Just thought I would mention what I think is probably a scam.    I was rung today by a telephone number from Manchester requesting I pay an invoice of £189. as sponsorship for a Drug and Alcohol book being distributed to schools.    On further questioning, I am supposed to have agreed to this sponsorship some time ago, having spoken to this person on the telephone.      For one I cannot recall any previous telephone call and two, there is no way I would sponsor that type of money.   I did ask what type of school she thought I was running, but she made no comment.  The call ended rather abruptly as it became apparent to her that I was not going to part with any money!

I could be wrong and it may have been legitimate, but something felt wrong.    I did google the telephone number and apparently 0161 numbers are used frequently for those calls you get often at the same time of day, or answer and there's nobody there,

Definitely a scam Panders - we've been hit by very similar calls in the past here. Parasites!

We get calls like this as well, often saying "Thank you for supporting us last year and we hope we can rely on you again this year" when we have never supported them at all.  You have to be so careful!
