Hi All Quick warning, sounds like another advertising scam. Just had a call from someone introducing themselves as “Smile UK”. She mentioned that I placed an order with them back in May for an advert and she was just following it up, as they hadn’t received payment. She wanted my credit card number so I could pay the £195 + vat. I mentioned that I didn’t speak with anyone regarding advertising. She then said that they were a children’s charity and my artwork had been completed, and I just needed to pay for it. Again, I said I had never placed an order, never spoke with anyone, and so didn’t need to pay for any artwork. Her tone of voice was really annoyed and she spoke really muffled and I had to ask her to repeat herself several times. Be careful

I got a call awhile ago, not even sure who it was from. But they were like we have part of your bank account number, if you just give us the rest, we will give you some reward. And Im like are you serious? Do you think Im that stupid? And when I wouldnt give it to them, they became rather rude.
