Recorded message saying that if on benefits we qualify to have an assessment to have a new A rated boiler which the Government needs us to do before before 2017.
Never answer a call I do not recognise
Nearly broke my neck answering this call and on several occasions have had to ruin a meal. It is a serious that these calls can cause such a nuisance.
Harassing, unwanted recorded message. Should be banned.
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.
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
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. Am TPS registered and have reported the lot to ICO; also sent letter to my MP requesting action be taken to stop this harrassment.
These scumbags have called me twice today. I believe they keep changing the last 3 digits to get past my call blocker (had similar from virtually identical numbers but ending in '015' and '019'. I've reported them to ICO.
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
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 ?
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
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!
COMPUTERISED VOICE SAYS WE ARE ENTITLED TO BOILER DAILY CALL RANDOM TIMES. VERY ANNOYING.
nuisance
Had calls from this number over a period of weeks.I do not answer calls I do not recognise.If you answer in the way you are asked you will likely be charged-and that's the scam.Why no action has been taken by now concerning these calls is beyond me.
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.
Keeps calling, leaves no message and when you try to ring back all you get is number temporary unavailable
recorded call and when a "person" comes on the phone you get abuse and the phone is put down
This is an automated call about boilers. TPS makes no difference. Tried pressing 9 to no avail. Getting calls almost daily. When I called the number immediately after their call to me there was a message saying the number was temporarily not working.
Thanks for the comments everyone; blocked.
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.
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.
Rang me today first time in a couple of weeks I pressed 9 again see what happens.
Government grants for boiler.
This number calls at least 4 times a day - I've been off work this past week so have been more aware of it! Mostly I ignore it but today I answered - they asked to speak to me - I said no - the woman on the end of the phone then told me to go to hell!
Calls constantly. Call guardian stops it from ringing through, no message left, but I am away to block this number
Bloody sick of this number calling offering boilers to home owners surely if they do their homework they would know what homes are owned and what are housing assco. Everyday at the same time they call I connect to speak to someone and today the rude B*tch couldn't even answer the phone properly then hung up on me when I tried to explain .....
Boiler Scam.... These people should be locked up, they are scum........
I am so sick of these people calling. It is not legitimate or if it is the government should be sued. If you ask to speak to someone they are extremely rude. The automated call is send out like clockwork everyday. I have resorted to unplugging my landline.
Boiler scam, I despair, like everybody else. Reported to ICO

08443373970
Idiots flogging boilers, when i complained the operator swore at me and hung up
I've had this number call me 9 times in under a fortnight. My number is ex-directory and registered with the TVs and they still call!!!!
Two to three calls received a day, I'm recovering from cancer and explained this to them and said several times I want removed from calling list and it still happens. Fed up with it.
recorded mesage offering a free boiler SCAMMERS
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.
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 .
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.
Rings house phone 2 or 3 times a day, every day; this, despite signing up for no sales calls. Incredibly annoying and agree with a previous comment that the public should raise this as an issue with their MP,s.
call 4-5 times a day recorded message asked to be taken off data list persist even tho reg with tps these people need arrested

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.
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.
TPS don't deal with these type of calls. Only the ICO can help
This number has phoned 5 times in the last month. Each time the call blocker has refused it access.
After more than a month of these calls I called this number & got a BT message to inform callers that it was disconnected.
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!
They call my house every day and have been doing so for weeks. Very disturbing.
Many, many calls since the middle of June.
boiler seller
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.
Constantly calling and I'm constantly reporting to the ICO. Come on ICO how many complaints do you need to fire them?
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.
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.

Every single day without fail.
ring every day, driving me mad having to retrieve and cancel their messages from our business phone line!!!!
About 40 calls in the last month. Tried pressing 9 and 2 ... Still calling me. Am now going to press 2 and start blowing a whistle very loudly in their ear to annoy them for a change!
Calls regularly. Recorded message "the National Database shows you have not taken advantage...... selling boilers?
Same as previous comments. I notice it is a special rate call. Do not phone them back !
This number calls almost daily. Automated call - boilers. Have tried pressing 9 to no avail. TPS makes no difference. Thoroughly fed up with them. Today when I called the number got a message to say the number is temporarily out of order.
regular spam, recorded message pretending from government, just crooks selling boilers. really really annoying, had hundreds
As everyone else, recorded message about a national database. Pressed hang-up as soon as I heard recorded voice. A RIGHT PAIN
The well known national boiler database call. The ICO does not appear to have enough complaints yet so fill in their form at ico.org.uk The number, and the ones used earlier, are assigned to etctelecom ltd. You might try complaining via their online contact form at etctelecom.co.uk Give them a week to get the calls stopped and tell them you will charge them for every call you receive after that. Then start invoicing them!
08443373970. Hung-up when I asked which company they represent. On TPS. Call numbers increasing. BT will not do anything without charging for it.
This company (boilers) has been calling me twice daily for the last month -( recorded message but you can hear people in the background) - you could set your clock by them! very very annoying!!!! Pressing 9 makes no difference - TPS no difference
It's the "national database" claim yet again, telling me I haven't had an energy assessment and trying to flog me boilers. Calling twice a day over the last couple of weeks. I'm registered with TSP, for what use that is. Have shopped them to ICO twice today alone.
Constant calls from this automated caller a PAIN
I now have a phone whch blocks these calls so I no longer get pestered by their constant ringing. My call log however shows that they have phoned sometimes twice a day over the last few weeks (since I got the new phone). Before call blocking telephone I was pestered by the pre-recorded voice telling me that my boiler should be renewed. Absolute rubbish !!! I had pressed 9 as instructed every time to stop the calls but the calls persisted. I am registered with tps but they are completely toothless. Time the government pulled their finger out to enforce the laws preventing companies like this from harassing people and prosecute them instead of standing by effectively doing nothing to stop them.
I just look at this number and ignore it. They'll get sick before me.
Number calls at least twice everyday. I ignore it but I still have to go to telephone to see who it is on caller display. Very annoying.
Why can we not get off their dratted data base. I've been receiving these calls for long enough [ too long ] and no matter how often I press the key to be removed I'm not.
Twice a day. Very irritating.
Calls from this number are coming through more frequently - used to be once per week now sometimes twice in one hour. If I am in I do occasionally answer it and press 9 but it only seems to up the frequency. Last time I pressed 2 and before I even spoke I got some really grumpy woman ask "huh, well, are you the home owner then", when I asked why she was incessantly phoning this number she said "oh, you want the message back on then" and cut me off. I tried calling the number back but it said the number had been cut off.
I have written to my MP as the ICO have been effective and asked her to intervene. She has contacted the ICO and the letter of response from the anti spam team manager was bull, full of meaningless waffle about their success before going on to advise me to register with the TPS and complain to the ICO website. In other words next to useless. I have responded to my MP asking her to take this to a higher authority since the Team Manager can't or won't assist. These pests ring frequently and it seems I am not the only recipient. I suggest anyone affected contact their MP via write to them.com with a view to activate an investigation into these spammers.
Spam - 08443373970 Sorry - that should be the ico have been INEFFECTIVE
Irritating.!
I have tried the ICO and OFCOM as well as being registered with the TPS. Totally useless. Time to start a petition to make it illegal to cold call, silent call and recorded message call and then prosecute the offenders.
calls at least once a day trying to sell boilers press 9 to be removed no it doesn't
this is beginning to sound like the company who got fined last year
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.
National database. Scammers, have been calling me every day for weeks, possibly months. I have reported them to ofcom and 'action fraud'. Nothing seems to be getting done about it. The more people who report them the more likely it is that something might be done to close them down.
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?
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.
calls every day
Sick of coming home to answerphone messages from these scammers. Wish someone would actually take action and sue the scum.
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.
08443373970
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.
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
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???
On night shift. They called about two hours into my sleep. I'm not going to switch my phone off incase a family member phones. I've asked to be removed as I live in rented property and boiler replacement is nothing to do with me but still they phone.
Do not answer or press any number. 0844 is premium rate. Report to ico
Gas holier message with 0844 337 3970 and 0844 377 3979 and some others so have sky call baring its very handy to block these numbers.
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.
I'm at the end of my tether with these parasites. 3 or 4 calls daily for weeks! seriously considering disconnecting my landline just for the peace. If any political party outlawed these inconsiderate arseholes, they would be guaranteed my vote!
Bloody pest, never answer these calls yet they still ring several times daily.
0844373970
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 ......
Calls everyday. A total nightmare. No message left, or a message about boilers. Please go away!
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.
Been called by this number several times over last 2-3 weeks.usually day time calls when I'm out at work but also weekends.im TPS registered.sick of these calls.what can be done to stop them?
automated spam pretending to be government driven. trying to flog boilers. had in excess of 50 calls from them in the last 2 months. hate them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Automated call about boiler replacement. Several times a day I am sick to death of them. TPS registered and ex-directory, they started as soon as our new line was put in. I might try complaining to Virgin.
08443373970 Energy Care Centre - "press 9 to be removed" nothing happens same again every day. Pressed 2 specifically told them to remove me from the list or I would report them - they hung up.
fed up of them calling me auto number told them to f off and phone put down pressed the 9 and still getting 12 calls a day starting at 8 in the morning got tps and reported something needs done
Hung up when they heard a woman's voice. Blocked it with a Call Saint. They'll just use a different phone number. DON'T dial anything to stop the calls. You'll probably be charged. TPS is a waste of space.
For months...getting these calls ....content as described by the other postings here. Pressed 9 to be removed....no difference. Went through to book my "energy assessment" appointment and complained ....cut off at first negative remark. Clearly a scam. After this call frequency of calls went up. Now they come at least twice a day. Where do I go to stop this?
Supposed government boiler scheme. This number has called repeatedly, sometimes more than hourly. Can't seem to stop them.
They call you on a premium rate number, block it and they come back on another number, answer and ask to be removed they abuse you. Pressing opt out and you get more calls from them. Answering results in more calls from other scammers as you have shown your line to be live. They are trying to get you to ring their PREMIUM RARE NUMBER, money in their pocktets, simple as that. Report to ICO
Harassment first class. Should be charged under the Harassment Act as calling more often than legislation allows. These scumbags should be brought to justice
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.
Is there a way to find the address of the holders of 0844 numbers?
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. !
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
08443373970 came home from a day out and had 3 missed calls from this number yesterday and already had my first call from them today and only 10.30am I live on a through road where a lot of people walk past my home and don't want anyone to hear my phone ringing and not being answered as a sign that house is unoccupied. TPS is no use
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!
08443373970 - have called multiple times per week despite being signed up to the TPS and pressing '9' to stop receiving calls. Going to report to ICO.
Their recorded message has been leaving itself on my answering machine at least 3 times a week for the past several weeks, telling lies about how every household in the UK MUST have an A-rated boiler by 2017.. Why does the ICO not prosecute these b"""""""""?
0844-337-3970 ... Calls everyday spouting lies... They state "Every household in the UK MUST have an A-rated boiler by 2017" They are SCAMMERS & SCUM these people
I keep receiving automated calls from this number even though every time I press 9 to be removed. I have even tried pressing 2 to speak to the person and told them to remove, but still the call keep coming.

On night shift. They called about two hours into my sleep. I'm not going to switch my phone off incase a family member phones. I've asked to be removed as I live in rented property and boiler replacement is nothing to do with me but still they phone.
Do not answer or press any number. 0844 is premium rate. Report to ico
Gas holier message with 0844 337 3970 and 0844 377 3979 and some others so have sky call baring its very handy to block these numbers.
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.
I'm at the end of my tether with these parasites. 3 or 4 calls daily for weeks! seriously considering disconnecting my landline just for the peace. If any political party outlawed these inconsiderate arseholes, they would be guaranteed my vote!
Bloody pest, never answer these calls yet they still ring several times daily.
0844373970
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 ......
Calls everyday. A total nightmare. No message left, or a message about boilers. Please go away!
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.
Rang me today first time in a couple of weeks I pressed 9 again see what happens.
Government grants for boiler.
This number calls at least 4 times a day - I've been off work this past week so have been more aware of it! Mostly I ignore it but today I answered - they asked to speak to me - I said no - the woman on the end of the phone then told me to go to hell!
Calls constantly. Call guardian stops it from ringing through, no message left, but I am away to block this number
Bloody sick of this number calling offering boilers to home owners surely if they do their homework they would know what homes are owned and what are housing assco. Everyday at the same time they call I connect to speak to someone and today the rude B*tch couldn't even answer the phone properly then hung up on me when I tried to explain .....
Boiler Scam.... These people should be locked up, they are scum........
I am so sick of these people calling. It is not legitimate or if it is the government should be sued. If you ask to speak to someone they are extremely rude. The automated call is send out like clockwork everyday. I have resorted to unplugging my landline.
Boiler scam, I despair, like everybody else. Reported to ICO
Boiler
SCAMMERS. Pre-recorded tosh, talking of a "national database" and wanting to sell you a boiler. Ignore or Block
08443373970
Idiots flogging boilers, when i complained the operator swore at me and hung up
I've had this number call me 9 times in under a fortnight. My number is ex-directory and registered with the TVs and they still call!!!!
Two to three calls received a day, I'm recovering from cancer and explained this to them and said several times I want removed from calling list and it still happens. Fed up with it.
recorded mesage offering a free boiler SCAMMERS
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.
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 .
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.
Rings house phone 2 or 3 times a day, every day; this, despite signing up for no sales calls. Incredibly annoying and agree with a previous comment that the public should raise this as an issue with their MP,s.
call 4-5 times a day recorded message asked to be taken off data list persist even tho reg with tps these people need arrested
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.
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.
TPS don't deal with these type of calls. Only the ICO can help
This number has phoned 5 times in the last month. Each time the call blocker has refused it access.
After more than a month of these calls I called this number & got a BT message to inform callers that it was disconnected.
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!
They call my house every day and have been doing so for weeks. Very disturbing.
Many, many calls since the middle of June.
boiler seller
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.
Constantly calling and I'm constantly reporting to the ICO. Come on ICO how many complaints do you need to fire them?
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.
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.

Every single day without fail.
ring every day, driving me mad having to retrieve and cancel their messages from our business phone line!!!!
About 40 calls in the last month. Tried pressing 9 and 2 ... Still calling me. Am now going to press 2 and start blowing a whistle very loudly in their ear to annoy them for a change!
Calls regularly. Recorded message "the National Database shows you have not taken advantage...... selling boilers?
Same as previous comments. I notice it is a special rate call. Do not phone them back !
This number calls almost daily. Automated call - boilers. Have tried pressing 9 to no avail. TPS makes no difference. Thoroughly fed up with them. Today when I called the number got a message to say the number is temporarily out of order.
regular spam, recorded message pretending from government, just crooks selling boilers. really really annoying, had hundreds
As everyone else, recorded message about a national database. Pressed hang-up as soon as I heard recorded voice. A RIGHT PAIN
The well known national boiler database call. The ICO does not appear to have enough complaints yet so fill in their form at ico.org.uk The number, and the ones used earlier, are assigned to etctelecom ltd. You might try complaining via their online contact form at etctelecom.co.uk Give them a week to get the calls stopped and tell them you will charge them for every call you receive after that. Then start invoicing them!
08443373970. Hung-up when I asked which company they represent. On TPS. Call numbers increasing. BT will not do anything without charging for it.
This company (boilers) has been calling me twice daily for the last month -( recorded message but you can hear people in the background) - you could set your clock by them! very very annoying!!!! Pressing 9 makes no difference - TPS no difference
It's the "national database" claim yet again, telling me I haven't had an energy assessment and trying to flog me boilers. Calling twice a day over the last couple of weeks. I'm registered with TSP, for what use that is. Have shopped them to ICO twice today alone.
Constant calls from this automated caller a PAIN
I now have a phone whch blocks these calls so I no longer get pestered by their constant ringing. My call log however shows that they have phoned sometimes twice a day over the last few weeks (since I got the new phone). Before call blocking telephone I was pestered by the pre-recorded voice telling me that my boiler should be renewed. Absolute rubbish !!! I had pressed 9 as instructed every time to stop the calls but the calls persisted. I am registered with tps but they are completely toothless. Time the government pulled their finger out to enforce the laws preventing companies like this from harassing people and prosecute them instead of standing by effectively doing nothing to stop them.
I just look at this number and ignore it. They'll get sick before me.
Number calls at least twice everyday. I ignore it but I still have to go to telephone to see who it is on caller display. Very annoying.
Why can we not get off their dratted data base. I've been receiving these calls for long enough [ too long ] and no matter how often I press the key to be removed I'm not.
Twice a day. Very irritating.
Calls from this number are coming through more frequently - used to be once per week now sometimes twice in one hour. If I am in I do occasionally answer it and press 9 but it only seems to up the frequency. Last time I pressed 2 and before I even spoke I got some really grumpy woman ask "huh, well, are you the home owner then", when I asked why she was incessantly phoning this number she said "oh, you want the message back on then" and cut me off. I tried calling the number back but it said the number had been cut off.
I have written to my MP as the ICO have been effective and asked her to intervene. She has contacted the ICO and the letter of response from the anti spam team manager was bull, full of meaningless waffle about their success before going on to advise me to register with the TPS and complain to the ICO website. In other words next to useless. I have responded to my MP asking her to take this to a higher authority since the Team Manager can't or won't assist. These pests ring frequently and it seems I am not the only recipient. I suggest anyone affected contact their MP via write to them.com with a view to activate an investigation into these spammers.
Spam - 08443373970 Sorry - that should be the ico have been INEFFECTIVE
Irritating.!
I have tried the ICO and OFCOM as well as being registered with the TPS. Totally useless. Time to start a petition to make it illegal to cold call, silent call and recorded message call and then prosecute the offenders.
calls at least once a day trying to sell boilers press 9 to be removed no it doesn't
this is beginning to sound like the company who got fined last year
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.
Been called by this number several times over last 2-3 weeks.usually day time calls when I'm out at work but also weekends.im TPS registered.sick of these calls.what can be done to stop them?
automated spam pretending to be government driven. trying to flog boilers. had in excess of 50 calls from them in the last 2 months. hate them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Automated call about boiler replacement. Several times a day I am sick to death of them. TPS registered and ex-directory, they started as soon as our new line was put in. I might try complaining to Virgin.
08443373970 Energy Care Centre - "press 9 to be removed" nothing happens same again every day. Pressed 2 specifically told them to remove me from the list or I would report them - they hung up.
fed up of them calling me auto number told them to f off and phone put down pressed the 9 and still getting 12 calls a day starting at 8 in the morning got tps and reported something needs done
Hung up when they heard a woman's voice. Blocked it with a Call Saint. They'll just use a different phone number. DON'T dial anything to stop the calls. You'll probably be charged. TPS is a waste of space.
For months...getting these calls ....content as described by the other postings here. Pressed 9 to be removed....no difference. Went through to book my "energy assessment" appointment and complained ....cut off at first negative remark. Clearly a scam. After this call frequency of calls went up. Now they come at least twice a day. Where do I go to stop this?
Supposed government boiler scheme. This number has called repeatedly, sometimes more than hourly. Can't seem to stop them.
They call you on a premium rate number, block it and they come back on another number, answer and ask to be removed they abuse you. Pressing opt out and you get more calls from them. Answering results in more calls from other scammers as you have shown your line to be live. They are trying to get you to ring their PREMIUM RARE NUMBER, money in their pocktets, simple as that. Report to ICO
Harassment first class. Should be charged under the Harassment Act as calling more often than legislation allows. These scumbags should be brought to justice
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.
Is there a way to find the address of the holders of 0844 numbers?
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. !
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
08443373970 came home from a day out and had 3 missed calls from this number yesterday and already had my first call from them today and only 10.30am I live on a through road where a lot of people walk past my home and don't want anyone to hear my phone ringing and not being answered as a sign that house is unoccupied. TPS is no use
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!
08443373970 - have called multiple times per week despite being signed up to the TPS and pressing '9' to stop receiving calls. Going to report to ICO.
Their recorded message has been leaving itself on my answering machine at least 3 times a week for the past several weeks, telling lies about how every household in the UK MUST have an A-rated boiler by 2017.. Why does the ICO not prosecute these b"""""""""?
0844-337-3970 ... Calls everyday spouting lies... They state "Every household in the UK MUST have an A-rated boiler by 2017" They are SCAMMERS & SCUM these people
I keep receiving automated calls from this number even though every time I press 9 to be removed. I have even tried pressing 2 to speak to the person and told them to remove, but still the call keep coming.
National database. Scammers, have been calling me every day for weeks, possibly months. I have reported them to ofcom and 'action fraud'. Nothing seems to be getting done about it. The more people who report them the more likely it is that something might be done to close them down.
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?
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.
calls every day
Sick of coming home to answerphone messages from these scammers. Wish someone would actually take action and sue the scum.
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.
08443373970
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.
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
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???
On night shift. They called about two hours into my sleep. I'm not going to switch my phone off incase a family member phones. I've asked to be removed as I live in rented property and boiler replacement is nothing to do with me but still they phone.
Do not answer or press any number. 0844 is premium rate. Report to ico
Gas holier message with 0844 337 3970 and 0844 377 3979 and some others so have sky call baring its very handy to block these numbers.
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.
I'm at the end of my tether with these parasites. 3 or 4 calls daily for weeks! seriously considering disconnecting my landline just for the peace. If any political party outlawed these inconsiderate arseholes, they would be guaranteed my vote!
Bloody pest, never answer these calls yet they still ring several times daily.

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.
I have had 7 calls off these lot on Tuesday alone and 4 already today,the 1st one at 07:12 am ! I have never answered them,thanks to the info given by all you guys,but they still keep calling and still wake me up ! I am disabled and these calls are making me unwell and now it is so bad that I dont even bother to answer my phone at any time.I am ex directory but they got my number any way ???? What can we do to stop these types ? Any idea,s ? as blocking them is a waist of time.
Called today 3 times before 11-0am sick of them. I have bought BT 6600 and can now block 100 calls :-) .
08443373970 been calling for days now, don't press the option to be removed from their database as it clearly doesn't happen. I selected option 2 today to ask them to remove me but she cut me off when I said I don't want a boiler. Didn't get a chance to speak, just cut me off!
sounds quite threatening, telling me every household in the UK must have an energy efficient boiler by 2017, tells me to press option to call back for energy assessment. The latest sales gimmick, but quite threatening to elderly or less able, must be breaking the law, why isn't something done about these scammers, I get this call almost daily. Everyone should report to the ICO, I will, but I have my doubts about that organisation, when was a quango ever any good.
Calling me at least 4 times a day ! Have a caller display phone so I never answer it. They should be shut down !!!
this an assault on my privacy and rights someone has to do something against this intrusion!!
A lot of chap about every household in the UK needing to get energy efficient boilers by 2017. Last year it was the same message but it was by 2016. Pressing 9 doesn't seem to worry and I can imagine pressing 2 and politely asking to be took off their database doesn't either. Does anyone know what company or location these pain in the a**e calls are coming from?
They call 2 or 3 times a day
Reported them to ICO.
08443373970 constant harassment new boilers pressing 2 makes no difference,
spoke to an advisor to ask them to stop ringing me, told he would think about it. arsehole
the first time they rang, answered and found a recorded message, but put the phone down before the end, now they're ringing every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. There doesn't seem to be a way of stopping them. These people should be shut down.
Calls from this number started months ago, initially it was twice a week once a day, then it escalated to three or four times a week once a day, then every day once a day. Now to cut a long story short it is three times every day bar Sunday. Today alone since my son called me at 11.30 a.m. I have had an unavailable, four calls from 08443373970 and a call from 01793715550., all of which I am sure in some way are these boiler people everyone is talking about. I never answer on principle, privacy ha !!!! what is that, it doesn't exist anymore. This number is really harassing. With the escalation of calls could it be this government offer is about to end? I truly hope so.
I have blocked this call but they are still ringing 2, 3 or 4 times a day. It is just like being stalked
it is calling several times a day, and disturbing us. We check which number is calling before answering but it still wastes a lot of time.
Calling every day, recorded message, totally fed up with these calls about an energy efficient boiler. These people should be locked up for disrupting other people's lives.
These calls coming twice a day every day pain in the arse .
Recorded message .Reported to ico. Do not answer or press any number, this is premium rate number . Report every single call to the ICO it is the only way to win.
Had 5 calls today from this number! Sick to death of it now!!!
They called me twice yesterday & again today, I have a call blocker phone so there is no ringing I only see the blocked call when I pick up the phone to make a call or check for messages if I have been out. Totally fed up with these callers, when I want a new boiler or loft insulation I will talk to a proper tradesman not these pains in my A.... This number is now on my blocked list so won't get through again. It is also illegal to cold call people, especially if you haven't given them your number, yet still those darned computers keep dialing my ex-directory number. I have reported them to ICO and am registered with TPS so will report this harassment to them. When are we going to get the right to sue these companies for harassing us.
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.
08443373970 calls several times per day sometimes as early as 8am
Dead call. Harassment.
This number is a pain in the arse. Tried to stop them calling by pressing 9 still they call. pressed 2 this time and spoke to someone, he hung up on me mid sentence when I politely tried to ask him not to call my number grr !!
Fed up with them, get a proper job.
Totally fed up with this number ringing me while I'm out at work, and leaving voicemail messages. I'm now getting at least 2 or 3 calls a day. They should be stopped!
They ring 2 to 3 times a day, total nuisance
Absolutely sick and tired of being called every bl***y day by this number. Recorded message Re: Gov funded A rated boiler which every home must have before 2017! Please stop these calls, this is serious harassment!
Does anyone know if this is a British based company? And if so where they are based? Or who the telecom provider for the number is?
sick of this one
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.
I am amazed that all of you still have this ridiculous belief that these are simply scammers. They are criminals, if not terrorists. They want to find out if you are a real person, will talk to them so they can match up other personal details and steal your money!!!! Get a decent call blocker like BT and they will NEVER get through. If they don`t get through you don`t get stressed, they don`t get your money. Think about it.....
This number again today. If the telephone companies can't put an end to this the government should make it law that caller display and number blockers should be provided free of charge by the telephone companies to all users. Governments of every hew have promised to deal with this but never do.
This week I have had 16 calls from this number going to speak to someone then report it to ico....I am also on the TPS!!!
I'm receiving several calls a day from this number, some recorded message which I don't listen to and now don't pick up the phone. Absolute pain in the back.
Calls at least twice every working day for weeks and weeks. Reported to ICO today.
08443373970
They call themselves 'Work & Pensions' they are NOT the DWP and are a private pension co. Do not give financial info.
Sick to death of this number calling umpteen times od day every day for weeks now. How are they getting away with this
Same telephone number used for multiple calling companies so hard to know who is calling
Called several times this week. Would very annoying if it were not for BT Guardian blocking the number for us. We dont get any nuisance calls now. The phone registers the calls but they dont ring.
Guy called George very rude, thought he was a total smart arse
Several calls per day from 08443373970 with an automated message "if you're in receipt of benefits you may qualify for the new government scheme...blah blah blah!" I keep seeing this number on my missed calls and have made the mistake of answering a few times. It's driving me mad! I have blocked the number now. I thought we were supposed to be more in control of who calls us theses days, but it seems to be getting worse. We never had these types of calls 20 - 30 years ago. So much for consumer empowerment- it's non existent!
Calling several times a day. Really annoying wish there was a way to stop them.
Sorry, don't know - hung up immediately.
Every bloody day I come home to a missed call and message from this number!
energy care centre
Getting 4-5 calls a day from this number, logged on my caller display. They never seem to give up.I
Why is this company allowed to call at all??? What happened to nuisance callers being prosecuted? Every single day I get a 2 calls from this damn number, one in the morning and one in the evening. Could be 3 but I'm out most afternoons. How is this being allowed to happen??
Very rude smart arse, asked for his supervisor told he was at the pub, same for manager. Will not remove my number, denied calling and told me it was a figment of my imagination.
This number has been calling my landline approx. 7-8 times a day for the past 5 days. I always check 0844 numbers before I answer, so I have been ignoring this once I saw the negative comments left on this site.
This number call me several times a day with a recorded message. Complete waste of my time and its stressing me out
This number calls my landline at least 6-7 times per day... why can't someone do something about it... my 85 year old mother gets the same amount from this number too... it is making her ill, she thinks someone is watching her house to see if she is in... any ideas of how to stop it?
Recorded message several times a day very annoying
I can hear the call centre staff in the background but they just play the recorded message and ignore you. Complain to ICO.
Calls me 3-4 times daily. It is a recorded message. It drives me mad! I have reported this number to the Information Commissioners Office. You can do it online: www.ico.org.uk
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 ?
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?
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.
0844 337 3970 This number has been calling me every day for about a year, I have spoken to them 3 time and they say they will remove me from the database, today they called and I spoke to a guy called Thomas when I asked for the supervisor he just laughed and said lots of people want to speak to the supervisor and they just laugh at them, then he cut me off. its the National Database Energy Assesment
Usual national database energy saving scam call
Someone wanting to sell me a boiler

They have called a few times - no message! Thanks for all comments below!
Twice a day, everyday this week and for past several weeks. Very annoying..
Report to ICO just wish they would do something about it seems since numbers are no longer allowed to be withheld we are getting an influx of these annoying get cold callers. Registered with TPS doesn't seem to matter.
I get two calls a day from this number every day, always around the same time... Fu..!
Boiler Scam, leave it talking...... they are paying for the call, let them listen to the radio etc :)
Two calls yesterday from these nuisances. Reported both to the ICO. Please, everyone, report these and all others to the ICO. The more reports the quicker they will take action. Why should we have to pay extra to get a call blocker when we should not be getting these calls in the first place. Lets stamp tham out!
ThiS number called 4 times in a week about a replacement boiler. Pressing 9 to opt out of recieving these calls does not work.
Automated message about energy saving etc. I've had three calls this week and reported each one to the ICO. PLEASE report the number on the ICO website, it is the only way action will be taken against them.
This no. calls at least twice a day I do not answer ,my no. is registered with telephone preference but makes no difference ,I sick of it !!
multiple recorded message calls - up to several times a day. Can't something be done about these practices???
Got a call today and have reported it to the ICO. Will everyone please report each call to the ICO. They need to be pushed into taking action and they are the only people who can stop this continual harrassment!
Have received 24 calls from this number in the last three weeks. I have caller display so I just don't answer. I have also been in the TPS scheme for years but it makes no difference. Have decided that next time they ring I will book an assessment and when they turn up I will tell them face to face what I think of their calls. Maybe we should all do this and waste their time!
What/who is the ICO?
These people call me constantly twice a day, sometimes more. Tried several times to ask them to stop calling but they put the phone down. They just will not speak to you. The bloke at the other end always has a rough Glaswegian accent, so not sure if its a Scottish based scam.Total bastards. If you let them finish their recorded "yarn" and go to option 2 and are quick at least you can tell them to F off.
Report these calls to the ICO. The TPS registration only deal with live calls. Only the ICO deal with these recorded messages
This lot called me again today & for the umpteenth time..BT Call Guardian took care of them but reporting it anyway as they are quite persistent!
Persistent phone calls about energy/boilers. Ignores requests to stop calling.
Said they were the 'National Database'......I might be eligible for a boiler! Rubbish, and I'm sick of receiving numerous calls every day.
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.
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.!!
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.
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.
08443373970 phones every day, sometimes twice, feeling harassed by them.
"The national database..." recorded message. F**King sick of these guys. They call about 2x a day, same message. Reported to the ICO AGAIN. F**K you you POS scam companies I hope you get fined and shut down for good. Scum Bags
Keep calling several times a day using different numbers. i report them every time to the ICO (information commissioner's office). Just hope they shut them down
Unwanted call, "the national database says you have to have your house checked by 2107". No i dont want a new boiler, ive already got one. They like to call almost everyday, using automated caller. Please report to ICO everyone, so they can catch them and shut them down.
I have had numerous calls from this number. Also from 8443373015 and 08443373019. I just cancel the call as soon as I see the number on caller display.
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.
The National F**KING DATABASE yet again. Reported to ICO, 2nd call today from them. I actually called the ICO and spoke to someone at the ICO as well on 01625 545 745 option 4. If anyone else wants to ring the ICO too.
"The National FKING DATABASE" yet again.. I'm reporting every call to ICO, suggest everyone does the same.
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.
The people here keep ringing and we are fed up with them. We don't answer their calls, but we have to spend valuable time checking the phone.
0844373970
Get calls from these people at least once, sometimes twice a day. They are a real nuisance. I am reporting every call to the ICO in the faint hope they will take some action. The more who report this number each time they call the better the chance of the ICO doing something.
08443373970 National database. Its a nuisance. Called 3 time today. Calling daily.
they no longer leave a message. just wait for you to call and be charged premium rate.
Calling at least twice a day despite blocking it. Bought a BT phone with call guardian at least it won't let it through if no name given!
"The national FKING Database".. yet again... I wish these halfwits would just F**K OFF.
Call three times a day everyday automated message How are they allowed to harass people this way I'm tps but that makes no difference
Unknown caller, no message left and calling multiple times. Adding to phone directory as 'unwanted' As others have found, we are registered with TPS and, sadly, it seems to make no difference to the receiving this type of call.
A message a day, currently, as we may qualify for a government grant for a new A rated boiler. Boring. Will be blocking ASAP.
This number has called me countless times, twice today! I am ex directory and registered with the TPS! My phone memory for call blocking is completely full of similar type of calls so I can't avoid it. Surely there must be something we can do to stop this uninvited soliciting!
They call at least once a day about a boiler I don't need a new farging boiler we already have one have tried to stop them by pressing the number given no good tried going through to them but as soon as they realised I was trying to stop the calls they hung up TPS by the way is a useless toothless waste of time
Been advised by Ofcom to ignore these calls completely. If you answer it registers that someone lives at the address and they'll never stop. Pressing 'take me off the list' simply registers a response too. I asked once to be taken off the list and the wee git hung up on me! Horrible harassing company.
National data base telling me i may qualify for a free boiler - rings me 3 times a day & i can't block the call.
Keep calling, so I keep reporting to the ICO. Suggest everyone does as that will be the only way to stop them when they are heavily fined.
National database
It is a persistent unwanted pest that keeps ringing despite our number being restricted
"UK National Database...if you are on benefits, you can claim towards an A rated boiler...Government funded scheme until 2017 yadda yadda...press 2 for an appintment, 9 to stop these calls..." If only that worked. Reported to ICO.
Like others I receive up to 3 calls a day from this no. Have put it in my blocked list but it still rings out. My phone can block only 10 nos; had I realised that I would have bought another type, as there are over 30 nos I want to block.
this is a bloody nuisance call. It rings several times a day and i'm bloody sick to death of it.
this is a bloody nuisance call. It rings several times a day and i'm bloody sick to death of it.
Recorded message. Reported to https://ico.org.uk/ as usual.
Nuisance call. Several times a day
second call today from the same organisation. "UK National Database" records show you haven't claimed - money off an A rated boiler - press 9 to stop receiving - waste of time. This is harrassment.
Fed up with receiving this type of call. Always automated and although varying slightly, eg. year changed from 2016 to 2017, the female's voice remains the same. TPS is absolutely useless. Given up reporting anything to them as they always have an excuse to do nothing. Have been registered with TPS for more years than I can remember!
I am sick of these calls and I am concerned about older people who get them several times a day why are they not stopped and fined before they cause more distress .
Have been called 3 times today about qualifying for boiler, have told them to remove me, but still getting them
After a lull of a couple of weeks these boiler scammers are back at it again. Reported to ICO as they are actively collecting evidence to prosecute the nuisances.
Do not communicate with them at all it is premium rate. Answering proves you line is live and they sell it on, resutling in even more calls. Report to ICO.
08443373970 Have asked to be removed many times from the data base but the calls keep coming
08443373970 National database boiler nuisance calls. calls business lines and blocks genuine callers and fills up last caller rediail so cannot call back genuine business calls.
So-called National Data Base. Have had dozens of calls from them and they are a number one nuisance who deserve to be fined heavily for constant harrassment.
BEWARE do not answer spam. Premium rate number you will be charged for the call. Report to ICO
Free Replacement Central Heating Boiler Scam. Not called for a few days so was beginning to think they had fu** off but they are back. Reported to ICO again..
National data base. Frequent annoying caller.
This is a scam. Automated voice service has called numerous times in the past, often upwards of double figures per day. UK National Database to replace all boilers by 2017....and a load of other rubbish thereafter. The automatic voice informs you that if you want to speak to an advisor press 2, otherwise press 9 to stop receiving the calls. Pressing 9 does not stop the calls. I have reported to ICO. When I did press 2 on a few occasions to ask to stop I was met with obscene language asking me to go procreate with myself etc. Very rude scam.
A call from this number today straight after the other scam number allegidly from telephone preference "managements". (02030191569). What has annoyed me since numbers are now not withheld, is the frequency of these scam calls. I'm now getting at least 7-10 calls a DAY. and im already registered with the TPS. Some are even mobile phone numbers so I pick up thinking its a friend. Who can I complain to with these scam numbers as I'm taking a note of every single one.
Sometimes silence, sometimes automated voice.... PITA
Just had a call from them. They are a frequent nuisance. Is it beyond that whit of man that BT could not just block these numbers. Who the hell allocated the number in the first place!!! Oh and by the way - the 'I'm not a Robot" bollocks verifier on this site is WAY over the top. SO I'm not reporting anything else here, either!
Boiler
Come on its 2016 ofcom/tps/virgin media/bt get your arsenal in gear communicate with each other and get these sods stopped.
"The national database" yet again (2x a day usually). FFS JUST F**K OFF AND DIE!
scam.......
Yet another lying so & so trying to frighten people. I hung on to speak to a person to ask them to stop harassing me. I informed them that I have signed up to TPS & was then called a liar, that I was not registered. Just checked & am registered. Next time will keep promise & call the police.
Low life.... Brainless twats...only job they can get and can't even do that right. I asked them to remove my elderly mothers phone number from their database and they hung up. When I was called same day at my house I explained what had happened....but George also hung up. That says it all about the Company standards.
Have been called four times in two days from this number despite signing up to TPS. An automated call referring to a "National Database"! It's a scam and a premium rate number. Can the caller be prosecuted?
Someone who wanted to assess our boiler because all UK houses have to be done by next year.
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.
Boiler.... Pressed 9 to be removed from their 'data base' but it makes no damn difference...calls still keep harassing me. Sick to death of them :(
Every single day this number phones. I don't answer it.
Boiler replacement. Came home to find 12 new calls on my phone. 8 were from these idiots. Tried blocking. Just don't answer.
Been getting at least 3 calls daily for the last three weeks and just ignore it
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?
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.
Extremely annoying and calling me 2-3 times a day....I have no intetion of replaying at my own cost....why is it allowed?
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.
Boiler - fed up with this number calling 5x since 10am already today!!!! Just ignore it & never answered it but they still keep phoning ?
Nuisance caller, several calls every day.
Got another call today. Get calls every day and am reporting each one to ICO. Please, everyone, report these nuisances and we might, at lastt, get some action from the ICO!
Had two calls in three days. I've tried pressing the number to me removed from their calling list, but they ignore it. I've reported the calls to the ICO and would urge everyone who receives them to do the same. It's the only way action will be taken against them.
"The National Database shows that you have not yet..." It's driving me insane. I report it every time now - but why can't it just be stopped. If it were a person I know, it would be a Police matter - but they get away with it.
Ive refused to answer the phone as this number phoned approx 4 times every single day!
08443373970
08443373970 sick to death of calls from this number. I m getting 3 to 4 a day n never answer it. About time it was stopped
08443373970 - 2 or 3 calls a day with recorded message.
08443373970
Having been inundated with calls from this number and one other can we not trace them and but them on the national griddle and put it on full heat!
It might be these people Etc Telecom Limited Address:124 Livery StreetPostcode/City:B3 1RS Birmingham - Gun QuarterCounty:West Midlands England Phone: 0121 236 3891
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 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.
I think it is time there was an inquirery in to the ICO . They are doing nothing about this number. Time to contact our MP'S
Call 3-4 times a day. Thoroughly sick of our business being harassed.
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 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.
08443373970 - PESTS!
Calls several times a day.
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.
This number and company needs removing at least 3 calls a day TPS does nothing asked for details to be removedf off their database it wasn't I will lynch somebody before long if someone doesnt act and stop this and have taken to reprting it every day to the ICO in the hope they do something !!!!!!!
Recorded message! Just back from holiday and had 16 of the same messages on my answer machine. Absolute harassment!!
Boiler renew
why do I have to waste my time with these …. callers?!!!!
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,
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!
Calls up to 5 times a day.Nuisance call.On returning from holiday answering service had been blocked as automated messages had filled message box,why cant anybody not do anything about these calls,over a month I had nearly 30 calls from this no.
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.
silent call, no message left.
These calls are a real pest and need to be stopped
This number presents a persistent, misleading piece of automated marketing, supposedly for replacement boilers. It is such a frequent caller that it should count as harassment. If you press the respond button, the female operator who replies is outrageously offensive.
I received at least 4 calls from this number a day without exception. I've stopped answering as there's no one there. A nuisance been going on for weeks
shove your boilers up your ar$e
replacement boiler garbage
daily call
computer keeps phoning (I am with TPS) implying that all households need to be done.......
Fed up of this lot constantly ringing.....i never ever answer these numbers so why do they insist on calling after no answer 5x everyday?? I have missed work calls after muting my house phone as i am that fed up hearing my phone ringing with these idiots ???? surely there must be a way of blocking them as clearly being ex-directory & registered with TPS does sweet FA ????
Four times in a week I received this recorded message about replacement boiler grants. Two options at the end, to speak to a consultant while they are in the area or press 9 to opt out of receiving these calls. Not worth it as it does not work. I still get such calls. Report it every time
These people make at least one unsolicited call per day. I have pressed 9 to opt out of further calls, but this has no effect.
Recorded message on phone about a govt scheme to give grants for something. HANG up ITS RUBBISH
