We registered a few months ago after being bombarded with so call charity advertising calls to our business each demanding hundreds of pounds for advertising that we hadn't agreed to or even heard of. These calls got more and more frequent, abusive and threatening. In the end we were being chased for payment by 25 to 30 different so called charities a week. It was someone at one of these charities that told us to register with the TPS. A couple of weeks after registering they stopped calling and haven't bothered us since. Thank you TPS.
Absolutely rubbish. I registered with them to stop all the nuisance sales calls i get and i still get them. Ive rejoined them and spoken to them but no change.
Free UK Telephone Cold Call Opt Out Service
If you are in the UK contact the Telephone Preference Service, a free of charge government supported service (http://www.tpsonline.org.uk) and list your landline and mobile numbers for free. It takes up to a couple of weeks to work but is then usually very effective. All UK telephone marketing companies including charities and political parties have to adhere to the TPS database requirements or they will be heavily fined.
It might not stop calls coming in from overseas (not too sure what you can do about those), and it doesn't stop text messages to your mobile/cell phone contact your service provider direct to stop those.
Good system, works well don't get conned into paying any money for a rip-off site that just forward your details to the TPS. The TPS is FREE
