    You're lucky! We still get them from abroad, and I've reported several UK companies for ignoring the Telephone Preference Service - I've had callers insisting that numbers only stay on there for 3 months (rubbish!) and even, "Yes we're aware of that"! when I tell them we're on TPS

    the only calls we are getting at the moment are from people claiming to be firms that can stop nuisance calls on your phone. I listen patiently to their intro and as soon as they ask if I am fed up with the nuisance calls I tell them that they are the only ones calling, that no one ever calls me, then I cry. They hang up.

    There is no practical way of stopping them from getting through, it seems, so abrupt rudeness is my response. They deserve no less.
