Here in the US We have unlisted phone numbers, does that exist in the UK Annie?

Or am I just whistling Dixie...

We have what are called "ex-directory" numbers here, Vic - which I think must be similar to your unlisted ones, but just in case they're not *begin whistling Dixie too* ;)

We also have a "Do not call list" too, some businesses are trying to find ways around that. Yep My number is on that too, My number started as a landline, later, I'm getting sleepy.

Ah well, if they send you an invoice, you'd better dispute it in the correct way, or you will wind up at Kronofogden. You just can't refuse to pay, you have to do it the right way.
https://polisen.se/Utsatt-for-brott/Olika-typer-av-brott/Bedrageri/Fakturabedrageri/Bestrida-en-faktura/
But by all means Janne, be an old Grumpy Swede, and don't try to find out why they send you that rag :-).
Be aware though, that it in the future may cost you lots of work, if this is a scam that you should have disputed correctly immediately.
If you continue to receive that rag, without doing anything to make it stop, you may in the end be liable to pay, even though you haven't subscibed. You didn't follow the correct way to dispute the whole thing.
This is exactly how such scams work. They just hope that the person in question will not dispute it, and by the looks of things Janne, you're about to do exactly what they want, if this is a subscription scam.

I don't think it's a scam.
And I will not get any invoices.
And Kronofogden. I have always better relations with him than my bank:)
And putting things not ordered by the customer in a mailbox and then request payment for it is illegal in Sweden.

It's also illegal to use money placed in your account by mistake. Despite that, people do think that they can use such money.
But have it your way Janne. You've been warned anyhow.
Some people are too stubborn to take good advice. Geeze.... :-)

With that, I'll drop this, with a loud *sigh*

Yes.
I'm warned.
I really appreciate your concern:)
But I know how to handle this situation.

All: there are companies that exist for the sole purpose of aggregating data into dossiers on people. They scrape everything they can find and save it for later. So that birth announcement, it is in a database. That wedding announcement. That court order of divorce. Your bank records. Property ownership. Voter registration. There are hundreds of places they can and do obtain information. When you apply for a job, these data aggregators get a request for a background report, and bingo, they make money, oh and they save the request too because you might get hired. When you open a credit account, bingo they make money. They know more about you than you do yourself!

This what you are saying is very true.
Especially now when computers are involved.
I'm always nervous to do money transactions on the web...
For many reasons!

I've been shopping online for the better part of a decade, I've suffered zero problems, of course I've had more problems with local banks revealing account numbers in their customer receipts, which I think I got Chase to stop doing, since I made the suggestion to a branch manager, and not long after that, the bank changed the display of account numbers, but then I was in Security, so they took Me seriously I think.

In one area of LA County My family is known for Historical reasons, since My family owned an Auto Repair business, that became a car dealership that interacted with some clients from the Movie Studios, like nearby MGM Studios, My grandpa worked there once as a carpenter for a bit, when I don't know, He was also a Police Chief, since He had the contract to maintain and house the Culver City CA Police and Fire Department vehicles, an uncle that I never met was a Fire Chief, later grandpa was also a City Councilman too.

The business is long gone, a hotel and parking lot occupies that land now at Irving Place and Washington Blvd, His original 1920 house and garage still exist of course, back then in 1920 Culver City looked a bit like Yermo, just not as hot in the summer.

Culver City back then had concrete curbs and sidewalks, with dirt streets covered with some oil. The Auto Repair Garage also sold gasoline at a curbside gasoline pump, and yes there are pics online, two in fact, but then I put them there. One shows My paternal grandma and one shows My dad when He was a kid.

Man who robbed bank to escape wife gets home-confinement sentence

A Kansas man who robbed a bank last September and told police that he was hoping to get caught so he would get prison time to escape his wife, was sentenced Tuesday to six months of home confinement after pleading guilty, The Kansas City Star reported.

Lawrence John Ripple took the guilty plea in January. He told the judge on Tuesday that he had heart surgery that left him depressed when he committed the bank robbery, the paper reported.

.... Officers arrived quickly. An FBI agent wrote in the affidavit that Ripple had earlier been arguing with his wife. He told investigators he wrote the note in front of his wife, telling her he would “rather be in jail than at home.”

That's one for the Books, jail time at home for robbing a bank, ok. Weird.

I have a cousin that had no home or food. He robbed a bank for $50, then went outside and sat on a bench waiting for the police. In jail he had food and shelter.

@Steve: that is so sad :( I hope things have improved for your cousin

I'm lucky, I have a roof over My head, a car to take Me to where I need to go to, the mobile home and car are thanks to My late aunt, and a cat for company who I love very much. Everything else, well that has been up to some friends and Me.

Pigs will eat humans, both are omnivores, so it's possible Carlos.

As to that really having happened, that I don't know.

You would think a State Supreme Court Judge WOULD KNOW BETTER and KNOW WHAT "phising, scam, etc" email(s) are.........

(New York) State Supreme Court judge loses over $1M in real estate email scam
A state Supreme Court judge was scammed out of more than $1 million after being fooled by an email she thought had been sent by her real estate lawyer, the Daily News has learned.

Acting State Supreme Court Justice Lori Sattler, 51, was duped while trying to sell her apartment and buy another, sources said.

On Friday, Sattler told police she’d gotten an email June 7 from someone she believed was her lawyer, sources said.

The person claiming to be the lawyer told her to send money to an account. She followed the instructions and wired $1,057,500 to that account, sources said. The money was then sent to Commerce Bank of China, sources said.

Some people are just gullible, they think nothing of something like this, heck identity theft isn't on some peoples radar, a relative of Mine is like that, She didn't think Her info was worth stealing, wrong, once they have enough info, someone can open a loan in Her name, then She'd get the bill, the thief would vanish with the money, and do this again, and again.
