    You need to register with the TPS

    Telephone Preference Scheme

    You are signing yourself up for a database which basically says 'i withdraw my consent for companies to call me unless I have given them consent'.

    Call centres are meant to cross-reference their database with the TPS databse. So if your name shows up on the TPS they aren't meant to ring you.

    UNLESS they have your consent to call.

    SO next time Cap1 call you, say 'I am registered with the TPS and I withdraw my consent for you to call me again - please remove me from your database - if you call again I will report you to the relevant authorities - this is a formal final warning - so do NOT call me again' those are the magic words.

    They should never call you again if they do it will be illegal.

    Report them to the TPS. And they will come down on them like a ton of bricks.

    I ask them to remove me from their calling list. I also signed up for the national Do Not Call list. I definitely get fewer calls now.

    You can go to and register your phone. After you are on the registry, they can not call. If they do, you can file suit and collect damages.

    my husband will entertain them as though he is interested then he asks them to hold on and never returns to the phone or pretends to fall asleep and will "snore" into the phone.
