Use your common sense.

Personally I wont use anyone who have got hold of my details with my knowlege.

Some names and words wont get past the sweary filter. Brands, Agents, companies, other sites etc. New ones get added every day.

I think they offer 'financial services'. I've had a call from them before. What happens is when your friends or colleagues use there services then they ask them to give them, say 5 names and contact details, they then go and try and sell there services to those contacts.

Good point, well put... Have to admit, I think that as soon as you reach 40+ you have to start thinking about that!!

Gives me a year or two of wild spending before I have to worry about it!!!!

they have a very bad rep, rely on this cold calling, and are basically cowboys...there are enough other good companies out there not to have to bother with this one...

fair point, i know this it was just a bit of a statement you made..

There has been lots and lots of threads on here about PIC De... and a lot of comment.

All ill add is that i have a few policies with them, and have discussed in person with a IFA who posts on here, who couldnt really find fault with any of them..

BUT they do cold call and that pisses me right off.

Yesterday i recieved a call from some knobber in Abu Dhabi. I told him i already have a policy, so he just hung up. 10 minutes later the mob goes off again and its some bint spouting the same...

LEAVE ME THE **** ALONE....
