak louder than words. Cold calling is more effective than other ways of advertising. Is it? Nothing is more annoying than spam calls in the early morning or at night …

Here are this week’s top three callers:
1. 01143072406 from London with a tellows score of 7
2. 07520905078 – mobile phone number with a tellows score of 6
3. 01477536273 from Holmes Chapel with a tellows score of 7

15 calls a day? No problem! The number on rank 1 is trying to provide dodgy lotteries.

User Richdragon reported:

Caller said he was calling regarding a competition to win iPhone on-line which I may have done as the caller confirmed my email address as well as obviously knowing my mobile numer which I rarely give out and never to online competitions. I asked them to send info in writing. I asked them to stop calling but they still keep calling. These people are a pain, are a pain. Yes I said it twice maybe they read these reports so maybe I can waste a bit of their time too.

phillip watkins reported us further details about this untrustworthy company:

vat number 880231931 customer care number 08448802598 btb european services limited www.eurochance100.co.uk i dunno bout this but sounds to good to be true

The number on rank two is trying to get people to call them back and put them in a queue. Beware – this might be a cost trap! By the American accent of the answering machine it is highly probably that your are calling overseas.

auteurneuf reported:

Got a call, no response when answered. Called back- straight to an American automated message saying I was 2nd in the queue so promptly hung up.

On rank three we have a cold caller with a Holmes Chapel number.

Asked for Mr. Rich Lewis. Said not on this number, he said I’m very sorry bye. Quite polite actually! Sounded Northern and like a call centre.

Stay tuned!

You Can´t Teach An Old Spammer New Tricks – Top Of The Flops


It’s Friday evening and we’re ruling off this week’s spamming with the top of the phone spam flops:

01482489776 – with a tellows score of 7
01702356720 – with a tellows score of 7
02073451299– with a tellows score of 8

Still number one: our blank message and ping call friends from Hull with a busy phone line and an empty skull.

Still number two: the cold callers from Southend on Sea who neither have the most excellent communication skills nor can they deal with rejection.

New number three: a lottery for an ipad or an amount of money. An African proverbs says “You cannot win a lottery without buying a ticket”, this one will cost you only 44 £.

Richie reported this week:

competition as usual, 44 quid for a share in 800+ lottery tickets, after a bit of social engineering found out it is this company


address of the dtd euro services however is one of the offices in roxwell house, argall avenue, Leyton London E10 7QY

Have a nice undisturbed weekend and do not let the cold callers get your money!
