0161 738 1501 – 0238 098 3709 4

I have just received a phone call from this number 0161 738 1501.  I suspect it is yet another PPI scam, but can’t be certain.

The call was a recorded message about my “outstanding refund”.  I was told that “Due to current legislation, failure to act today will reduce your refund value”

I was told to press 5 to speak to an adviser.  My guess is that this would involve a premium call.

If you dial the number that called you, you will get a recorded message that says:

“We are sorry for keeping you waiting.  Your call will be answered as soon as possible”.  The phone then goes dead.  Clearly they have no intention of answering  you.

I’m being plagued by these calls, as I’m sure we all are.

They are now using this number: 0238 098 3709.

    I complained to director of this company and got this reply:-
    “Good afternoon

    I have forwarded your complaint to the Information Commissioners Office, Telephone Preference Service and any other relevant body for investigation. Google and the domain host are in the process of deleting the cache and taking the website down.

    Creative Money have not traded since October 2012 and not used 0161 738 1501 since August 2012 and therefore the contact details obtained from Google are no longer relevant.

    The owner of the 0161 738 1501 number which is calling you is Blue Telecoms in Swansea which is owned by Mr Sascha Lopez.

    Creative Money have NEVER and do NOT process or solicit claims nor have they EVER employed the use of cold calling (automated or otherwise) marketing techniques.

    I trust this clarifies the situation.”

    I have just had a call from this number. He/she/it hung up before I could answer. I suppose i was expected to call back. Almost certainly a scam.

    I was upstairs talking on my mobile when I heard my landline ringing in the room below. I didn’t hurry to answer it because previous experience has taught me daytime calls are more often than not of the nuisance variety. Back in the living room, I used the 1471 facility and found this number on it. So glad I didn’t rush to answer. I’m registered with the TPS but still keep getting these calls. One recorded message even informed me that the Government wanted to give me a £1,000 pension bonus. As if! Do they think I was born yesterday. Incidentally, does anyone know what happens if you press 5 to speak to an adviser, or 9 to unsubscribe (never subscribed in the first place, so how can I?) Does either option transfer you to a premium rate line? Just wondered.

    That’s odd, Louise Stephens Manging Director (who lists her dislikes as incompetence) (ha ha) was tweeting as recently as 11 March 2013 using the title of Creative Money.
