Anyone have innformation on this firm click here
selling insurance for satellite services.

Just had a call from them, £79 for a years insurance and the guy got most upset when I would not give him my bank sort code and account number.

They sound astonishingly similar to a firm that has appeared many times on Watchdog. Anyone who called me and got upset if I did not want to do business with them, would never have a chance again as it smacks of commission driven sales which have not got a terribly good track record..

If you ever do need insurance for satellite services, or any electrical domestic item, try your domestic home insurance company first.

We leave our answer phone on most of the time ... it doesn't know my bank details either !

The real person behind Systemguard is John Crane.

Last year, Sky won a High Court injunction against Crane, banning him from running a business that rang people up and sold them satellite repair plans by falsely claiming to be part of Sky

Phil Thomas of Hampshire County Council's trading standards service would be interested in hearing from people who have information regarding their sales tactics.
