The company in question is LBM Marketing. They first phoned me on Monday evening, I was not interested in what they were trying to get me to sign up for, and I was busy so I hung up. They tried phoning again yesterday (Tuesday) my other-half answered the phone and then hung up. Promptly 30secs later I get a text saying I had insufficient credit to sign-up for Internation Calls 3 Bolt-on. I hadn't signed up for this as I have no reason to make any international calls, so by power of deduction LBM didnt like being hung-up on. I spoke to O2 and they rectified the problem and gave me £2 credit. So I thought that would be the end of it.
Again today I got a text from O2 saying I had successfully sign up for the basic tariff, again I hadn't done this. I contacted O2 and they put me back on the tariff I was originally on and gave me 50mins free calls and 50 free texts.
I am hoping this doesnt happen again tomorrow. I guess the moral of the story is: Don't P-off LBM Marketing or they will get their revenge!!

These jokers phoned me yesterday to try and flog me a contract. They then had the cheek to tell me my PAYG sim is not registered!

Those numbers won't accept incoming calls crew, they are pretty much a one way marketing system that will get you bad if you are too loose with your information and privacy. Its an unfortunate truth.

I have just received a phone call from this number and an African sounding guy talked to me about how i pay too much for what i use on my mobile. He seemed to know my recent top-up info as well as what numbers i call (o2/non o2). He said i was to provide information to fill in an application form which would enable me to get a sim which then meant i pay much less for what i do now and get a better deal in the process. He asked for things such as full name, email address, landline number, address, all that stuff and then he wanted me to type my bank details into the phone to provide him. All i'm wondering is that is this genuine or is it some sort of scam. I made up an excuse by saying i didnt have my card on me at that time as i didnt know if i could trust it or not. I'm worried that if i provide my bank details, then potential criminals could access my account :/ any help would be much appreciated...

You should never give out any information of that kind over the phone to someone you can't be sure of.
As in the thread above it sounds like LBM who are an O2 agent, but they're not supposed to be phoning you for business.

it seemed really genuine at the time as he new a lot about me and my top-up info etc. H e said he was going to set up and o2 reward thing for me and and a minute later i got a text from o2 about the rewards they put me on. All this makes it seem genuine but part of me is unsure about it. The offer of the new sim he offered to put me with sounded great aswell but i dunno :/
