Within a Week of Signing up I Get a Lot of Spam Calls

Other

Within a week of signing up to this website and applying for a few competitions suddenly I started getting lots of spam and fraudulent phone calls. This seems to be more of another method of collecting our contact details and selling them on.

It won't be from latest deals I didn't have to give my phone number. The calls would be from entering you phone number into competitions. Where they sell your number on to third parties, you could always leave number box blank or put fake number in

I'm sorry to hear you are receiving spam calls. To clarify, at present, Latest Deals does not ask for telephone numbers when you sign up to our website. We do not store any telephone numbers of members, nor do we sell telephone numbers or any contact information, of any kind to any other companies. If you wish to see what personal data we do hold on your account, you can go to your settings > download personal data.

If you are entering competitions, please note these are posted on our website by members of the public, and when you click "Enter Competition" you are leaving Latest Deals and visiting an external website of a third-party with no affiliation to Latest Deals unless otherwise explicitly stated. We recommend that you do not share your personal data with other websites for competitions, but instead is recommended practice to have a separate email address and a separate telephone number for the activity of entering competitions.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us. As this is a personal support query I will now close this Chat thread.
