    Hadn't seen it had been posted. Cold calling is when companies selling stuff like Double Glazing or mobile phones call you when you have not requested the call.

    those automated calls are made to see when the phone is picked up so they know the best time to ring back :x

    have you registered with ]Telephone Preference Service (TPS)
    its free to sign up & no hassle, i done it a few years back after being hounded by cold calls.

    as far as I know cold calling is actualy illegal....however cold calling is using a random generator to get the numbers, most companies hold your details and call you in the future....either that or somewhere along the line you have missed a tick box saying a company can sell your details on.
    Not entirely sure but I used to work for a loan broker, we had records from 3+ years ago and when we called them it was still legally classified as a 'follow-up' call, after a certain amount of time with no response from the numers they had to be put in a repression file type thing.

    lol

    I've had the same number for years....

    Sorry ...but we haven't yet been able to identify the person you're looking for
