« Beware: New MSN Messenger Password Stealing Program In The Wild | Main | It's A Trap! »

  • I Just Called, To Say.......Nothing, Actually

There seems to be an odd case of dubious phonecalls taking place in the UK at the moment, but nobody can quite work out if the calls are coming from a legitimate company in need of some customer service training or a scam outfit who simply want to match your details to those on a list before selling it on to the highest bidder.

Alternatively claiming to be a representative of Halifax Bank (or First Assist, an accident insurance company), they cold call their "target" and immediately start quizzing them for personal details, apparently without prompting.

There's three whole pages of puzzled individuals here, and another extremely interesting writeup about it here.
