331 on dial back on the phone.

by jova54   February 26, 2010  

Had a really weird phone this afternoon from bloke who's intention appeared to be waste my time as he apparently either wanted to sell me a training course or warn me that my house was going to be invaded by anacondas. Confused

When I did a 1471 to check what number he had called from it was 331.

Anyone come across anything similar?

was the training course about surviving an anaconda attack?

Could it have been an overseas call? Might have been from someone in a call centre on the other side of the world who was a bit bored

Normally I give cold-callers short shrift but I was bored so I played along until it got weird.

Not only did he know my name and address but also my post code.

The line was pretty rubbish and although he said his name was Roger I very much doubt that was his real name.

I did a Google search for 331 and on 'Whocallsme' but nothing came up.

Did Nightrider 2013 for Parkinson's UK, doing it again this year just for the fun of it and to raise more money.

Royal Mail probably sold to him... they do things like that. Thinking

Royal Mail's database covers addresses and post codes, not names.

BUT, check this out.

www.123people.co.uk

Comes in a handy CD format too. Ships to India in 3-4 days! Just the thing for cold callers and coyboy marketing gangs.

Who give them their information? You do, via your council!
