Call Prevention Service is for UK consumers, businesses and organizations. We help to prevent unwanted nuisance phone calls. We work closely with data controllers who manage outbound call lists. These lists are used to make sales calls from 100's of companies who use this available data. We help you to remove your details from these unwanted lists when you register with us as a company, we ensure your details are added to the suppression file which prevents your number from being dialed. Most sales calls are 'robot' calls which means the phone numbers being called are fed into software which auto dials numbers in sequence. This is why you may receive more than one unwanted phone call in the space of a few seconds - your number may be duplicated on these lists.
We pursue the organizations who hold your details. When you receive an unwanted sales call, the company who are calling would have sourced your details from a company you've dealt with previously or if you have completed an online form and clicked the 'I wish to receive offers from 3rd parties' button! Your details are then made widely available within a short space of time. We go straight to the source of this data - the list brokers and data marketers who use your details. Whether or not they have you on their 'opt in' lists or not, you have every right to have your details removed upon request. This is what we do for you.
lTelephone Preference Service As you maybe aware there is a free service available to help you reduce the amount of Nuisance calls you receive to your home, the main provider of this service is the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).
The Telephone Preference Service help you reduce the amount of unsolicited calls of a sales/marketing nature generated by UK based call centers.
Unfortunately the TPS cannot help you reduce any calls generated from Abroad/Silent Calls/Recorded Calls or PPI Sales Calls. The reason for this is the companies making these calls are very hard to trace and “Rogue” companies operate who simply do not want to be found.
Over the past few years there has been a large increase in these types of calls in the UK especially from PPi Sales companies and Personal Injury claim call
