So I've just been called by FHM, as I was a subscriber a few years ago (birthday present), asking if I want to have a new sub - 15 quid for a whole year, or 3 issues for a quid, no obligation, nothing to cancel, just that 3 issues for a quid.
Ready to hangup but thought ah it's only a quid and he DID say I don't have to cancel, so I goes through it all with him, then at the payment stage he asks for sort code?!
I've never been asked for sort code over the phone before, and alarm bells started to ring, how did I know it was legit? So I asked him to email me the offer so I could sub online- he tells me he can't as it's only going for a week and over the phone.
Apparently this bloke has been trying to call me during the week about 4 times, and now is gonna call back on Monday as I 'couldn't find my card'
So, 3 issues for a quid with no obligation sounds decent, but, was I right to be so paranoid?
