Been called by 0161 962 4999 or +10119246586? Steer well clear

Any excuse to use this photo of Leonid Brezhnev again.

Another week, another set of unsolicited PPI phone calls, this time a one-two with first an unsolicited automated call from +10119246586 (note the use of the overseas number – a common tactic to sidestep it being illegal in the UK to make automated phone calls without prior consent) and then, apparently as a follow up, a human calling on 0161 962 4999 (registered to Lepus Marketing Limited, who also go under the name of The PPI Team).

Given the dodgy nature of the automated call to me and the questionable content in the subsequent phone call, these are another pair of numbers I would advise staying well clear of – other than if appropriate to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner here.

Others to steer clear of:

All, I note, with the 0161 dialling code. I wonder what it is about firms there at the moment?
