Telephone call-not the one I was expecting [a Gas engineer]but an 'American' voice calling all Visa MasterCard -etc., users about increasing interest rates it went on- 'Speak to a LIVE' agent now!
At this point I hung up- what would it all lead to I wondered - if I had allowed it to continue.

I had one the other night purporting to be from the Halifax (one of my banks) - easy to spot the genuine from the rubbish, especially as the woman claimed it was Halifax On-Line Banking...:-)
