SwissGlobal

Just got a cold call from "Swiss Global" - which sounded a lot like DeVeere....

Has anyone dealt with them before?

Re: SwissGlobal

New one to me, though isn't that one of the funds they offer..

Had one from a Montfort International last week, the caller said they had my name from their chief advisor Barry Scott (also a character in a cillit bang advert)...which made me laugh before hanging up.

Re: SwissGlobal

Also watch out for Guardian Welath Management which is headed up by an ex-Devere long termer and has others on the payroll.

Re: SwissGlobal

Genuine question - Am I the only one that screens calls? If I don't know who is calling, I don't answer.

I do, on my private phone. At work I do not always recognize all the numbers or it gets put through from reception

I do same .. But at work, they call reception and pretend to be calling from another branch or a vendor or similar tactic.. My office phone tells me reception/security is calling me..

Security do occasionally call me to authorise visitors etc.. so not 100% practical to ignore the calls.

No one ever calls me at work, not even colleagues, so that didn't even cross my mind!
