I have been with the TPA for many years and the level of unsolicited calls had dropped to almost Zero which pleased me no end.
Then I signed up some months ago for BT and their Indian sub continent help lines. Needless to say the service didn't happen through total chaos on their side and months later I still have have all the BT equipment stored in my house with no signs of it ever being picked up.
However since signing with them I am now receiving daily calls from the same said sub continent telling me I have computer viruses to god knows what else. Is there any comnnection I ask myself? Seems the TPA can do nothing about these calls as they don't originate from the UK shores..
I have been with TPS for years with no apparent effect.
When I received nuisance calls and told the callers I was with TPS most of them said "Oh, we're not members of that."
Formal complaints to TPS seemed to have no effect either, and one company, which was calling two or three evenings a month, told me, when I complained, that if I didn't like it I should go ex-directory.
In the end I installed trueCall, with 100% success over the last two years or so.
The TPS is gaining a reputation as a toothless, paper tiger.
I have been a TPS member for about 20 years but still get nuisance calls. When checking the numbers on the "Who calls me on . . . " website there are dozens, if not hundreds, of complaints about the TPS being ineffective.
I now have a message on my answerphone saying calls from outside the UK and calls where the caller's number is withheld will not be answered (no good if you have friends or relatives abroad though).
