Watch Out For The Rogue Telephone Sales Groups

If you have a mobile phone which is coming to the end of its contract you will likely soon receive a call from a company offering you the chance to renew your contract and choose a free phone from the many new ones on offer. They will blind you with science, they will hit you with the newest tariffs available and they will often try to talk you into a deal there and then. But who are these people? Did you call them? Do they actually know you?

Many people are lulled into a false sense of security and believe that because they have dialled their mobile number they are in some way connected to their current mobile network provider. They may well be selling products and contracts from your current provider, but they will either have access to a list of expired or expiring contract numbers, else they will be using a machine which tries every combination of mobile phone numbers in the UK.

If you are looking to upgrade your mobile phone or renew your contract, go to the people you bought from in the first place, they are the only ones with access to your account. Signing up to a random caller on the phone is easy, but being locked into a long term expensive contract is not so easy to pay off.
