In the first instance, report this to the TPS, with as much detail as you can give them, especially names and (obviously) numbers.

Secondly, report to BT (if that's who you're with). They have procedures in place to deal with nuisance calls of this nature. See click here

TPS doesn't apply to calls from abroad, I'm afraid.

As an aide, I've just had an incoming 'international' call; automatic spiel when call answered - "do you want to go to the USA on holiday? Just press '9' for more info..."

As I'm sure most of us would do, I simply hung up.

Caller ID was a few letters & numbers, as seen regularly on calls from the sub-continent, so can't say who it actually was. Pity...
