I feel a right idiot and so naive but thought I would ask advice on here and maybe warn others. Was phoned today at tea time(good timing when people are busy and off-guard) A company doing survey on behalf of electrical company. Which make of TV have I got ?- (choose from a list.) When was it bought? (give a time slot(last 6 months/ 1 year ago etc.) I blithely gave the info in a hurry to get off the phone. They knew my address and obviously my phone number and name. As soon as I got off the phone I realised they were probably some gang who were trying to find potential places to break into to steal stuff- or is this me being too dramatic and suspicious?) I immediately phoned 1471 to see if there was a number and surprisingly there was but unsurprisingly the number was unobtainable! I feel such a fool as usually I am quite careful and I feel sick that my house might well be targeted. Tomorrow I was going to inform the police but don't know if they will be able to do anything. Also was thinking of contacting a locksmith to put deadlocks on front and back door(expensive) but we have patio windows that could be smashed. a) Am I being paranoid? b) what else could I do? I know i should have just put phone down straight away - what an idiot - I really am kicking myself and beating myself up. I just feel sick at the thought of people doing this sort of stuff.
