jpoc: The sky staff on tonight say that they can do nothing.


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.


Well thats very friendly.. Did they not atleast offer to speak about it tomorrow? Very poor service.

heavenlywild: Just call Sky already because we all want to know what they say!


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.

If phone number did not go to Sky, call the police.

You should call the police. You have the person's name, phone number and hand writing.

Damn Sky. Poor service at best.

That's Very poor of Sky! I agree, call the police and report it at minimum.

This. There won't be any senior staff on at this time of night, try again after 0900 tomorrow. Call the Police, ask for CRL (Crime Reporting Line) and log it. Unlikely anyone would be assigned to speak with you tonight though but atleast its in the system.

Perhaps not actually a sky salesman and is just using sky stuff to have a sense of legitimacy if he's caught spying? How stupid can you be to leave a business card with your personal contact numbers on it...

I'd take this to the police and skip Sky personally.

Because you leave a fake name and a free sim on prepay cell number?

And does the handwriting match anything obviously handwritten by the Sky salesman?
