I've started writing down all these annoying numbers so I can use them in the required phone field on websites like compare the market. So they can call each other No one at the other end when I answered the phone, they just hung up. Believe it is attached to Compare the market website. Pain in the frikin butt !!!!! Yep i compared insurance with COMPARE THE MARKET AND BUDGET DIRECT. Makes me furious, will not use either of them again. Get constant phone calls up to 11pm, and they won't tell me who they are until i confirm my name. I asked for 'THEIR NAME' OR 'COMPANY NAME' they refused to give it, until i answered. So i just hung up. Block this number!! Grrrrr Got a quote from compare the market, received 3 calls in 3 hours I called back number (07) 3327 8506 reached IVR for a company called auto & general services. blocked it but apparently budget direct online It's Budget Direct. Told them to take my number off, they refuse. So it's now blocked. Same as everyone else, made the mistake of using a comparison website and before I'd even finished the whole process I was receiving nuisance calls. Have no idea what they think they're going to accomplish by doing this. Call 'Auto And General Services' (the company who says was calling) on (07) 3377 8801 (same number but with 01 instead of 07) and you will speak to a real person who can take you off the list. She sighed as I mentioned what had happened, and seem frustrated that it happens automatically - be polite, give your number and you'll be taken off their list. I get the feeling upper management has put something in place that looked like a great idea at the time, but in reality it just means people like sally have to deal with angry people all the time! keeps calling me regardless Follow up call after comparing insurance online someone that wont leave me alone Shortly after using compare the market received a call but it was actually an Australian male advising me I had an unpaid ticket from 08 that needs to be resolved, I advised the male I work in debt collecting and that was breaking privacy legislation because I hadn’t verified any of my details so it was a bullsh*t call, he then said the fine was for stupid driving and continued to speak what seemed like an automated sort of voice as if someone was typing and that voice was speaking. Hung up and tried to call back and you get a message advising they’ll call you back. I was looking up quotes with Compare the Market and Budget Direct and within minutes of submitting my on line enquiry my phone started to ring. Super peeved off - I chose to do it online so i didn't need to speak to anyone as I hate talking on the phone - but nope, they still tried calling me - twice in the last half hour!!!! insurance company, keep calling you all day Car insurance marketing compare the market - pain compare the market... I enquired on the sight yesterday. Blocked ... Budget direct insurance i think Have to assume it is Compare the Market / Budget Direct related
