0844 8466524

This number hassles Lou and I on a daily basis at the moment The callers are always reluctant to admit who they are but when pressed, they claim to be Galaxy Finance. If these people have a website, it’s well hidden behind false fronts. There is a galaxyfinance.com but it goes through a series of HTML redirects before ending up at a broken link redirected from www.cj.com which belongs to a company called Commission Junction who describe themselves as “a ValueClick” company. Great, spammers in other words.

I’m wondering how 0844 numbers actually work. They appear to be the telephony equivalent of the HTML redirect, enabling foreign callers to appear as non-international. Perhaps it’s a modern way to get around the Telephone Preference Service which is intended to protect us from this kind of cold calling. I just wish there was a way to refuse such numbers or at least select silent ringtones based on caller ID.

    I have been called up by this phone number today 5 times. Every 2 hours. I have already put the phone down on ‘Sunny’ who was far from when I told him I wasn’t interested in what he had to say.

    I am going to try and get the number blocked if I can.

    Agree with above. Several calls have been received. I have raised a complaint to TPS using their website.
    I doubt it will do any good, but hopefully they will be inundaqted with similar complaints and realise there is a genuine issue.
    Feel free to replicate my action. http://complaints.tpsonline.org.uk/Consumer/
