Had a letter and a call from this number fear mongering me into having a smart meter installed. I am not even the owner of our property. This is part of TTIP which is also linked to Agenda 21 - Look Agenda 21 up on You Tube - The letter said it is a legal requirement for me to have a smart meter installed - who makes Britain's Law now Brussels/Belgium the European Union. Please vote for Britain to be Independent again - Vote to leave the European Union - We DO NOT want AGENDA 21 THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!

we had letters from our energy supplier informing us our meter needs replacing, these people knew our names and energy supplier and have arranged a time to change the meter and given the engineers name for me to check when he arrives.

Hope this helps

This person said they were calling on behalf on my energy supplier to organise a visit for a safety check of my meters. They confirmed my address to me! They advised it would be Friday night between 5:30 and 8pm and that an engineer would give me a text 20 mins before he arrived. I didn't give my mobile number but then again I didn't give my address either.....

Called my supplier (Hydro) to cancel as I really didn't want to sit in and wait. They adivsed me that they would not call to arrange a safety check and that a letter would be sent out instead to start the proceedings by them.

I was actually quite worried about this whole thing after speaking to my supplier until I read some of the other comments regarding this number. The number is dead when you try to call it back......

Thank you for those who managed to get to the bottom of it and post your findings.

Keep getting calls from this number, when I answer there is someone there, sounds like it is a call centre, but they hang up!

Apparently this number belongs to Proctor and Gamble's technical research centre ?

This is a genuine call.

I called my supplier (Southern Electric) and they confirmed this is legitimate.

It is a company called G4S who carry out gas safety inspections of the meters on suppliers behalf.

I was told that if you need to speak to G4S you can contact them on 0800 0152 198.

I hope that helps out anyone who was as confused as l was about this phone call.

the people at this number, lied to my wife telling her that they were from our servise provider, not british gas, telling her that we had to wait in on a friday night, giving us a two hour window, to have a "SAFETY CHECK" of our electric meter that has to be done every two years, for that lie, the engineer will have a wasted journey as i tried to ring the number 01912870064 and it does'nt ring, so i can't tell themwhat i think of them or that we are going out on friday.

Who is calling from this number? They've called 10 times in succession this morning, when I answered just heard a series of bleeps. Annoying!

The number is British Gas, they asked me for my address, hmmmm no i didn't give it.

They are changing meters apparently, which is fine but i am not a customer nor will i ever be if this is how they conduct themselves, i think elderly people would be very worried by the type of call i recieved.    The guy was most insistant i was a customer to the point he was about to argue with me, untill i confirmed i wasn't where he thought i was.

Appalling customer service.

They called me at 12;00 in the afternoon today on 16/06/2012 and its a Saturday. Why they call on a weekend at 12 o clock confuses me since most company's only call during normal business days Monday to Friday. They did not leave a message which doesn't help matters, nor do i even know who to speak to.

They really need to leave messages and at least try to give a name.
