    Silent call from this number 17 Nov. Seeing the reports here it's the same guy who has phoned my number several times and from different numbers, some local in Hampshire. I usually play along for as long as I can keep up the pretence of being worried about condensation in my loft from sub-standard insulation, which he would be willing to fix, and even quote for spray-on foam onto the rafters. Clearly a scam. He sometimes asks if I make my own decisions or refer to the family - obviously looking for solitary homeowners.

    Phonecall from: 01237736300 at 11.42am yesterday - Thursday 19th November '20. My landline number has been ex-directory for over 60yrs.

    Pleasant adult male voice with no noticeable accent, unpressured, bright opening:
    "Hi, it's Simon calling you back about - " . I forget the exact wording, except "lagging in the loft" "government", because I interrupted his sentence to ask him mildly: "Who are you speaking to?" After a moment's hesitation he put his phone down. It seemed to me that question had wrong-footed him in a bad intention, rather than there being some honest mistake . Now I sadly know there's a corrupt group in the Bideford area.

    Thank you - and to the individual people who shared what happened, especially cowardly intimidation. SURELY the offending numbers could be incapacitated in some way? I shall ask the TPS when I contact them about 0123 7736 300.

    A guy called Simon rang told me he was from a company in the area supplying home boiler cover, l told him l had cover he hung up.
    Obviously some sort of scam, it concerns me that they can ring my number as l have been ex-directory for over 20 years. Don't get involved in conversation hang up.

    This morning, a man claiming that his name was Simon, called asking whether I owned the property.

    When I asked why he was calling, he claimed to be from a loft insulation company based in London and again asked if I owned the property rudely.

    I made him aware that I'm a Surveyor by profession before he hung up.

    Just had a cold call from 01237736300 saying they were a loft insulation company and mentioned Government incentive. As I live in a Housing Association home I asked how hey had obtained my data and the reply was - from a Government authorised list! I said if this had been the case they would know this property was not privately owned - the well spoken man became flustered, apologised and rang off. Clearly this is another scam. I have received several scam calls over the past few days from this number and also from 08008021641 and 02920098280 - which seems odd as before I didn't receive any so it seems something is going on. How do these fraudsters obtain private telephone numbers and why doesn't BT stop them at source and/or follow through in investigating them as clearly they are out to con people - especially the elderly - into parting with their money. As we are all supposedly protected by the Data Protection Act clearly these scam organisations are flagrantly breaking the Law!

    Had a request about medical Emergency. I have an elderly neighbour who uses a company that would call me if she fell over. Checked her and she was fine. Tried recalling the number 01237 736300 without any success. Consider this as a dangerous number

    Simon said he was calling about loft insulation inferred that I had enquired about it. However I live in a ground floor flat !!! Never got the chance to tell him as he wouldn’t stop talking, I had to shout over him, he put the phone down

    A polite male enquired, ‘if as in the area did I have any requirement for replacement windows, roofing or driveway repairs, then added gas boiler replacement’! He disconnected when I challenged him as to whether ‘I had asked him to ring as I do not deal with any unsolicited calls’?

    I also had the call about loft insulation from "John" - a well-spoken man who seemed authentic at first, apparently knowing that we had recently had some work on the roof done. He claimed that loft insulation could cause mould and other damage. He claimed to be offering a free visit and mentioned the government's scheme to subsidise home insulation work. The give-away for me was that he claimed his notes said that we hadn't had a roof inspection recently - but we had.

    Called to say they know we had cavity wall insulation, which in small cases can cause damp, would like to come and quote with no cost to us, the loft as it was not included before. Asked who the company name was and they rang off.

    I answered the phone the first time and said ‘hello’ twice. They rang again 10 minutes later and I let it ring to go to the answering machine, but they hung up. I will definitely be ignoring and blocking this number.

    Male caller said his name was John and apparently was returning a call about lagging. I said I hadn't contacted anyone so he must have a wrong number and I hung up.
    I have since reported it to ICO complaints.

    Absolutely certainly a scam. John called to arrange an appointment for someone to visit and examine the loftspace. Very insistent, asked a lost of questions. When I refused to provide detailed answers, he said that he would arrange for his supervisor to call me back within 15 minutes.
    About 10 minutes later John called again and started the same rigmarole -- what he did not know was that we have two different phone lines. I challenged him and he hung up on me.
    Another 10 minutes later someone else called and agressively said they wanted access to our property and if I did not grant it he would send me a large invoice which I would have to pay.
    I said send me the details -- which he refused to do!

    I just had a call from this number saying they were an environmental company dealing with damp and condensation caused by loft insulation. Said they would send a rep to investigate, they couldn’t answer my questions as I was suspicious so I cut the call off. I’m sure this is a scam because they didn’t call back.
