There are generally two companies involved in a scam like this. One with the telecom resources and telesales staff makes the nuisance calls, and then another follows up the leads generated. Some have identified the latter company as “PPI Advice Line” whilst others have suggested Redhawk Legal Ltd in Swansea following up on the leads.
The company actually making the nuisance calls would appear to be Telemagic Ltd of 15A Cowell Street, Llanelli SA15 1UU. Companies can get blocks of numbers, and Ofcom records show Telemagic Ltd. is allocated the block 01792 211 xxx. Of course CLI can be faked, but other things point to the calls really being from there. Firstly Google street view shows a banner outside Telemagic Ltd’s registered address attempting to recruit “telesales staff” inviting them to call 07727 606257 for an interview. Secondly the director of Telemagic Ltd., Joseph Waite (born 25/03/1981) is director of “Protect Your World Ltd” which, under its previous name of “Mobiles 4 Less Ltd” became notorious for similar aggressive telemarketing of a dubious insurance product..
However, these nuisance calls may be making money for Joseph Waite, if he is the same Joseph Waite of nearby 16 Glan Yr Afon, Llanelli SA15 3QB who, on 20 March 2013, made a planning application to make a rear extension and attic conversion there.
Just leave your phone on auto answer. Genuine callers will leave a message. It's a bit inconvenient, but at least you don't have to waste a single second of your life talking to these dregs of humanity. By the way, TPS is a joke. It's a bit like saying "It's against the law to drive while using the mobile phone". Doesn't stop people, does it.
Nuisance recorded message re. personal injury claim - rubbish. I'm with TPS.
debt message. keep calling with message. driving me mad. registered with tps.
Spam call - I am with TPS and not listed either.
Report them to the Information Commissioner. I think that's the correct place, because it's a recorded message at first. The more complaints the authorities get, the greater the chance they'll be dealt with. Otherwise, if you've answered, they'll keep calling, because they know the number's live.
