If like me you have had enough of cold callers/telemarketers etc phoning you at home during the day, when you are sitting down for your evening meal, when you are relaxing at the weekend etc etc then i have the solution :)
There is a website called which stands for "the Telephone Preference Service" and it provides a FREE addition to their register.

I quote direct from their site

The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) helps you to make sure your telephone number is no longer available to organisations who may telephone you with offers and information you do not wish to receive.

Under Government legislation introduced on 1 May 1999 It is unlawful to make unsolicited direct marketing calls to individuals who have indicated that they do not want to receive such calls.

You can either do this by contacting companies directly and asking them not to phone you or you can register with a central service (The Telephone Preference Service) to stop all such calls.

The term individual includes consumers at their residential address, sole traders and, except in Scotland, partnerships.

It is free to register with the service.
Sounds good :)

A follow up to this thread. is the mail equivalent to you telephone URL above.

I know that a lot of the rubbish we get comes in magazines etc. but if it can stop at least some of the other like regular requests to take out another credit card I will be pleased.
