Same here - asked to be removed from list but they keep trying every few months or so. Want to advertise for a medical practice that no longer exists? That's what the caller wants to know.

As always - Mark Twiname (apparently a property developer) fabricates stories for his own personal ends. He is a con man in his own right and has recently scammed a local business man (and bona fide property developer ) out of many £1000's

I am a photographer, but do not do weddings. Trouble is I am under general photographers in a well known paper directory's website. BUT I am not in the their paper directory.Had a call from Kathy at Impact Marketing. Said they are doing a brochure for a wedding shop nearby, told her don't do weddings, I asked if she saw me on the Website of Thomson's. She said no, I found you in their paper version. That made me suspicious. Can not trace the wedding shop either.

Did 1471 out of curiousity, found company based near Manchester, even more strange.
Obviously another SCAM. Seems nowdays, any cold caller you have, must be treated as a possible scam.

Pam from impact claiming to be calling on behalf of a local bridal shop calls my business mobile at least six times a day leaving a couple of messages, I've been ignoring the number but it's getting ridiculous!

Just to add to the mix, I've had several calls from this number over the last couple of weeks (lost track how many), none of which I answered as I'd already heard it was a scam. However, someone called Sam, from the same Impact company, did leave a couple of messages on my answer phone, asking me to call him back, mentioning something about Fishwick Golf Club in Preston (which does exist). Did I phone him back? Did I f....

Just had a call from this company, Impact, claiming to be calling on behalf of a local bridal shop near me who were selling advertising space in a magazine. I'm really glad I checked out their number before I committed to anything.

Had A call from "Anthony", claiming to be from "Impact childrens playcentre" (insert your own name/business name between the speechmarks)!? My wife asked which business he wanted to talk to as we're both self employed? As this wasn't in his script he stumbled and didnt know what to say! haha, brain dead telemarketers, get a real job, you tool! Glad to hear other people also rumbled this gang!

Same story - Dani from Impact, in regard to my local Bridal shop...     I suspect this is a call I won't return.

Yup it's Kath again - calling to sell advertising in GP surgery "directories" which don't exist this time - £35 p/month the last time she rang a few months ago.    AT LEAST ON THE LAST CALL, THE SURGERY NAME WAS GENUINE - THIS TIME IT WAS NOT! Beware of this scam.

Had 2nd call from this lot today, two weeks after I said I wasn't interested and please remove me from whatever database they have.    They were trying to sell advertising space at a local golf course.    Can the TPS do anything to block these calls?

I fix boilers fior a living. I keep getting messages from this bunch claiming to be 'Impact', calling on behalf of Adams letting agent in Reading, asking me to call back. It doesn't ring true because they ignore my outgoing message asking for details of the boiler that needs fixing, so I'm ignoring their messages!
