Spam call: MediaExperts@Europe.Com Phone 0033172300830

Today I got a call from telephone number 0033172300830

The person spoke in a foreign to me accent and told me I had taken out an advertisement last year. I haven’t advertised in about 9 years, if ever. He also said he spoke to my receptionist. I wish I had one. But I haven’t had a ‘person to answer the phone’ for about 3 too many years.

I explained I had no receptionist. In a forceful voice which became louder and very angry I was asked repeatedly if I was calling him a liar.

The voice also said they had tried to send me a fax. My fax machine hasn’t operated in a long time either. As I dont have one.

The phone rang 6 times non stop and eventually an email cam in from the address MediaExperts @ Europe . Com. There is no writing in the email. Just a link with the following PDF

I also put the number into google and came up with this link to who calls me. It seems I’m not the only one to get the calls. From a quick google of the email address this link was the one that came up first.

I was asked at one point to sign the form and return it by fax to cancel my order. I’m no Columbo – but that would make it an order and an agreement, would it not ?

For fear of anyone else getting a bill for €1,398 for something they dont even know about – and as this blog is the only means of letting others know/ find out of I’m the only one, unfortunately possibly, I’m publishing the story here.

I asked a legal friend of mine for their thoughts. I got the following response:

Ignore ignore ignore. Dodgy. No harm reporting what happened.

Offer & acceptance makes a contract. All that’s missing is the consideration (money). They could possibly use it to chase u
