Swinton are buying your details from a company called Leadx and they get your number from price comparison sites.

Cold calling
3 times today this number has phoned me, however I let it go to voicemail and they hang up! Unsolicited and therefore breaking the law as I am registered with the TPS - It is a legal requirement that all organisations (including charities, voluntary organisations and political parties) do not make such calls to numbers registered on the TPS unless they have your consent to do so. So how come this company can continue to harass people?

The TPS can't stop companies you are or have been a customer with contacting you if you inadvertently gave them consent to contact you... even if you've never been a customer they can conduct "genuine market research" whatever that means... The TPS is a bit wishy washy but if you've never been a customer and the firm is hard selling, report them... though I personally wouldn't bother without evidence.

Mary - if you gave them your number on a form you filled in they can use it to call you! Applied for anything lately and forgot to tick/untick the little box at the end?

Fit an answering machine.
My answering machine allows me to monitor incoming calls without me having to lift off. If the caller does not identify himself/herself, they usually hang up before the ans mach message has finished, I do not answer. The ans machine then dials to get the calling number and keeps a record. If it is someone I know then I lift the receiver and take the call before they hang up. Simples.

The Swinton/Colonnade business.
One time I consulted this firm for car insurance and they quoted £1,800. I got it off the web for £720.
Business-wise, they are in the last throes of decline, they are getting desperate. They have no idea how to run a business properly.
My advice is to STEER CLEAR! Don't get involved with these kind of incompetent people.
A Leeds guy who know them from way back.

Bloody Swinton!
Took out car insurance with Swinton last week, now being plagued with cold calls that I don't answer from this number! To be fair, they saved me over £400 on my insurance so I will put up with it and think about the shoes I can buy!

Be careful of these comparison websites. I specifically opted out of getting these calls and it's completely ignored by Swinton
