To the people of this forum;
I am a 17 year old former employee of the people calling you. The company you are receiving these phone calls is called Central Claims Group.
I'm a new user so I can't post links, apologies.
Here is how to find the website; google Central Claims Group, and it will be the top website.
I'm not here to defend this company, in fact I despise them for what they're encouraging, and just for general poor customer and employee care.
I will emphasise however, that this isn't a scam. They are just cold calling random people, using numbers from the phone book, and trying to persuade any poor soul unlucky enough to admitting to working in a noisy environment into going down to a hearing test and then going on to claim compensation from their former employers for Industrial Deafness.
They are breaking several laws/legislation, as technically if you tell the company you are not interested, they are not allowed to ring you for at least 28 days. Many people receive 28 phonecalls in 7 days. They are also not complying to any sort of Telephone Preference Service regulation. Lastly they are grossly mis-selling the services they offer. They often tell the recipient of the call that legislation regarding Industrial Deafness has "recently changed." Bulls**t.
Long story short, these people harass, push up insurance premiums, and are also a burden on what little industry and manufacturing remain in our country.
I urge anyone who is sick of these calls to take the following measures;
Make sure you deregister your number from the phonebook.
Sign up to the Telephone Preference Service
And complain by the procedure listed here:
