this number called both my mobile and my landline. It rang only enough for me not to be able to reach the phone so that I would call back to check who the caller was.

Government boilers!
Recorded MSG said I needed to act quickly because hire records indicated that I haven't recived my free government boiler (I live in a council house & already have a free government boiler)

I have a BT 6500 telephone which allows me to block individual telephone numbers. What a relief!!!! I was getting called up to 4 times a day regarding "free boilers". The callers are calling from abroad and using this fictitious 0161 number so don't bother trying to call it it is unobtainable.

THEY'RE CLUTCHING AT STRAWS !
I too have been pestered by these idiots - they are simply ringing as many nos as they can in the hope of finding someone who will be interested. ** TIP - In the last call I told them that ' sorry..you're too late ..I got my government grant 6 weeks ago and have since just had my boiler fitted...' I have had no calls since. Might be worth trying this to shut them up. If not then worth using your block facility (or getting a phone which has one)

New ploy by these parasites
This is a way of getting around Caller ID (BTW this is free on BT) so you think it's a genuine call. Normally Number Withheld goes straight to answerphone. One slight help is to put the number in your phone's address list with an appropriate name (mine's Parasite!) and at least you'll know not answer it.

I answered the call from them
I strung them along and said I was interested in the boilers etc. They then took details (made up I may add) and passed me through to someone else. they tried to arrange an appointment - I said I just wanted the information in the post (in order to track them down). They claimed to be Green Energy (however there are any number of companies with similar name so it did not help). However, today - I was called from 01914956256 who were wanting to arrange an appointment. I asked for their com[any details so I could make a complaint - they hung up. I have phoned back several times and they just hang up when they here my voice.

nuisance calls
this number keeps calling me at the most awkward moments and it is always a recorded message about free boilers so you can't even tell them to GET LOST. When you call this number it is permanently engaged. Has anyone got a name or address for the caller?????

I have just had a call from this shower as well. Tried to ring them back to find out who they are, but the number does not exist according to BT. Look like some firm knows they are breaking the law but get around it this way

Cleaning the bathroom - rushed to pick the 'phone up just to, yet again, be pestered with an automated telephone call from 'a man'. I tried to ring this number back as the 0161 is local to our area just to hear 'this number has not been recognised'. I am absolutely sick and tired of these calls where no-one has the balls to speak to you. Could these sad people who think they do a man's job do something worthwhile, such as 'doing a MAN'S job and not a faceless pain in the arse.

Just had a call from them. Asked them to repeat their name as I intended reporting them and the Geordie lass said I should have listened properly the first time. Cheeky devil. I'll probably be bombarded now but as I now know who they are I'll have some fun at their expense.

Group 3 Tech Ltd
This appears to be a legitimate technology company who have software product called VePhone. It works a bit like Skype allowing someone to call from anywhere in the world, via a PC tablet etc., as if they are using a local UK phone. My guess is the customer given the 7891 number (by G3T) is one of their best customers. So they have little interest in stopping it while keeping their hands clean..

There is a posting from Group 3 on another Forum saying they have nothing to do with this number - they have not allocated it. They suggest someone is using the number illegally and would also like to know if someone finds out.

So far so good
I pressed 2, told them I was interested and asked if someone could come out and see me.

The Geordie lass said I would have to give her some info first and I said 'ok, then send someone out to me because I want to torture him like you are doing to me'.

She laughed for about 2 minutes, went very quiet and said 'bye then'.

I replied 'please don't go yet, we need to sort this out' to which she replied 'no, your just messing about'.

I've had 4 calls this morning but since then nothing. Hopefully that is them done with me now.

If not I am going to be sensible and get someone out to sell me a boiler. When he gets here i'm locking the door and keeping him in my house until he puts his boss on the phone.

Silent Call Blocker
I've been receiving calls from this number for months (2 or 3 a day). It's now driving me nuts! I never answer as I know it's cold calling. TPS doesn't cover automated/recorded messages and I can't complain direct or to TPS or OFcom due to there never being a company name mentioned. I tried calling the number to day but had the same response as others: "The number you have dialled has not been recognised". Called my local provider who said there's nothing they can do to block the calls (unless I purchase a callblocker for £40). However, they did suggest an online call blocking service, which may help. Done: there are many to choose from. I hope this helps.

COLDcallPARASITESagain
Apparently, according to cold-call recorded message, we haven't applied for or responded to a government survey-central heating-boiler-something-blah-blah.

We don't have central heating but would never respond (by pressing 2 as requested) to any cold caller.

Our home phone number is listed on TPS because to answer the phone often involves a painful struggle.
I have a disabled left foot.

Replacement Boiler
Get at least one call every day from this number. My boiler is only 3 years old and definitely does not need replacing and even if it did I doubt I would qualify for their "scheme" as I am not on benefits. How long is this going to go on?

Get multiple calls from this number re the Green Energy scheme. I pressed 2 and spoke to a gentleman with a northern Britain accent. I said I wanted my number removed from their list. He kept saying it was a bad line and couldn't hear me and would ring me back and then rang off. He didn't phone straight back. If he does ring he will get the same again.

I like the idea of a petition. We need rid of?
Numerous calls over the last few months from this number. Sometimes cuts to answer machine where we get the usual gov grant boiler story. I have never spoken to any person by returning a call to this number regarding this matter but I know of several people who have. If I get one message of support on this site regarding a petition then I will start one and take it up with my MP, Brian Binley or Chris Heaton-Harris.These people (not the MP's?) need to be obliterated from invading our personal space in this manner. Let me know.
