    Serious thread, thing is annoying me.

    Had this phone number since about the start of December, the first 2-3 weeks got constant phone calls about "the club" or from companies asking for the business holder or such till I got a letter from TPS(telephone preferencial system) saying I am now on the list of numbers of people who dont accept cold callers.

    The amount of calls died down but still had a few phone calls a week from people asking about "the club"

    I had my suspicions but as it wasnt all the time(Though was quite often) left it. However in the last 3 weeks have been swamped with phone calls most days as much as 20-30 times from the same number asking about wanting him and his wife to join our swingers club! I am fed up with being woken up about 9am each day by this person and them ringing back about 5 times in a row, then giving up for about an hour or two then ringing again and so have to leave my phone off till I need to use it.


    I think I will have to contact BT and change my number but dont see why I should do this and worried as BT use foreign call centres explaining it to them!

    Despite the facepalm that is a phone company that has the word British in it using Indian call centres, my experience with them is fine. If you're somewhere loud you have no chance of understanding what they're saying.
