Nuisance phone calls

This petition had 29 supporters

I run a small business so I need to advertise my phone number but I am being bombarded with nuisance calls.

Even though I have Telephone Preference Service and Call Baring for International calls and Caller ID I am still being called buy telesales and automated calls.

The numbers that are used are either withheld or change rapidly so that it is impossible to block them.

It would not be practical for me to go ex-directory or to bar all number withheld calls as it would prevent my customer from being able to contact me.

Let's get Offcom and the Telephone Preference Service to CLOSE DOWN or CHARGE the NUISANCE CALL CENTRES who act irresponsibly as well as companies who use Withheld-Numbers and Variable-Number-Calling.

If they don't have the power to do anything it may need a change in the law.
