Possible scammers, breached data protection!
Complaint against UK Preference
I have been getting a lot of calls from two different numbers who, from eventually answering, i know to be call centre representing "UK Preference." The accent is always broad indian but i cannot confirm if they are overseas. I have answered 5 times to them. The first time i asked what they want and they hung up. This went on for the next 3 calls also of varying but similar content. The gist was they wanted me to answer 3 questions. I asked what they were about and they hung up. On the final call they asked to speak to me, using my full name. I confirmed it was me and that I would answer their questions (curiosity got the better of me.) They then followed with, "Can you confirm your address is...." and proceeded to read out a full address! That is a data protection breach whichever way you look at it. They had no idea who i was and me say "yes thats me" isnt complying with data protection. Good news is, i know where they bought the data. The address they gave was my companies new address. I have only ever associated my name with that address in one place, UK Fast Hosts. I had purchased a website for the new company and ticked the "No third party contact" box. Despite this i had calls from an SEO company and a web design company and now this. I have reported this to the ICO and i urge you all to do the same.
