    a woman with a slight accent phoned and was asking me about information sources, and I didn't want to be rude and just hang up on her. At the end of the brief interview (she asked about local newspapers etc) she asked for my post code, I was taken aback but out of habit i said it and then my she asked my name and I did the same. I could have kicked myself, usually I just hang up and be rude.

    I'm kinda worried, she knows my address and name...is there any well danger in this? Anyone heard anything bad happening from this?

    So the only information you gave them was your name and postcode? I doubt there's much they could do with that, other than send you annoying spam snail mail.

    They could've acquired your name and address just using your phone number. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Did you give her your house number (door)? If you didn't then she only knows the street that you live on, that's all

    Thanks a lot for your comments, I feel better. I worry a lot, and my paranoia levels are particularly high.

    In future i'll just say I'd rather not say, she seemed nice so I was totally off guard
