  • October 19, 2021 at 7:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Canary Wharf, London, England, United Kingdom

    I've received spam calls from supposedly Reading and Truro courts. I'm relatively savvy so have blocked the numbers but am concerned for those not so aware.

  • October 4, 2021 at 11:44 AM by an anonymous user from: Windsor and Maidenhead, England, United Kingdom

    Received a call today from this number stating reading county court. I’ve just called back and said the office is now closed. It seem really real. I was really worried about it as I didn’t know why a court would be trying to contact me. I then found this thread. Very worrying

  • October 4, 2021 at 11:41 AM by an anonymous user from: Swindon, England, United Kingdom

    I have received 2 calls from 01189870500 Reading County Court and Family Court yesterday (Sunday 3/10/22 and today) very convincing but didn't respond, glad I didn't now.

  • October 4, 2021 at 4:50 AM by an anonymous user from: EC2, London, England, United Kingdom

    I have had several of these calls over a period of months, but never know whether to answer or not, as it does come up with the READING COUNTY COURT & FAMILY COURT. Obviously am not sure if legitimate or not?

  • October 4, 2021 at 4:43 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    01189870500

    They called me Fri, Sat and again this morning. Luckily I have enabled scam blocking on my phone, so all I get is a notification that they called, looked up the number today, couldn't believe how professional this scam is. Only the fact I know courts don't open on weekends, I looked into it further

  • October 4, 2021 at 4:41 AM by an anonymous user from: Hammersmith, London, England, United Kingdom

    Starting with Friday 01/10/2021 I have received three calls so from from the the phone number 01189870500.

    Caller is an automated machine which which starts playing about 3 seconds after answering the call. Tells me I am about to be prosecuted and there will be severe penalties if I do not comply with court officers requests. The only option available is "Press 1 to speak to a case officer", at which point I hung up and ignore this number now.

  • October 4, 2021 at 4:35 AM by an anonymous user from: West Midlands, Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

    This number 01189870500 has phoned my mobile twice in 2 days I didn't answer the call as I have no dealings or issues with thus company

  • October 4, 2021 at 3:54 AM by an anonymous user from: Rochdale, England, United Kingdom

    received calls two days on the trot. why is there no action being taken against these people.

  • October 4, 2021 at 3:50 AM by an anonymous user from: Victoria, London, England, United Kingdom

    I bave just received a call from these guys theatening "serious" further action if I don't comply! I was a little concerned until that point.

    The call does look genuine but is suspect in many ways, one of which is that I live nowhere near Reading. If they call say and press nothing, hold the line, after a short wait the line will be cut automativally because the scammer (machine) doesn't want to waste any more time. Doing nothing and saying nothing will eventually teach the machine that it may be talking to a data number, meaning a fax or modem tyoe device or simular and may automatically delete you from its call list.

    Thanks for the heads up.
