Danielle called me today claiming to be from a local dr's surgery. I rang the surgery and this is untrue, the receptionist had never heard of her. The practice manager    said it might be an advertising agency as they do outsource to    a company who provides the surgery with appointment cards for patients (with advertising on the back)

Danielle called me today saying she is calling from a fertility clinic and wanted to find out whether I offered home visits for fertility. She called from this Blackpool number but asked me to call a mobile . I tried looking for this fertility clinic however it does not exist . Then I came across this site and wanted others to be aware of this scam.

I had a message left on my phone saying "Hi its Danielle, calling on behalf of Park Medical Practice" about an opportunity for me to promote my business in the surgery publications. I rang the surgery to check this out and I was surprised to be told by the practice manager that this is correct, the company is called Oldroyd Publishing Group, they have been going for 40 years and they do deal with the updates and supply of the practice publications.

This company has called me three times in the last 10 minutes asking for somebody called Mrs Healy, no one lives at my address with this name.    I rang back to speak to a manager as the callers were extremely rude, was told one wasn't available and that I should learn to listen when I asked for her name the phone was put down on me.

Message left: "Hi, I'm Danielle. I'm Calling from West**** (deliberately undecipherable) health centre. We were wondering if you work with weight loss clients and if you'd like to work with some of our patients. Please call me back if you'd like to discuss this opportunity..." She then gave me her mobile number - a strange thing for a surgery to do.

Scam.

Ceaseless calls to our business line trying to sell us advertising space on TV screens seen in waiting rooms at our local hospital.    Before that the same man was phoning about calendars for our local police (supposedly).    If you are daft enough to pay for the advert space good luck to you but they don't take a hint and leave you alone, despite making it clear calls won't be dealt with by us.

Green roofing - offer a free roof check, then repair but only with roof coating, not just the repair

I have just been looking at an Evans Halshaw website for used cars and 01253 607125 is shown as their number. I have not had any nuisance calls, just thought I would share this.

Company from Blackpool pretending to be your local surgery and want to make you advertise there....sounds like a scam to me. Just had a phone call from them. Not the first one.

Safe Hands are a definitely not a Telepest or Scam, they are a Care company who work in the Blackpool area.
I know this for certain as my brother used to work for them as a Care Worker.

Its a sales call from Blackpool. Basically they say theyre from my local postoffice and can I ring back? well no, cos my local postoffice is about 107 miles away from blackpool, so im assuming theyre trying to sell space on one of those advertising televisions, they have on the wall. Theyve called me three times over the last two days... luckily i have caller ID...
