    Nuisance phone calls - any advise on how to get them stopped ?

    Chaps

    Ive been round at my folks this morning and they've had 9 nuisance calls from India this morning. I've answered 8 of them and told them to #### off....

    Its getting really ridiculous, they generally get around 10 calls a day! Anyone got any advice on how to stop this? Apart from them possibly missing a call from the doctor or something else important it's bloody annoying...

    Any advise greatly appreciated...

    Had the same, bought a bt truecall phone for xmas, havn't had one since. If the phone doesnt recognise the number it plays a recorded message asking for their name then puts them on hold while it rings you and asks if you want to accept the call.

    Ask them to hold for a moment while you get the houseowner, then put the phone next to the radio.
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    I had a troop of monkeys keeps calling me day and night from Pakistan trying to Tell me that I had F****** my PPI !!! even as I told them time and again I have not or ever had the bloody thing ?? it drove me off my rocker !So what I did to help this chap out was this ,I use my air horn of the boat and I said could he get as close to the ear set as my voice was not that good and let the F**ker have it every time I got the call from a 0845 or any other number that I was or didt know ??? I just would hold it on the phone and blast the Ba***** with it and after a few days it stopped I still keep it handy as I find they just don't wish to talk to me or the wife anymore now use id blocker no id it rejects the call but cost me each £12 a year ?

    Cheap answering machine and learn to never answer the phone. If it is important, they will leave a message. If it is a spambot, they will eventually clear their lists of your number if they never get a person.

    Done that three times now and it's a waste of time. It's got to the point that I don't answer the landline, if someone wants to phone me they use the mobile.
    I have even resorted to unplugging the telephone handset on occasion. If it wasn't for needing a landline connection for the computer We simply wouldn't bother with fixed line telephones.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
