Apparently, if the business is non-UK based, or it’s not a sales-call, the TPS is unable (unwilling?) to take any action, so seems to be totally ineffective these days at preventing unwanted calls.
Neil, like you I also get pre-recorded phone ‘offers’ on an almost daily basis. If it was a human making these calls, I think by now I’d calmly offer to burn down their business and firmly blame the caller for this extreme ‘retaliation’ !! (…and probably turn myself in to the police.)
Maybe someone here could suggest a solution to go with DoctorGeoff’s thoughts ?
(…but please don’t recommend a call-blocker, as these nuisance callers often ‘spoof’ their telephone numbers …so as soon as you block one, they’re able to use a new one.)
What a shame that the telephone companies themselves don’t prevent these calls. I can only wonder how much guarateed income these calls generate for the telecoms companies themselves and assume that’s why they seem to be allowed ??
Scr*w people …let’s make money!!!
Dom (…somewhat miffed !!)
