TalkTalk and 0800 988 6009

What is going on at TalkTalk?

I got a call yesterday from an Asian-sounding woman who asked for the Talk Talk account holder, then started to ask me all sorts of questions to verify the account. I'm not expecting any call from them so why are they calling me?

You can bet that someone somewhere is going to make money out of this.

When I asked a question the woman hung up.

Today I got another call from the same source, but this time I was ready, first I asked the name of the company who was calling and was told it was TalkTalk. Then I aksed if the call was from the UK, the woman said NO, so I said I was not speaking to her and hung up.

Now I'm going to write to TalkTalk and ask them what's going on and why they are calling me, I don't want to be called. My number is already on the telephone preferences system so I should not get unsolicited calls.

If you are getting these calls please leave a comment.


I wrote to TalkTalk about this, feel free to copy this letter, alter it and use it yourself if you are having unsolicited calls from 0800 988 6009

Dear Sir or Madam:

Telephone: [put your number here]

I had a call from 0800 988 6009 made by an Asian-sounding woman who asked for the TalkTalk account holder. When I said that was me she went on to start asking me questions to verify the account. When I asked her something she hung up.

Today I had another call from the same source, this time I asked the name of the company that was calling and she said it was TalkTalk. I asked whether the call was from the UK or not and she said no it was not, so I told her I was not speaking to her and hung up.

I don't want to be bothered with unsolicited calls. I do not care what they are about, I have better things to do than have my time wasted, one thing I can be sure of is that someone somewhere is going to make money out of these calls, but not from me.

If I like your service I'll continue to use it, if I don't like it or someone is offering a better deal I'll move, but it will be me that initiates the searching for that better option.

If I keep getting these calls it will be a good reason to start looking around so I hope you are going to take some action to keep me happy.

Yours faithfully,
