How many times have you settled down for the evening only to be disturbed by the ringing of your telephone? How many times have you answered the phone only to be unable to get a word in edgeways as there is a sales representative informing you of the reasons why you should purchase their wonderful kitchen or conservatory? We are all aware that companies sell our telephone numbers, even if we are listed as ex-directory. Each time we buy items, such as white goods, cars and televisions etc, we are asked for our telephone number. In doing so, that number could end up in the hands of a representative who will make unsolicited marketing calls to our ... Read the complete review

TPS - Does it really work...yes it does!! I first came accross this service when I worked at a call centre and this was advertised as part of the service, especially for those who had many calls which they simply did not want to recieve. This service makes it illegal for these companies to contact you. How do I sign up for this service? You will need to visit the website http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/ and register. Once you go onto the website you will see plenty of things to do on there and information regarding complaints etc. Does this service cost? No, this service is absolutley free. How does it ...

Telesales calls. Everybody hates them. There's nothing worse than lying in the bath getting ready for a nice relaxing soak in your favourite smelly bubbles, hearing the phone, diving downstairs in a damp towel, only to find that the call wasn't the emergency you supposed it to be, but a really pointless one from a call centre up the other end of the country. They try to sell you windows. You already have windows, otherwise your house would be a very inhospitable place to live. You tell them this. They hang up on you midsentence. All is well until the very next day, when they work their way down the list to your name once again, and the whole process is repeated. . Read the complete review

I registered our details with tpsonline.org.uk a few months back. We'd been getting no end of calls from a company trying to sell us a fitted kitchen (no thanks we've already got one didn't seem to exist in their vocabulary) and a double glazing firm or two also seemed to target us repeatedly. We were getting about 6 calls every day from the same people and no matter how irritated I got they still called back. One of my friends gave me the details for TPS and I went online to look. At first I was a bit wary that this was a scam and they'd use my details to make the situation worse (suspicious aren't I?) but I filled in our details in the hope this wouldn't ...

You've just got back from work, struggling with the key in the front door, the phone is ringing, you just make it through the door to the phone only to hear 'Good evening madam, how are you today?'. The stranger on the end of the line is one of those cold calling telemarketing people trying to be your 'friend'. Sounds familiar? A few weeks ago I'd reached the end of my limit with callers trying to sell me anything from credit cards to windows. I had the day off and I realised by checking the caller display just how many times the phone was ringing and showing 'number withheld' because of course these are calls from call centres who do not display their ...
