Q276: I am getting a lot of nuisance sales calls, is there anything that can be done to stop it?
One of the first things to consider is for your telephone number to be ex-directory. This will stop a great deal, if not all, of the telemarketing calls.
Another way of stopping the calls is to register with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS); this is a central register that holds the details of all the people who no longer wish to be bothered with telemarketing calls. Once registered with this service the companies are not allowed to call you. There is also a Corporate Telephone Preference Service.
Telephone number for the TPS: 0845 0700707.
