There's another telemarketing scam going around at the moment, and I'm sure many of you will have had a call from 'The Taxation Examiner'.
I got one the other day, with the caller insisting I need to subscribe to their newsletter because of the massive tax savings I'll be able to make.
You can guess my response...
However, one person I know was more polite and agreed to receive their free information for consideration.
It arrived in the post and he put it aside to look at later. Later was about a month. When he opened it he discovered an invoice inside with a letter saying he had 14 days to assess the information and, if he didn't return it within two weeks, it meant that he agreed to subscribe for a year and needed to pay the invoice within 30 days.
This is a standard scam and just another idea why you should never be nice to telemarketers.
Just to add confusion to the issue 'The Taxation Examiner' has a page on their website warning people about telemarketers claiming to be from their company... when they're not.
Very bizarre. Read the full explanation here and hang up on a telemarketer today!
