    Fed up of telephone sales

    I keep having the same company ring me with a stupid recorded message telling me at the end to press 5 if im intrested , ive had it day after day , i press 5 and speak to someone they agree to take my number of then it happens the next day.

    Then someone put the phone down on me .

    Are there any laws to prevent them ....can i take legal action for harrasment as i want to teach this company a lesson as im sick of it now.

    Its been happening for months , i usually just put the phone down , but you dont know how annoying it is when your in the shower/bath and you rush to pick up the phone to find its them

    Or eating my dinner and they ring , grrrrr

    Edit :Ah see the website also deals with complaints so ill fill that in also just to make sure

    We are on that, yet we still get the recorded messages every once in a while, I think it's a company not playing ball with regulations :x

    i work for market research and registering with the tps or being ex-directory doesnt stop us from phoning people because its not sales, just mark research, so maybe the calls you are getting are for research only. Mind you it does p*** people off though!:thumbsup:

    Nah munz, it's debt consolidation calls If I were to consolidate my debt.. I'd go to my bank... (of course I only have my student loan so not really possible to consolidate lol)
