The conversation went something like this...
"Sorry you must have the wrong number"... he then quotes the first line of my address but gets the rest wrong... Like a twit I correct him. Then he asks my name, like an even bigger twit I give it.... D'oh! A few minutes later he calls back...
He quotes me my address.
"Hang on you just phoned me and got this information out of me a few minutes ago"
"No I called you"
Yes and before that you called me and I told you my name." (Like a fool because I was half asleep)
He tells me he's calling from something like "International Finance". I'm feeling more on the ball now... "Yes" I say suspiciously he tells me I took out a £5000 loan for home improvements. "No i didn't" I say. He seems surprised at this. So I say "I don't know what scam you're trying to pull but if you call here again I'm calling the police" and hang-up.... Bugger now I'm curious. Was this some scam, or has someone used my address to get a loan, or is it just a sales con?
My main worry is I think I know the name he asked for originally.
