For the past 2 years, I have been receiving fax calls down my phone line at STUPID times of the night, 1, 2, 3am the phone rings, and you think the worse dont you, a relative in hospital etc etc, I am registered and have been with for some time with TPS, FPS etc etc.

BT, dont want to know, its NOTHING to do with them, TPS dont want to know about receiving calls down phone lines from fax machines..

What on earth can I do, I do know the number is in lancashire somewhere, PART of the number is here below, maybe someone can narrow to a town for me

01772 203 ***

How can I find out who it belongs to, I dont have a fax machine to send one back saying STOP IT!!, any help from a man rocking backward and forward in a corner would be appreciated

Is this one of those vending machines 'phoning home ' - to the wrong number? A uk google on the digits shows 2 hotels in Preston as a match - see under 'more results' Lovatt & Ashwood hotels in the list http://www.192.com/directory.cfm/PRESTON/HOTEL . Also are you sure it's a fax & not a modem? And how did you get just part of the number?

I recommend two shocks at 200J then one at 360J.
But please do not expect your router to sync afterwards.

Come on they are abusing you, publish the full number.
If it’s a fax or PC the chance it’s a business not a domestic line anyway.
