If you’ve received a phonecall from a James Cooper claiming to be from the UK Construction Guide, you’re probably the victim of an attempted scam. Another day, another attempt at extorting hard earned cash from hard working people!
I received a call today from him. He claimed at I agreed at the end of August to place an advert in their September edition and that payment was due. I knew this was a lie because I know exactly what I spend my advertising budget on and where it goes; and that’s purely online advertising. I don’t advertise in magazines or trade newspapers for various reasons.
When I informed me of this he said they had a call recording of me placing the order and an order form. I asked for a copy of both, to which he replied “I’ll get a copy and come back to you”.
He never did…
