@PP

If you haven't done so already, I would recommend signing up for the TPS online. It will cut cold callers by 99% within 3 months. The remaining 1% you can have fun with by threatening to report them as you are registered with the TPS. Twisted Evil

Does the UK have something like the National Do Not Call list, as the US has? Is that what the TPS is?

won't stop the local minicab firms Chinese/Indian/Mexican takeaways removal firms pizza places etc etc sticking 348300 leaflets through my door ... Mad Why not say, 'I don't have a mortgage,' which might get them to leave you alone? I remember that double-glazing firms were always put off when I answered my parents' phone and said (truthfully!) 'Sorry, I don't own the house.'

I get the occasional phone call but itís usually form a company I have used in the past. A bit more lately but I think that is because interest rates have gone down and many refinance when this happens. They keep calling until I tell them I donít want to refinance and if I did I would have contacted them not waited for a phone call. I then politely thank them for calling and tell them any future calls wonít be necessary.

I get a lot of offers in the mail too. They all say I am per approved for $399,000.00. That is just about what I owe on my house so they must know something.

Also,I or my wife I should say, gets a lot (about 20 a month) of catalogues even from companies she has never used (so she says Confused ). I donít mind the Victoria Secrets one (honestly this is something I actually encourage her to buy from) but some of them are just stupid. Who would buy Donald Trump steaks through the mail or at all? This is something I wish I could stop because if I forget to check the mail for a few days it gets so full the mail carrier puts a note telling me my mail will be kept until there is room in my mail box.

if it is about your mortgage,be careful in giving out any information by telephone. it could be an attempt at identity theft. In South Florida, there was also a scam such that with the info you give about mortgage they were able to file a claim against the property . so be careful

I told my cold calling re-mortgage phone lad that I had fifty left outstanding. His eyes must have lit up. His reply "50,000?" No "fifty 5-0 pounds". Puzzled reply "fifty thousand? "No fifty pounds." <stifles giggles> The lad hung up. B*stard!

Anything relating to mortgages, new kitchens, replacement windows, roof repairs, driveway upgrades, garden services, etc etc just say "Sorry, I'm a tenant. Would you like the landlord's phone number?" and they will hang up before you do.

I keep getting Indian Women 'phoning me up because my name has been passed onto them by some debt collection outfit. They want to discuss my unsecured loans. Only I don't have any unsecured loans, except maybe my VISA card and they're quite happy with me. As soon as I try to question a wee bit further about who gave them my details the what was reasonable English very suddenly becomes not so good because they are off-script and then just tend to start repeating the first paragraph.

All they're doing is trawling through electoral roles, assuming most folk over 18 have some kind of un-secured loan, and trying to frighten you with the "Debt Recovery" bit hoping you'll transfer the debt to them. So basically they're just trying to trick you into a Carol Vordermanesqe "Debt Consolidation"
