Years ago when I rang my local Bank I got through on the local number . When the call center's were transfered oversea's and I rang the number printed on the statement and spoke to someone with an Indian accent thousand of miles away who transfered me back to my branch. They had all my details on there screens in India .
If you ever saw the documentory on TV where the film crew set up a meeting in a hotel lobby in India and a chap was selling lists of Britsh account numbers and credit card details to anyone who paid the price. Interesting watching it was.
We were sold down the river by BT in order to make them more profit.
I'm getting the overeseas calls every week now sometimes 2 a day ,automated voices as well as a real con person and I'm getting pretty sick of it too.
