The number that came up on the 'phone was 08450 044237.
We had the call around 7:30pm today and my wife answered. The line was a bit poor - very crackly. The caller was phishing for any information he could get but wanted to provide nothing. Needless to say the call was cut off very quickly.
I Googled the number and found many hits on it (08450044237) the link is was quite typical.
My suggestion is that if you see this number on your handset/'phone cut the call as soon as possible.
I have been registered with TPS for over 3 years and still get calls. When I complain all they say is that I will have to listen to the whole call, get the caller's number / company name and then report that specific call to TPS.
The reason for registering with TPS was to STOP those calls, NOT do TPS' job for them. If I was paying for that "service" I would be demanding my money back!
From the TPS confirmation letter:
"Your TPS registration will not stop calls from companies involved in market research and other activities not related to selling. To stop these calls, you will have to advise each company individually when they contact you that you do not wish to be contacted by them by telephone in future."
I think that the TPS list applies only to members of the Direct Marketing Association, but I'm open to correction on that point.
