1) I received yet another text on my phone today, telling me I might be able to claim for the recent accident I had.

I didn’t have an accident and who gave you my phone number anyway?

So what is data protection and who exactly is it protecting and finally what is the regulator doing about it?

2) Thurs 9th Feb 2012, if the regulator is reading this, kindly call 01614148306 and ask them how they got my number. They are trying to sell life insurance! Data protection?

3) Tues 21st Feb, 1pm another phone call from someone claiming to want to help me regarding an accident I had within the past 3 years. When I enquired when the accident occured the individual put the phone down.

4) 19th April an SMS message sent from +447501131715 stating I could be due £5,100 in compensation for a recent accident.

5) 23rd April another SMS sent from +447742019973 stating I could be entitled to £2,350 in compensation for mis-selling of PPI on my credit-card or loan.

6) 30th May another SMS sent from +447518070408 stating I could be entitled to £3150 in compensation from mis-sold PPI on my credit-card or loan.

7) 29th June PPI Claims called me again. I asked them to take me off their list which they assured me that they would do. The calling number is 0203 167 1196

8) 2nd July PPI Claims called. The calling number is 0203 167 1196 despite assurances mentioned above.

9) Further calls from this same number, 0203 167 1196 on 3rd, 4th, 7th and 9th July.

10) 12th November 2012, not content with sending unsolicited texts and cold calling, I am now receiving recorded messages from 08434105270 on my cell phone. Goodness knows how much that is costing me!

11) 4th January 2013, unsolicited text from +44825679113 offering to write off 70% of unsecured debts under £5,000 (no wonder the world is in a mess-no social resposibility)

12) 7th January 2013, unsolicited text from +447760897088 offering refund of PPI

13) 29th May 2013, a PPI recorded message!!! FFS what is the regulator doing? 08452865277

13) 30th May 2013, unsolicited phone call from “Run my Claims” 01792630620. I asked the individual how they got my number and she said the company BOUGHT my details!!!

14) 30th May 2013, another call today this time from Penelope (not obliged to give out her surname) at PPI Helpline, 0845 2865283. They obtained my number via a “Financial credit database”. What a farce!

Let me add that the FSA complaints website does NOT work.
