This number called after 7.30pm trying to do a survey. Told them not interested as they were invading my privacy and that the telephone number they had was Ex Directory - Why and how does this happen when I do not give my number out to anyone or either list on any documents that request it. The number is with held from the Polling regisgter

THIS IS A SCAM! There is no such government dept. as Dept of Energy & Climate Control (which they say they are calling from). The correct name of the department ends in 'Change' not Control. Trying to bamboozle people into thinking they are legit when they most certainly are not.

I received a call fom this number, but didn't answer. I have also had an email a few days prior saying that a company called CMA were using a company called GfK to conduct research on gas & electric companies, and that they'd written to my energy provider to get my details, using their legal powers. I'm quite disappointed that my energy company can give my details out for what essentially sounds like market research.

My wife received at call just before 6.00pm this evening, with the caller asking if she was....and reading out her name in full, including middle names. We are ex-directory, so how did they know both her name and phone number, which we never give out other than to OFFICIAL sources?

Those creeps posing as CMA rang but I don't pick up unknown calls -- thanks to this website I checked the number and see others are getting these scam calls. I had one of their letters first. If CMA exists as a government agency then they had better find out where the scammers are because they are fraudulently using the real phone number on their bogus letters.

My bank says they'd never give out my details. Like the others my full name appeared on the letter. Who is selling our details, names, phone numbers? Police need to investigate.

Also I am registered with the people who are supposed to prevent these calls or the caller gets fined 2000. I told them to call me back later, and then I blocked their number.

Got a call from this number at 17.30 today (Sunday!) and the female said she was calling from GFK regarding a financial survey. As she paused her prepared speech to take a breath I quickly said I wasn't interested, apologised and ended the call. Like many others on here I am ex-directory and registered with the TPS. If that doesn't prevent market research calls (as per their pasted statement above)then it flippin' well OUGHT TO! I've now marked the number on my phone so it will be ignored next time......still a nuisance though :(

I received a call on my mobile at around 6:30pm on Tue 26th May from a young, London-accented female claiming to be from GFK, and was conducting a survey on the EU Commission ... I stopped her spiel to ask her where she got my number from (I only disclose it to a select few) and she said it was randomly generated, ie taken from a 'phone book' (though I'm not in any phone book) and the last two digits reversed. Needless to say this number is now in my reject list.

Most of these callers are spam and having a ex directory service mean nothing when the caller just needs to change a few digits of any phone number and randomly ring your number.

Received a call from this number in the afternoon. The guy asked straight away if I was driving or if I was in a vehicle and his call was putting me in a dangerous situation, without even introducing himself. I asked him to say that again because I really didn't get what he wanted actually to know. He just repeated the same sentence, I asked who he was and where did they get my number from and with a very annoyed tone he said that was doing a market research and again asked if I his call was putting me in a dangerous situation. I said that it was not dangerous but it was interrupting my lunch break so asked him to calm back another time. They did, but obviously I didn't pick up.
