I just got an unsolicited call from Analysts Hall, using a mobile number 0467 145 472. That number is currently not accepting incoming calls.
The giveaway was the usual “they legally acquired my details from a marketing campaign” and I signed up to receive information on automated trading. No I never use my details to sign up for anything financially related.
The caller was in a noisy call centre and had a Filipino accent. So it’s probably an outsourced lead generation company in Cebu City.
Regardless of my answers he kept going with his script. But I’m busy today and cut him short without my usual questions.
Anyway this is a quick post to alert you that a new scammer is doing the rounds.
Stay safe and never give unsolicited financial services telemarketers your details. Especially when they claim you can’t lose.
Edit: I decided to look at who is behind this company. Boris Stefan, in Budva, Montenegro, really? Fake details guaranteed.
