Also saying they are from welcome finance
Had calls from this number but guy on other end of phone said he was from Welcome finance and have read on another forum that this number also claims to be Natwest. Obvioulsy a scam as you wouldn't have 3 companies operating from same phone number.

not a Scam
I think this is a genuine marketing call from NPower, or agents working for them. I just ignore them. They get numbers from all over the place, mainly off the internet. Lets face it , we all leave our email address and mobile numbers all over the place for various stuff and reasons. It's easy for these marketing people to buy lists or find out numbers from social network sites etc.

What a load of trash!! They have been ringing 'virgin numbers' - unlisted anywhere!! They trawl randomly, and may filter via TPS - but that's all. One day, it will be illegal.

N-power sales call
Like other comments here this is a cold sales call from N-power!

They will keep phoning you until you answer (i caved in after a MONTH).

Just answer the call and say 'Hello Npower!' that will confuse them! Then ask them never to call you again.

Easy, if you don't believe you gave these people permission to call you (telemarketing) then simply go on-line or telephone the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and report this number and frequency of calls. If it's upsetting or worrying you please remember to say so, or if on-line enter that in the choices box provided for the report. Consider registering with TPS (Telephone Preference Service) - again easily done in seconds on-line, and the companies will not be allowed to call you without permission.

Online Competion Entrants Beware!
I entered some online competions yesterday and have been bombarded with calls from this number as well as several others today. One was within half an hour of submitting my details. They obviously share out any details given, so think twice about giving your number when entering comps!

Two calls so far today
No idea how they got my number as I rarely give it out and had my number removed from marketing directories but I think after a while you automatically go back on. In the past when I've been bombarded with sales calls I have accepted the call but left the phone on my desk whilst I carry on working i.e. I don't say anything. If they waste my time interrupting me whilst I'm working - and when I'm not - then I will waste theirs! This worked and they didn't bother calling again. You can hear them saying 'hello' repeatedly which is quite amusing (a very, very small part of me felt sorry for them but I don't think they consider that when they harass you with calls so that feeling soon subsides). Not ever accepting the call doesn't however seem to put them off as I think they have targets for the number of calls they do regardless of whether someone answers or not. I wish I could do this for junk mail that I get repeatedly through my door from the same company too.

These are scammers
If you read all the posts on this and other sites regarding this number, they are "Welcome Finance, your Bank (but they do not know which one!!!) a finance company and a Debt Collection agency". Rather obviously, no-one is all those things - they are simply scammers trolling for your personal data.
Answer the call and blow a very loud referee's whistle!!

My first call
Got my first call from these tonight, my daughter answered and they asked for me by name....! After much faffing leaving them hanging on, she hung up. But curiosity got the better of me and I did 1471, wrote the number down and rang it - most definitely NPower You can call a number and leave a message for them to remove you from their marketing database.
I have no desire to get anything off these so if they dare call me again, they will get told to get lost!

Calls
Had 2 calls yesterday both of which i missed, had one just now which i answered but they put the phone down. I am going to change my voicemail to say I do not answer call from numbers i don't know and if it is a genuine call they should leave a message, if its a cold call not to ring back. Hope this will save me lots of time and constant hassel of dealing with these people.

Unfortunate how they want to make money in annoying people.

Basically if you want the calls to stop you have to phone their number and ask to stop, in which case that phone call WILL BE CHARGED

More worryingly though, is how they got hold of my mobile number which I rarely give out either written, or otherwise. Even when I do provide my mobile number, I give strict instructions not to pass it on to any third party! I can only assume that some underhanded Company has sold on my details!

I am getting calls every single day - and I do mean calls - and they never answer. Just silence then they hang up. I have done an online complaint to Ofcom. contact to complain

If enough people complain maybe just maybe Ofcom will do something about it. It only takes a few minutes to complete their complaint form.

Mobile App to Block Numbers
If you have an Android phone download the app called Call Control. It works great on my phone and blocks whatever numbers (including 01214235640) you choose. All they get is a message saying I'm busy and to try again later lol

This is the latest in a long line of unwanted callers. It started yesterday with 1 call to landline and 2 to mobile, today 2 to mobile so far. Don't answer any of them because if you do there's no-one there. Getting on my nerves.

Your mobile number could have been reallocated from someone else, so they might have already had you on record..... or, the place you bought it off might have sold your details - that happened to me when I swapped from Vodafone to Orange about 15 years ago. I rang the shop up I bought the new service through (not directly through Orange) and complained, and the spam stopped.
