Anyone else get an early morning call from PC World

I was rudely awoken at 6.30 this morning from someone claiming to be calling from PC World. Wanting to know if my internet connection had become slow.

All I could say was "No, why are you phoning me at this hour in the morning!?" To which he replied "It's what time we open"

I was fuming, and couldn't get back to sleep after. Anyone else get a phone call?

pc world aren't an internet service provider, why would they be interested?! unless they want to try and get you buy a new router.

Why would PC World be asking if your internet connection was slow? It's not like they are an ISP. Probably was a sales call from a foreign? call centre and/or a prank call.

Most likely be the same Indian scammers who called me from Microsoft's Web Monitoring centre after noticing that one of my pcs had a virus...*ahem*...perhaps they're trying the name of a UK company to drum up more interest!

Oops, my bad =/

The guy on the phone was Irish. My girlfriend says she knows a couple of people who got called by them. It was on my mobile which was a little odd. Looks like someone's been selling there customer database.
