    Harassment call if ever there was one....they won't speak when challenged and put the phone down. Even if is legitimate they would not ask for personal details. Best to ignore and block the number...life's too short.

    A very pleasant and well spoken woman telephoned last night at about 6.45pm from this number and said she was from the Water Board doing a survey which would take 10 mins. to complete. I agreed. This morning I checked with my local Water Company and they said they were doing surveys throughout the country and she had been genuine.

    A guy with a thick Irish accent calling from Edinburgh on behalf of Welsh Water/Dwr Cymru? Okay. He said it was to discuss their new benchmarks. Didn't say anything that sounded dodgy, and was extremely polite. I'm sure it was genuine - charities have outsourced this kind of thing, after all - but as I work in a satellite office I passed him on to the main lot.

    Phoned Wednesday 7 pm purporting to represent South East Water and said they were carrying out a customer satisfaction survey that would take 10 minutes. I was too busy and suggested they called Friday morning. On Thursday I checked with SE Water who had no record of any department of theirs conducting an out of hours survey and there was nothing registered to my account to suggest I was being approached by the company. I have just had another call from the same people so told them I was not interested as SE Water think they are probably bogus and certainly not representing them.

    They were doing market research for South staffs water. They did not ask for any personal details. I.e. bank accounts or anything like that. Gentleman was very polite. Pretty sure it was genuine.

    I had a call from this number about 11.0 clock - Saturday. He sounded Asian, calling from Edinborough, and was doing a survey for Angian water. I am an AW customer. Sounded very polite and informative, so I exchanged views with him. He offered to send me the broucher explaining Anlian waters proposals to achieve carbon neutral activities which I accepted. I can't see that being a problem, but I am open to advice. WF

    They rang the other evening surveying user experience on Welsh Water. It seems legit and they followed up with a complex set of data by email for a further call.
