    Total nobbers the lot of them. You try and be polite and they just don't take no for an answer almost telling you, you must by lying because you haven't had an accident or loan or PPI bollocks.

    I left UK over a decade ago but kept my UK number and I get them too but I tend to play along by agreeing with everything they say
    I still have a UK number and get them every now and then, I tend to play along but turn the tables on them by asking for confirmation who they are, who are they calling, what address do they have for me etc :)
    Of course sometimes I tell them 'No thanks' :p

    I block them Si but so many damn autodiallers I've tried being nice but then they get aggressive. So I tried 'this conversation is over' but won't take no for an answer. Now I just hang up.

    Fwiw Deany has an aging relative who lives alone & is gradually succumbing to Alzheimer's. We found that he has been increasingly targeted by telephone based scam/sales companies.
    So we recently brought him a replacement landline telephone, that cleverly rejects all calls from any numbers not programmed into it. So now he can only receive calls from his friends or relatives, doctor etc...
    Seems to work well for him.

    My dad got so fed up with it all he got rid of his house phone haha!! I do agree with you Ed, it really is invasion of privacy in my opinion, I hate how they disrupt your evening and they won't take no for an answer. Really hope the complaint helps

    ^my sis works in this sh*tbag industry. She reakons they stick a 'highlighted vulnerability' onto the calling cards, which means they target you more if you either talk to them or say you're ill/bereaved etc. the ones that work from uk can be temporarily stopped with TPS (call and register) the ones based outside uk less easy to stop as they don't have to adhere to our legislation.

  10. Just play along. Say you were injured and then when they've been through the spiel ask what the ball park figure compo you'd be entitled to as you were decapitated in a motorcycle accident last year.
