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.  7

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

Anyone come across anything similar?

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.

Royal Mail probably sold to him... they do things like that.  39

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!
