hello, i got a phone call from t-mobile, the operator was foriegn because he had a french-italian accent. He asked me if i wanted a new phone, i asked him twice about who the phone call about and he said 'im just on any phoneline'
He asked my personall details and i kept saying why. he also akes my adress, but i didnt tell him after that I said no thanks and put it down as fast as i could.
Was i right to do so??
Thanks
Rizsparky :)

I've had a couple of these with people claiming to be phoning on behalf of from t-mobile saying that I've won a free 12 month contract with free phone. The last one was from a guy who was speaking very quietly, with an indian sounding accent and obviously from a script. I just said no and hung up...

Its interesting that I've never entered a competion for t-mobile (I've got a voda contract any way), I very rarely give my home phone number out, and yet they asked for me by name.

Its usually marketing companies, first this i ask for is if they have a telephone number that i can contact them on, there company name, and if i like what they are offering i phone up the network helpline and they can verify if it is real,
But i agree with the identity stealing part, also remember people in the UK do it aswell not just foriegners
