I had a call yesterday evening from a lady saying that if I was over 60 I could get a 'Government Grant' to install Solar Panels and save/make myself loads of money. I asked her if she knew just how long it take to recover the cost of installation and she said she didn't.
Firstly the Government Grants for this finished 2 or 3 years ago, although I believe there is some other scheme now.
Secondly I asked her why she was calling me and she said 'You came up on my system.' I then asked if she knew about TPS and she said 'Yes' so I asked her again why she was calling me and got the same reply. I then reminded her that she should check whether people were on TPS, told her not to call again and rang off.
On checking 1471 it came up with a local number who obviously pay no attention at all to the TPS rules.
I just called the number and got the following message. "You were called today by the Go Green Group. The call was not urgent, we will call you back soon. Press 1 to remove your number". This is a Hull based company so the local number is obviously some sort of agent and the option to automatically remove your number means they get an awful lot of p*&^ed off people calling them back.
