Have your say

There are a number of ways in which companies can obtain your details for cold-calling.

It used to be that you just had to go ex-directory if you didn’t want telemarketers to call you, however, the days of telemarketers using a copy of the phone book as their calling list are long gone – they have new methods.

If you are signed up to the free Telephone Preference Service you shouldn’t receive cold calls – generally the only people who should call are those who you already have a business relationship with – but if you tick a box allowing companies to call you then they can ignore your Telephone Preference registration.
