Very nasty threat, get on to the Police and the Police can contact BT and see if those who called were from overseas or UK, if overseas I doubt much action could be done but if UK I would hope some action would be taken. It was a rather nasty threat.

I used to get loads of junk faxes in the olden days, I get the odd text but no calls but I had thought of getting myself a premium rate phone number, not an expensive one, couple of quid a minute would do, then I'd be happy to chat about PPI for as long as they wanted - someone did tell me that it'd not be all the legal though.

They were UK based as they didn't have Indian accents but scouse so they will be Liverpool or Merseyside based. I have phoned ofcom regarding TPS and they then refered me to the Internal Commission Office who then logged my complaint and told me to contact my service provider and also the police which I am going to do today, although I will leave the police out of it for now, because I do not have much faith in them, they usually only act after the event, not before, as we find out on the news time and time again.

"Hello, Have you got ten minutes for me to tell you about our exciting range of kitchens?"

My reply a) "Yes, if you have ten minutes first for me to tell you about the joy that Jesus could bring into your life."

My reply b) "Yes, but I think you ought to be aware that I am naked as I listen to you."

My reply c) "Yes, but first I need to go through some security questions with you..."
