Strange phone call?

At home today "sick" preparing for a hospital test.
Just answered the phone and the caller rang off. The number was retained, 01933356066. I Googled it and it came up as MCE Insurance. My bike insurance is with them and is due soon. There were several complaints on the web of this happening to several other people.
Why would an Insurance Company do this, p*ss people off by calling them and then hanging up?
This happened to anyone else on here?

It's automated dialling in the call centres. The system decides who to call next then makes the call. Then it passes it over to an oik to annoy you. If the said oik logs out for a fag break before taking the call then it just hangs up.

Good luck with the tests Col, I had an Endoscapy a few weeks ago, opted for the throat spray and the sedative, deffo the best choice, fortunatly it was negative although they did find that I had lesions and Helicobacter Pylori So on Antibiotics & mega ant acid pills

I think the endoscapy is the better of the two, from what I have been told.

Back already. I can honesty say I suffered no discomfort at all from neither of the operations.
Only thing found is a Hiatus Hernia but I think this is pretty common these days.
