Call from "The UK Data Centre"?

This last few days has seen many people calling in to our office to complain about some kind of data gathering exercise being operated out of the Philippines and claiming to call from "The UK Data Centre" to ask you to update your details. Which details we are not clear but it is primarily an ID gathering exercise.

I would like to stress - it is not my company making these calls. We never make sales calls, we only call people who use the callback feature on the website or who have a problem processing a payment.

If you do receive a call like this, asking for personal information, hang up.

There have been some other complaints online also -

p.s. Shares on twitter to get this post out to the widest audience much appreciated.
