A couple of weeks ago we got a phone call one evening from an outfit called ‘Wellington Business Statistics’. They were doing a ‘survey’ and asked for incredibly detailed financial information. Salaries, mortgage size, amount owing, amount saved for retirement etc. It seemed incredibly suspicious. They aren’t registered with the companies office and a Google Search for ‘Wellington Business Statistics’ doesn’t bring up a web site for the them. Mostly it hits people asking about them on twitter, and one tweeter alleging:
If you get a phone survey from “Wellington Business Statistics“, hang up – it’s a front for a finance sales scam – they don’t exist
Someone I follow on twitter tweeted about them again today. Anyone else know anything about ‘Wellington Business Statistics’?
