Hello Barnaby,

One or two a month maybe.
A month?!  We get barely that many in a year.

I notice the calls are generally during business hours - these people are trying to scam those most likely to fall for it - pensioners. Though I never answer the phone between 18:20 and 18:40 as this is almost guaranteed to be some kind of scam call. Occasionally I feel up for a battle and answer and they ask to speak to the people who used to live here 17 years ago so I' guessing the databases being sold around are never cleaned.
