just had a knock at the door from 3 lads from Liverpool claiming to be from Marks Group energy services. Just wondering if anybody else has had a knock from them tonight. I asked the lad to leave his details to which he replied he had ran out of business cards. he then wrote his number on a scrap piece of paper. I tried calling it after he left and it said it couldn't connect my call. What do you think, scam or no scam?

Almost certainly a scam, you did well not to be taken in.
There was a report of lads knocking with a similar story.These said they were from the gas people but had left their ID at a previous call.Could they come in to check the loft insulation.

Suspect everybody seems to be the only answer these days!

there is a company called Mark Group but I'm sure his badge had an 'x' instead of a 'k'.

just tried the number again, it rang out and a lad answered. i didn't say anything and hung up straight away. at least i now know the number is genuine. also forgot to say the lad who I spoke to at the door did have an ID badge.

Where abouts are you? - We had some men knock before but didn't answer (don't answer when dark unless I'm expecting someone) - they obv didn't know local area as went wandering off up dead end (but now I'm thinking were they checking area out?...) - everywhere will be double double checked tonight!

I would advise anyone to not answer the door to cold callers.in my fight against tv licensing i have learned not to open the door to anyone .it is the best way to deal with the cold calling scum from the bbc.
