Just had a phone call from an Indian sounding gent called Harry Connor. Actually he wasn’t totally sure what his name was because when I asked him again at the end of the call he said it was Sean Connor (not sure how he spells Sean – could be Shaun or Shawn – sorry). Perhaps he flips between both names without thinking – kind of split personality.
He was calling me about my Payment Protection Insurance and said I was eligible for £7,500 compensation. It was all above board because he said the Ministry of Justice was behind it.
I like to make sure I’m dealing with reputable folk when being asked about financial stuff so I asked for the name of his company (ukfinancial.com) and their phone number (020 881 907 01). He said they were headquartered in London but had an office in Manchester.
Unfortunately I must have mistyped both the name of the company and the phone number and now not only can I not ring him back but I can’t even track down his website.
Ah well – another opportunity to make a fast buck lost. Never mind. I dare say he or one of his colleagues will call back. They have already called about 6 times.
I realise that the Telephone Preference Service doesn’t work overseas but someone needs to come up with a solution for this problem.
