What if... I want to stop cold callers

Are cold-callers getting you hot under the collar? Here's what you need to do to stop them hassling you...

Sick of cold callers hassling you? Here’s what you need to do…

When applying for anything, always opt out of receiving marketing calls.

If you’re already getting cold calls, get in touch with the companies in question and get yourself off their call lists.

Ask your phone operator about barring calls from certain numbers, overseas or withheld callers.

You could also register with the Telephone Preference Service to stop any unsolicited sales and marketing calls.

Or you can simply screen your calls – if you don’t recognise a number or it’s been withheld, just ignore it.

Be sure to check your voicemail though, just in case it was a call you should have taken.
