Get this number calling every day so like some on here pressed 2 and got a rough sounding glaswegian 'woman' who shouted over me that i should press 9 and then hung up. Hope she's proud of the way she makes her living. Next thought is to go along with them and waste a heep of there time before telling then to naff off.

Usual national database energy saving scam call

Automated unsolicited calls from 08443373970 are still informing the unlucky recipient that the National Database indicates we have not taken advantage of an energy assessment.

Constantly calling and I'm constantly reporting to the ICO. Come on ICO how many complaints do you need to fire them?

08443373970. I have been reporting this number to ICO for months now. Receiving daily calls. ICO not stopping them, TPS not stopping them. BT making too much profit from these calls to stop them. What a horrible situation.

Sick to death of this number calling me. Like many others I'm on TPS - for whatever it is worth (seemingly nothing). They call me every day without fail, often 2 or 3 times during each day. Honestly, I'm at my wit's end.

They call my house every day and have been doing so for weeks. Very disturbing.

We dont answer because of this helpful website. I have just reported them to the information commissioner by email with a list of the 26 times they have called over a 10 day period. (We have a telephone call logger). I know its a hasle to do this but the more who complain...... But really we ought to complaint to our MP every time we get a call. Then perhaps we would get something done. Just imagine if I had emailed my MP every time I had a call from them ......

Automated call about boilers. Been having this call daily for moths now and finally lost the rag. Pressed 2 and got put through to an agent and demanded to be removed from database - got hung up on... Set of scamming B@$tards!

08443373970 I have reported to Ofcom, but this has made it worse, the number called almost every day, when I reported it to Ofcom, it is now calling 3 times a day, it is recorded energy message, if my elderly mother has a fall while answering this call, I will be taking further legal advice, I am registered with tps, but it has made no difference, except a solicitor told me they are now breaking the law, and so hopefully I can take a private prosecution with all the call evidence I have.

Driving us up the wall. Phones with a recorded message several times a day for last two months. Have reported it three times to ICO and nothing happens. Registered with TPS - doesn't help in the least. Neither BT nor ICO seems to be doing anything.

This number (08443373970) has been calling every day for the past week. Automated message about replacing my boiler as a government requirement before 2017, complete balderdash. These people are criminals trying to get money from hard working citizens. SCAMMERS.

These people are a real menace. They call at least once a day. Please report them to the ICO each and every time they call. The more complaints they get the quicker the tortoise like ICO acts and they are the only way to stop these scoundrels.

Just had yet another call from this number. It is a recorded message about arranging an energy assessment, as "every home owner qualifies for a free boiler". We have an oil boiler (no mains gas in the area). Anyway, this time I decided to press 2 to ask if it included oil boilers. The Scottish female who answered said no it was only gas and electric in not a very nice manner.. I said the recorded message should say so. She just said "Well, just put the phone down then," emphasising the word phone. As I was telling her there was no need to be so rude she put the phone down. How on earth can you find out without pressing 2? Also, why shouldn't it include oil boilers???

As with the others reporting this number I keep getting disturbed by them. Since they don't bother to hide their number and have been reported to the ICO I can't understand why they haven't been stopped and heavily fined! Come on, ICO!

I got fed up with these messages and even pressing 9 to stop made no difference I decided today to press for an appointment to try and speak to someone a scottish accent guy introduced himself as John and as soon as I said I wished to end the calls he disconnected me . John I dont know what the hourly rate is for being rude and ignorant hut thank goodness my offspring did well at school and didnt have to resort to this .Your parents must be so disappointed in you

This number calls at least once per day, often two or three times with a recorded message. It claims that "the national database" indicates that you have not had an energy efficiency survey. This is a government scheme where you could recieve a free gas boiler - Act now

What a joke these poor ".... national database" idiots are. Do they really expect people to believe their rubbish? Shame they can't get a real job, must be on a "government training scheme", nudge nudge, wink wink......! They cannot be serious. Block the barstewards then they can auto dial all they want.

Usual recorded message about having to replace the gas boiler before 2017. The last three numbers (970 etc) can vary. Will my call blocker run out of memories before 'they' run out of numbers ?

Look at the facts. They phone you non stop. You press a number to stop recieving the calls, but you get more calls. You phone them back and ask them to stop, they abuse you and hang up. They are trying to make you phone their premium rate number. No decent firm would have anything to do with them. So what is the point of answering. REPORT TO ICO. Online form to fill in only takes minutes

Sick of my answering machine being full of their messages. Have previously pressed 9 to be removed from their database. Pointless. They called this morning, I pressed 2 to speak to them. Asked politely to be removed as sick of their unsolicited calls. They called an hour later. Pressed 2 again and got through to the same guy. I was livid and asked why they are harassing me. He put the phone down on me. Reported to ICO. Writing to MP today.

2 calls from this number this afternoon following on from 1 yesterday and 12 last week from their previous number, 08443373019. Usual suspected scam re boiler replacement.

I have to echo the other posts about calls from this number. We are getting these almost daily and have been for around 6 months now (along with others from similar numbers previously mentioned). We are usually out when the calls come through and the recording gets left on our call minder service. The speaker often has a Scottish accent (no offence intended to our friends north of the border). We don't usually listen to the whole thing so wasn't aware of the bit about having to act before 2017. Like others we are ex-directory and registered with TPS so I now intend to report this to the IC

Call daily, obviously on an automatic dialer, I never answer unknown numbers, I always check on the internet first. Agree with everyone else, these sort of calls should be stopped but the TPS is useless fr this and they know all the ways around it. Seriously thinking of getting rid of two landlines so I don't get these calls, to be honest I never use the landline anyway, always use my mobile and if I get an unwanted call on that I just block it straight away.

This number has called my landline (registered with TPS and ex-directory) at least 4 times a day since 1st June. I am sick of it. I have reported it to the Information Commisioners Office. 08443373015 and 08443373019 called 4 times a day between 25th May and 30th May. Why can they not be stopped? I find these alls distressing as I am disabled and struggle to get to the phone.

National energy database? They call nearly every day sometimes 3 or 4 times. Press 9 does nothing. Pressed 2 a rude voice asked how old boiler I replied 1 month and he hung up. This is beyond a joke. Why can't they be stopped?

I bought new BT phone with call guard. Only thing is it blocked all my calls from overseas too so I turned it off and manually blocked calls, then they used a different number. I have now found that I can block an area code... so I have blocked calls from 0844 numbers... fingers crossed!

Recorded message fraudulently saying all boilers must be replaced this year with A rated boiler. This is a complete lie and those who are associated with this are fraudsters. The only way you will get them stopped is to report them to the ICO every time they call you. Once there have been enough complaints the ICO will move against them. Go to ico.org.uk to complain

I returned to my house today and had six phone calls. Not one for me all scam and sales and I have TPS, I have barred them b ut they never remove. I log every number on here. Do the owners of these businesses not realise that people are cancelling al their products so they are losing money. !

I have been receiving calls with a recorded message stating (paraphrased) "The National Database indicates that you have not had your energy efficiency survey done. You could be entitled to a free replacement boiler. Press 2 to speak to a representative or 9 to opt out." I have pressed 9 each of the 10+ times I received this call over the past three weeks. So, I pressed 2 to speak to a human being; explained that my boiler is brand-spanking new and was rudely told to "press 9 then" in a Glasgow accent and the phone was slammed down. These people have to be stopped, by the police, if necessary.

Have been harassed with these calls almost on a daily basis for the last 3 months . After pressing 2 to speak to someone and ask the, to remove my number they put the phone down. Yesterday I decided to chat and find out more but after asking questions again phone put down. Extremely fed up with this .i am ex-directory but this doesn't appear to make any difference .

They keep calling my 90 year old Mother, who is ex-directory! How do they get the numbers? I also have tried pressing 9, putting the phone down on them, but to no avail. The end result is my Mother won't answer the phone to anyone, which is very concerning.

I've lost count of the number of automated calls I've received from this number and have reported to the Information Commissioner's Office on around 5 occasions. I can see from other posts that the ICO have been informed over a period of weeks. I would encourage all users of this website who have been called by this number to: 1) Report to ICO 2) If calls are still being received by end of July this would imply no effective ICO response to the complaints, in which case raise a concern about ICO to your local MP and / or raise a complaint with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport since they are ICO's sponsor.

I have been getting this number for a long time. I invested in a good BT phone which allows up to 100 calls to be blocked so they never get through to you. It also lets you register all the people you want to call you and any others are put onto a hold until they give there name. You never get these calls and it never rings at your house unless you want it. I am thrilled with the phones and even happier that I can block out scammers and nuisance calls. You cant get rid of these people unless you take your own action, no one is interested, so block them and get the satisfaction that they cant ring you again.

08443373970 keeps calling with a different recorded message every time. I press 2 to speak with them and they immediately hang up when I ask them to confirm their number.and must be penalised and shut down for this continual harassment. I too like wasting their time, but I would ask the poster from 25/6/2016 not to reduce himself to their level with his anti Scottish racist rants. This is a criminal offence and he could be charged. Remember we're not all bad up here.

After countless calls, I turned off the answer phone and let them ring out in the hope it would be noted as unused. After a month the calls have stopped, I was able to check who had called on my phone facility in case of needing to return a call. It seems if you have an answerphone they know you exist, so they keep trying. NEVER answer them, as then you are in! Am really angry, as am on TPS, useless, ex directory, so that leaves some pond life passing on my number..BT should be able to weed these people out of the system, if they could make money out of it, of course.

Boiler - fed up with this number calling 5x since 10am already today!!!! Just ignore it & never answered it but they still keep phoning ?

This number has phoned me 10 times since the begining of the month, but I have already put their number in my True Call zap list so they never get through. They are zapped in 18 seconds. Like other contributors I never know they have rung until I check my call log at the end of the day.

Same experience as everyone else - this no calls at least 3 times almost every day. Have a caller-display phone so ignore it, but it's still a real nuisance call, always having to go to look or listening to and erasing messages. There is no 'national database' showing I need a new boiler cos I recently got one !! Also TPS is useless, have been registered with them for years - only ever read about one prosecution every 2 or 3 years it seems like!

Hounded daily from this number! Every time they call I'm now reporting them to ICO through there website. Only takes a couple of minutes to fill out a complaint. If enough people do it they will aventually take action against this company.

At least 3-4 times a day. Claims to be offering a new boiler. I have made a note of the number and if it appears in caller display I don't answer it.

Another 'the national data base shows...'call from these people today making out an assessment is obligatory. Pressed 2, got a grumpy sounding west ot Scotland female voice which snapped 'stop mucking me about' when I pressed for her full name, and rang off. How these people expect anyone to do business with them defeats me. And, yes, I have been registered with TPS for many years,

This number has been calling me regularly for months. I never answer as have caller display and don't pick up for unknown numbers. However, in the past they always left a message but now, as I never answer, they seem to just hang up. Still, they are a pest, and should be stopped but I don't know what else I can do as have already reported them as harassment calls.!!

why do I have to waste my time with these …. callers?!!!!

harassment plain and simple. Looking up the number this prefix 0844 337 is issued to "ETC Telecom Ltd". Of course the callers maybe spoofing this number and nothing to do with ETC.
0 0
As soon as I heard it to be an automated call and that it was trying to sell me a boiler - and I don't even have gas!!! - I zapped them on my TrueCall unit. Ever since, their numerous calls have been zapped by the TrueCall unit and I'm not even aware that they have called until I view my log of calls. Incidentally, I have done tis to many other similar callers and there are quite a lot now who never get through and, or grater importance, don't bother or interrupt me.

Tel No. 0844 337 3970 I am getting sick and tired of these calls. Automated - Free Energy Assessment, press 2 to speak to adviser, press 9 to stop receiving calls. They are calling my place of work, not even the correct criteria as you have to be a home owner at the premises, this is my WORK. Several calls a DAY. Option to press 9 to be taken off list, this does not work. Pressed option 2 to talk to someone, told them to stop calling me as this was a business number, no joy. Told them to tell me who they are, they say they will call back and hang up. Can this not be stopped? This is interrupting my work day potentially interrupting costly business.! Does anyone have any ideas to get these pests to stop calling?

08443373970. Persistent calls for months. Today by 3pm. 3 calls so far! I have taken to not answering and then checking back on 1471 to identify caller in the hope that the calls will cease, but that doesn't make any difference. Very annoying when genuine callers are finding it difficult to contact me because I am reluctant to answer phone. As an elderly lady this harassment is very disturbing. Surely some action should be taken against these nuisances.

Several calls a week from this number (08443373970). The automated message is "... If you're in receipt of benefits you may qualify for the new government scheme which gives you access to grant funding towards a new efficient a rated boiler. Every household in the UK needs to have this done before 2017. So please press 2 now to book your assessment while we're in your area. Press 2. Alternatively to stop receiving these calls press 9" Reported to the Information Commissioner's Office on 3 occasions but I have no confidence that they're any more effective than TPS. It surely can't be difficult for the ICO to identify the phone service provider and therefore the organisation behind these calls.
0 0
I have been having calls from this number at least three times a day for the past two to three months. Used to ignore it but then started picking up and it was a recorded message about Government schemes for new boilers for home owners. I have also started "pressing 2 to speak to an operator". You get through to a human and as soon as I say I am in Council accommodation they go silent. The past two days I have shouted "how rude" down the phone but thinking on a few choice words that they might understand next time. Like all the other comments here I am also registered with TPS both landline and mobile and still get these crap calls.

same as the others messages, really pees me off. I am with Virgin so get free 1471's, I do a 1471 and leave the phone connected for 10 minutes. Virgin must know who they are and the nature of their "business" but are happy to allow them to bother their customers, for the sake of a fraction of a penny. If Virgin's phone lines started to get clogged if everyone did the same 1741, it could slow down their operation and maybe just prompt them to blacklist such sh*t companies. a bit desperate but nothing else seems to work

I get calls from this number every day, sometimes 2-3 times a day. I am registered with the TPS etc and reported this number quite a while ago. And still the calls persist. I work from home so this is a daily interruption. Echoing many of the other comments here, there appears to be no meaningful action being taken against this company to close down its shoddy and unprofessional cold calling approach. There needs to be a change in the law to deal with this type of behaviour quickly and effectively.
0 0
Same recorded message as I and other posts have described previously. 5 calls in the last 3 days, all reported to the Information Commissioner's Office. I've also informed the ICO that according to this website the number has been searched over 20,000 times. Based on my own experience and that of others reported on this website I have no confidence in ICO's effectiveness.

I have been plagued with calls from this number for months now, sometimes several calls a day. Having previously reported this to the ICO with no apparent action, I have contacted my MP -there is a website where you can draft a letter to them. I have received correspondence from my MP informing me she has written to the Information Commissioner and the Chief Executive Officer to ask him to investigate and to let her know what course of action he proposes to resolve this unwelcome action. I suggest if everyone receiving these unwarranted and harassing calls contacts their MP which takes less than 5 minutes we may at last see some positive action against these cowboys.

I have been receiving calls with a recorded message stating (paraphrased) "The National Database indicates that you have not had your energy efficiency survey done. You could be entitled to a free replacement boiler. Press 2 to speak to a representative or 9 to opt out." I have pressed 9 each of the 10+ times I received this call over the past three weeks. So, I pressed 2 to speak to a human being; explained that my boiler is brand-spanking new and was rudely told to "press 9 then" in a Glasgow accent and the phone was slammed down. These people have to be stopped, by the police, if necessary.

08443373970 - 10 calls in the last 5 days, this is pure and simply harassment. If I was to pester someone with this amount of unsolicited calls I would be charged or at least cautioned by the police. Why is no action taken against this Company?

Have been harassed with these calls almost on a daily basis for the last 3 months . After pressing 2 to speak to someone and ask the, to remove my number they put the phone down. Yesterday I decided to chat and find out more but after asking questions again phone put down. Extremely fed up with this .i am ex-directory but this doesn't appear to make any difference .

Recorded message about "The National Database shows you have not yet had your energy efficiency survey.........all homes need to have a A-rated boiler by 2017." What national database? Press 2 for more information, 9 to stop receiving these calls. I did neither. Number now blocked on my call blocker. This is the same message as I got from 0844 337 3015 and 0844 337 3019 last week, which I have reported to the information commissioner. Our number is ex directory and registered with TPS. Will also report this number to the IC.

I've been receiving several automated calls a week (5 in the last 3 days) from this number with the message"..you may qualify for the new government scheme which gives you access to grant funding towards a new efficient a rated boiler. Every household in the UK needs to have this done before 2017. So please press 2 now to book your assessment while we're in your area. Press 2. Alternatively to stop receiving these calls press 9". I've reported to ICO on 5 occasions and see from other posts that complaints have been made to ICO over at least the last month. I've also alerted ICO that according to this website the number has been searched over 14,000 times (now over 15,000!) and reported as harassment over 240 times. How much evidence is required before ICO take action and prosecute ?
0 0
I've lost count of the number of automated calls I've received from this number and have reported to the Information Commissioner's Office on around 5 occasions. I can see from other posts that the ICO have been informed over a period of weeks. I would encourage all users of this website who have been called by this number to: 1) Report to ICO 2) If calls are still being received by end of July this would imply no effective ICO response to the complaints, in which case raise a concern about ICO to your local MP and / or raise a complaint with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport since they are ICO's sponsor.

I have been called 12 times since June 9, 2016. They first say The national date base shows you have not had an energy assessment. I HAVE had a recent energy assessment. I do not like these calls and I think they are connected to my phone hacking problems. I get at least two marketing calls a day not all from this number and I think they are linked to a local call center that may be hacking my line. The call center is on the Isle of Bute in Scotland. If anyone knows anything about this please post your experience. Thank you.

I've tried the automated way of attempting to stop them calling and asking them nicely, neither works. So now I've decided to waste their time like they are wasting mine. I choose to be put through to an operator, which often seems to be a Scottish person. Now I've nothing against the Scots, but after giving them false details and stringing them along for a few minutes I shout and swear at them, using every word I can think of that denigrates the Scottish people. It's actually quite stress relieving after a long day at work, but I'd prefer not to get any calls at all.

08443373970 I have reported to Ofcom, but this has made it worse, the number called almost every day, when I reported it to Ofcom, it is now calling 3 times a day, it is recorded energy message, if my elderly mother has a fall while answering this call, I will be taking further legal advice, I am registered with tps, but it has made no difference, except a solicitor told me they are now breaking the law, and so hopefully I can take a private prosecution with all the call evidence I have.

Just had yet another call from this number. It is a recorded message about arranging an energy assessment, as "every home owner qualifies for a free boiler". We have an oil boiler (no mains gas in the area). Anyway, this time I decided to press 2 to ask if it included oil boilers. The Scottish female who answered said no it was only gas and electric in not a very nice manner.. I said the recorded message should say so. She just said "Well, just put the phone down then," emphasising the word phone. As I was telling her there was no need to be so rude she put the phone down. How on earth can you find out without pressing 2? Also, why shouldn't it include oil boilers???

I do not know who called, but I know I'm tired of them doing so. Some days they call as much as 5 times in spite of the fact that I do not answer. I am being called now from a variety of numbers and when they each decide to call on the same day it is very disrupting. I stopped answering any unidentified numbers many weeks ago yet they still persist. I am beginning to find it not only disruptive but bordering on harassment.

Call me at least 10 times daily. I work from home so have to answer! I have twice gone through to the operator to request the name of the company that is calling. Today 'Chris' told me 'I can't give that information', when I asked why his response was 'you have a bad attitude and I don't feel like I owe you anything'. When I asked to speak to a manager he was magically the supervisor.. so I said ' do you train your staff to speak to a potential customer that way' - he then apologised! I kept him on the phone talking in circles for 20 minutes and then pretended I had been keeping him talking until the police trace completed for the harassment charges! He slammed the phone down fast.

Call daily, obviously on an automatic dialer, I never answer unknown numbers, I always check on the internet first. Agree with everyone else, these sort of calls should be stopped but the TPS is useless fr this and they know all the ways around it. Seriously thinking of getting rid of two landlines so I don't get these calls, to be honest I never use the landline anyway, always use my mobile and if I get an unwanted call on that I just block it straight away.

I bought new BT phone with call guard. Only thing is it blocked all my calls from overseas too so I turned it off and manually blocked calls, then they used a different number. I have now found that I can block an area code... so I have blocked calls from 0844 numbers... fingers crossed!
