op, to stop this get a new number (ex directory) and stop giving your number out unless totally necessary.

Register with these guys...............tpsonline.org.uk/tps/

We used to get loads of telemarketing calls. Haven't had one since we registered with TPS.

i used to pop my little one on to tell them about his day at school, he is only 5!!! now my missus answers it and tells them im on the loo and by the sound of it may be some time yet, they soon hang up!!!

thanks for this mate but i don't think those calling me are for the purpose of telesales or marketing , they are all Scammers.

put thw phone next to the radio and just play music

I Have 1 of those attack alarms for work i just pull the pin and leave it for a few secs then put phone down usually dont ring bk :oops:

I highly recommend you listen to this call!

No matter how many times I hear it, its still makes me roar with laughter!

I doubt that they'd be calling you back if you employed these tactics :giggle:

Threaten to get the police involved.

one mention of the TPS and they wont ring you again.

if they do, report them to the tps and your telcom company.

You can also use this service to register your mobile number.

They also have MPS, which is a mailing preference service so you can opt out of any mailshots.

thanks for all the above responses guys, will definitely have a look at this tpsonline site and will also consider call barring if that site didn't work.
