Just phoned me. I nearly answered as this is my area code but didn't recognise number so left it. Facts international are a bonefide company and I know many people who work for them. They are a market research company employed by banks and other companies. They don't try and sell you anything and are not a scam - just irritating if you don't want your peace interrupted! I bank with RBS who seem to use them a lot, sigh........

Keep calling me to ask me about my bank, apparently....Linked to RBS group. I have an account with RBS, but very little money or usage with the account so I am not worried. Called the bank directly with known verified numbers and all is fine with the account. I will be ignoring this number from now on.

These people have rung twice - yesterday and this morning. I answered yesterday and they wanted me to take part in a survey lasting 15 - 20 minutes, about my bank. I said it was not convenient. They have just rung again but I did not answer. I will not discuss my bank online. These calls are a nuisance!

Got a call from this number yesterday. They asked for our daughter by her maiden name - this is now 4 years out of date, and she hasn't lived here for over 10 years. I know that she banks with Natwest, but she has told them each time she has moved house.
So it seems that they are using old information.
Told them simply that she no longer lives here, and told them no more than that.

Just missed a call from these guys. having looked them up I'm glad we missed it. We are on TPS, but this company brazonly states that TPS does not apply to them as they are a survey company.

If you want to complete background on them a commentor on this page published a thorough background on them. http://www.phonespamfilter.co.uk/search.php/01233648537 posted 14.2.22 (feb 22, 2014) just above it is a huge post from a staff member of the company.

Also, it's actually very easy to report these calls online. At the Information Commisioners Office, www.ico.org.uk/concerns/marketing/20/ Note you can also report emails, silent calls and a variety of nusiance contacts. Also on their website, you can read of action they've taken against companies, including investigations and huge fines. They also have an easy online survey for reporting these calls at https://www.snapsurveys.com/swh/surveylogin.asp?k=138312369469 which takes less than 5 minutes to complete. You can find this through their website (above) if you prefer.

You can register on the Telephone Preference Service online. http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/number_type.html It takes about a minute to complete the form.
If you google how to report nuisance calls there are several helpful links.

Within two weeks calls from Facts International started....Don't mind they are legit for 'household names',but object that my 'new' number is already in the public domain-one of the prime reasons I changed is to halt these calls!

Landline phone rang out but as I'm ill, I couldn't get to it quickly enough before it stopped ringing. This call came just as I was falling into a much needed sleep. I resent cold-calling like this, and in any case, no amount of surveying is going to win banks any of the respect they have so deservedly lost.

Do some revenge calling on freephone 0500 396 999.
It is the number that this firm gives out so that the victims can check that the firm is kosher.
[You shall then be given a 'phone number that you have to pay for to contact them to ask for your number to be removed from their data base.]

Or, as I do, pretend to be a little deaf/have a bad line your end, get them to spell eveything out; just getting their name nearly right can take ten minutes; use it frequently, and ask them to tell you if you have got it wrong. Start a conversation about pets, or anything you can feign an interest in. Ask them questions.
I miss those calls from ersatz Microsoft warning that my computer had an error: I had my more refined response all planned for the next call received, but they seem to have removed me from their data base.

A call from Natwest asking to speak with son Nick who moved from this address 19 years ago. Believing it to be his bank as we still get his monthly Statements, I gave the caller his number.

I have never banked with RBS, so assume it is just a scam. My advice is - IF you speak to someone asking about your Bank, just hang up. DO NOT enter a conversation with them. Hang up and block the call. Banks do not contact customers by 'phone, the use the reliable old method, and stick a stamp on it.

Twice this number has called now within a month, saying they are doing research on behalf of LLoyds Bank. Not impressed! We are constantly being told by "all banks" not share any information over the phone regarding our banking, yet it seems Llyods and many other banks part of the RBS group are calling people, utterly wrong. On one hand they say don't give information over the phone, next they instruct marketing companies to call us. I did not give any information and would never do so. I was told I would have my name removed, but we will see.

The woman said she was calling on behalf of Lloyds TSB - my bank- and wanted to know if I would take part in a survey? The survey would take 15 minutes and I would need access to a computer to do something on Lloyds TSB website.

I'm ex-directory. Presumably they got my phone numbr from Lloyds TSB?
