How and where to report Nuisance Calls
Receiving nuisance calls? Want to report them? We know exactly what you need to do, so take a look at our tips on how and where to report nuisance calls.
1.) Sign up for the Telephone Preference Service (TPS)
The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is a UK-based opt-out registry for direct marketing calls. Numbers on the registry must not be contacted by a commercial entity through the phone. Many of our customers choose to sign up for the Telephone Preference Service as an aid to lowering their nuisance calls.
The TPS aims to stop around 31% of legitimate UK business from contacting you. It cannot cannot do anything about rogue UK businesses or overseas companies making nuisance calls to your home.
We believe our customers should sign up for the Telephone Preference Service since it also provides useful statistics for the Information Commissioner's Office. These statistics allow the government to make informed decisions on nuisance calls policy and craft responses to nuisance and scam calls.
