just had an interesting phonecall from people apparently from Precise telecom offering me some sort of deal on my telephone bill. Well from the get go i knew it was another scam call, lets say Max Rogers with a heavy indian accent gave it away. Ill admit i was a little bored so i thought i'd hear this one out and waste a little time. he went into his dialogue and i occasionally grunted non-commitally and gave nothing back. He repeatedly asked for my account details and i sadi didn't he know them as he'd phoned me with an offer...blah blah blah.

I kept playing along and asked for the address of the company, all the time sitting there googling Precise telecom which actually exists as a website company offering telecoms deals. First chap told me they were based in manchester but no actual address and i should hold the line for his manager to talk to me, i guess the manager got clued up when i asked again the address and he told me it was richmond and wouldn't give me any more details before he suddenly hung up.

So precise telecome actually exists but is the website and company legit and the scammers using it as a cover??

home

anyone any good at checking websites know if these guys are legit and i should drop them a mail and let them know they are being used by scammers.

Why bother.

Did the same myself looked up there address 331 St Margrets Road TW1 1PW quick look at Google maps, expecting something like the Telecom tower, but just got bedsit land instesd.

Number 331 is the semi with the net curtains.

Look them up they have been in business less than a year share the same address with another telecom giant I-Visionz Ltd been in business less than six months. Must be a hive of entertainment in that back bedroom.

even so the scammer didn't even know their own mail address and hung up when asked for it, which made me think they were piggy-backing another company.

Nahh, prob a genuine company, but shite sales technique / product.
My mates got a company that does the same, they get kickbacks from providers from reselling packages - mobile and office lines.
