TPS is a Government Organisation set up to avoid just this kind of thing. Register and it should never happen again.

You can stop cold call telephone sales people ringing at all times during the day and evening, along with most junk mail, by registering at the tps website, part of the Direct Mail organisation.

I did this about three years ago and very shortly afterwards cold calls diminished to virtually zero.

I have TPS enabled on my standard phone and it has cut all the selling calls to practically nil.

If one does get through I just mention TPS and ask for their name and they apologise and hang up very quickly!
