Topic # 140925 24-Feb-2014 17:54 One person supports this post Send private message

We had a sky leaflet in out letterbox today.

Written on it by hand was a note that makes it clear that the person who delivered it has been up to the house and looked through the windows and has written that he would like to watch us using some of the items that he spied inside the house.

This has seriously freaked out all the female residents.

Can I complain to anyone? (There is a name on the leaflet.)

You can air your dirty laundry on the Sky facebook page like everyone else ;)

On a serious note, that's bizarre. I doubt they're employed by sky, probably contracted via someone else, either way they should get disciplined for that kind of behaviour..

gehenna: Called Sky?


Not yet, I was hoping to get more info on my options first.

I was wondering if the privacy commissioner might take an interest or if there has been any offence committed that I could take to the police.

What was actually written? Can you take a phot and post it. That sounds very creepy. Perhaps the Privacy Commissioner would be interested. I am personally sick of some of this marketing that pushes the boundaries too far, and sounds like the person doing the cold calling is paid on commission, so is desperate to get a sale. IMO it is not okay for  stranger to go looking through peoples windows.

I don't really want to go into more detail here as I would then be describing what people might see if they came a peeping.

The phone number on the brochure goes to voicemail for the person named on the leaflet so I do not really want to start a discussion there.

You don't phone the person back! You call Sky directly on their hotline!

If, the note refers to things easily seen from a door/area people would normally come to, then call sky. It's just VERY unprofessional.

If they clearly had to make some effort to see any of the things referred to, call the police. It's bad, and possibly dangerous.

And what was their reason for being able to do nothing? I can't imagine Sky would say something like that, but if they still don't do anything, I would try the Privacy Commissioner next.
