I've signed up but still getting calls twice a day from the same people sometimes. Selling insurance or offering to sue Manchester city council for giving me a parking ticket (only ever had one in Bournemouth). At the end of the call it asks me to press 5 to speak to an advisor or 9 to be removed from their list (I've pressed this on 3 separate occasions now. Does it just tell them that the number is active so they pass it on and keep calling? Tempted to press 5 and get their contact details to forward to the IOC but worried I'll get charged for the call like on a mobile.

Anyone got experience in doing this?

I still get calls too. Just had sales call from hubby's new employer so thought I'd better not ask for their details to report them but have done with other companys in the past.

Not all company's are signed up to it. And any none UK company's couldn't give a hoot about it...

Takes about a month for calls to stop, after that tell any that call that you are registered with the TPS and they are breaking the law by calling you - should stop after that

Bear in mind TPS doesnt cover calls made outside of uk so that might be why you are getting them,

Are you in the phone book?

It's not very good as surveys charities claim immunity and other research bodies as well as call centre's around the world. i had one telling me I had won a trip of a lifetime all expenses paid holiday. I just had to tell them my favourite place in the world that I wanted to go. So I said Newcastle.

I keep getting calls saying i've won a holiday to Florida. Unfortunatelt i do the 1471 and no number is listed so not sure how to get this call barred.

Getting a pain now as getting 2 or 2 calls a day sometimes

I'm getting a lot at the moment too - from international or out of area numbers - they tend to call at the same time as well, around 6.30pm.

I'm signed up with TPS as well.

Just hang up on them right away.

Thats the one. They ask you to press 9 to continue. never done it yet. tempted to see what happens but may link to a high rate number and get screwed for a big bill
