Guy said he was from hmrc and I had been chosen to trial a new service for checking your pension entitlement online. He wanted my email address so I could be sent the link. Refused telling him I didn't know him from Adam and anyway the HMRC have my email so can contact me themselves if they wish. He hung up pretty quick.

Just had a call from this no. Didn't recognize it but picked it up then hung up straight away as recognized the quiet no talking call, although heard a very faint voice after a few seconds. Waste of energy.. usually I just don't answer or pick up to put the phone back down straight away. Never make any conversation with them... Not worth it.

Received a call from this number on our land line at 20.45 this evening. They wanted to do a survey. Not happy they have our number and told the caller we were not interested. We are registered with the TPS, and are also ex directory, so how do these people have our number.

My 8yr old daughter just got a call from this number and told her they where from CBBC (children's channel) and they would ring back in 30 minutes. These people are sick and now making children who answer the phone think TV people are calling them. Someone really needs to stop these idiots and either give them a massive fine or jail time.

Its ipsos morri guys. Its not at all suspect. All the recent polls regarding the elections were done by them. They do surverys for everyone from local councils to student surveys and even HMRC. These surverys play a huge part in gathering data rhat we see on the news. If you have time just do a survey. Chance to get your voice heard!

They just called my phone, I got suspicious and rang off, then looked it up on here. These companies try to keep you on the phone as long as possible so that they can take your money from the call. Not sure how they do it, but we got told at work that this happens. Its a scam, just don't answer it anymore.

IPSOS Mori - questions or complaints regarding our telephone contact with you please contact our Telephone Requests Section on [email protected] This email address can also be used to request that we cease any further future calls to your telephone number.

On some studies your contact details will have been provided by the organisation that has commissioned the research. However, on most research conducted via the telephone, telephone numbers are generated using a process known as "random digit dialling". This involves generating a phone number by randomly adding the last set of digits to known valid area codes and exchange numbers to produce a telephone number. Other than the approximate geographical location of this number based on the area code and telephone exchange, nothing else is known about the number. It may be a public telephone box, business, fax machine etc. We do this to ensure we reach a genuine cross section of the public.

Yes, it's legit. It's ipsos MORI. Completely legitimate - see the two posts above. Ipsos MORI were instrumental in the implementation of TPS. They do work for a vast range of companies including government departments.

If they ask for an email address it's to send an informative email. If they ask for age groups, ethnicity etc it's because most research involves speaking with representative demographics. It's so sad we are all so suspicious these days. I only know better because I am from Edinburgh and know lots of people who have worked for them. Usually all they want is your opinions.

Young male caller, Scottish accent, stating that he was conducting a survey from HMRC around changes to small business' being introduced by the government and asked if id received a letter from HMRC. I said i hadn't and he asked if my company was still trading and how many employees I had. He clearly didn't understand my reply, asked me hold while he spoke to a supervisor and then thanked me and said that I wasn't suitable for the survey. Don't think call was anything sinister but due to his lack of understanding it was obvious that he was just reading off a questionnaire rather than being an HMRC rep.
