You can help take control of your telephone by registering your number with the telephone preference service – this is free. If you have a fax machine you can also register with the fax preference service
Welcome to Oh! Fudge (my) TELephone
I have decided to start this website because I am sick to death of cold sales callers. Despite being registered with the telephone preference service, I have discovered that a debt collection agency has been calling me around 4 times a day for 6 months and once I finally tell them they have the wrong number, I hang up and get a call from IPSOS MORI with a very difficult to hear guy with a Scottish accent … Arrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
What made matters even worse is that I was woken up this morning by a damn text message which had the wrong first name about getting some sort of damn loan, followed by another. Whenever I’ve signed up for something you get a PIN to verify it is you that has signed up, so WTF did I get texts for someone else? and I had to pay to send the STOP command to them?
I should stress that debt collection agencies are allowed to call you as well as surveys. However, if you have bought a call blocking solution, as I did, you need to know the telephone numbers to enter them to block them. I plan making freedom of information requests and list the numbers, I and perhaps you should be blocking if you just can’t stop a company from calling you.
