Anyone heard of Global Group (Europe)?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've been getting calls from a UK telephone number. Unfortunately I haven't managed to answer it in time to hear what they were after, but after a quick bit of Googling, I've discovered that the number is registered to Global Group (Europe) who seem to based in Tower Hamlets. This seems a bit odd to me as I have no business connnection to this company at all, and don't even live in the UK any more.

    Have any of you ever heard of them? Are they scammers of some sort or just confused?

  2. No idea.
    However your question has made it to fourth place on Google!
  3. I have a sneaking suspicion that they're debt collectors. I got a few emails last year about someone with the same name as me who owed some money.

  5. I've got £7.89 in change, a fake Rolex and an old VHS video recorder if you're interested?
  6. After three hours of auto-searching it transpires that a company of that name was dissolved on the instructions of Companies House. The Company number was 03233800 and trading from the address you have supplied. Can only suggest you are very wary in your dealings.

  7. Thanks for the help Emsav. I'll be on my guard.

  8. Scamsters... they are trying tos ell you something......
  9. If you answer the phone and someone with a blatantly foreign accent says, "Hello, my name is Brian", it's scammers. Or Virgin Media.

    As if there is any difference...
  10. Tower Hamlets - highest ethnic population in the capital.

    Nothing dodgy going on there then
  11. These type of scum bags even phone my German home number, **** knows where they get it from (he says tucking his dodgy internet porn and whore links book into the secret drawer).
    My teenage kids usually bear the brunt of the calls as they finish school at midday. they either just say "wait a minute I'll get my dad!" and just put the phone down near the hi fi loadspeakers , or they greet the caller with a cheery teutonic "**** off!"
