Caller ID

Scam detected: PPI scam

⚠️ We have identified a high-risk PPI scam from the phone number 01608 645090. It's usually a recorded message informing you that you are entitled to a large payout for an accident that you had several years ago. The scammers cleverly interest you by offering you thousands in compensation.

The automated call is programmed to prompt a "Yes" response from you. This word is a trigger and will transfer the call to a human. The bogus employee will get you excited about the payment, insisting on a small setup fee to access the payout. When you pay the fee, you are unwittingly giving the scammer your credit card details, and they will clean your bank account.

  • Note that no insurance firm would ever call you to offer a payment in this way.
  • Always be suspicious if somebody offers you a large sum of money over the phone.

    Called after doing on line compare marine insurance. They use an automated system that calls then looks for an operator to take the call, if noone is available in the call centre the system hangs up then dials again and then its rinse and repeat

    You often see annoyed ppl on here saying "no one was there when I picked up" this is why

    I now have a "burner phone" that I use for all on line activity apart from the bank. £15.00 well spent

    I have had this number call 3 times today but i do not answer to numbers I don't know and if they fail to leave me a message then i take it as someone not that desperate to speak to me. Judging by some of the previous comments on here it is a call in response to insurance searching. i did indeed search a comaparison website last night for caravan insurance so I expect this clears it up for me.

    A genuine firm, CETA Insurance Ltd (https.secure.ceta.co.uk): handled the renewal of my boat insurance. I was asked to confirm my postcode, so I asked for them to confirm the policy renewal reference number. Once we had worked out which number it was, the number was forthcoming. The name of the company matched the name on my renewal document, and the premium also. The name of my dinghy was given. They had my card details (last 4 digits) exactly right, including the fact that payment had been sought and failed because the card had expired. No faults, a clear round on that call.
    I was only put off by the previous phone call, automated, asking for a call back. I waited until they called me (well, to be honest, I heard the automated call, classed it a spam, and ignored it). I find it discourteous on the part of a company looking to renew its relationship with me, that they didn't contact me in person to start with. If they try that on again next year, I'll be letting them know.

    CETA Insurance Ltd, CETA House, Cromwell Business Park, Chipping Norton, Oxon, OX7 5SR

    If you have provided your number for an 'insurance comparison', expect to get called to "discuss the best price" they are incessant, either recorded messages to ring them back or calling you to get you to take out insurance. They are obviously paid as an intermediary and get commission for passing you through to the actual insurance provider.
