is 02 selling my private details onto other companys ?

I have 2 contract phones with 02 one is mine and one is for the wife 2 different numbers but both in my name. The past 12 months random sales people have been ringing my wifes phone and asking to speak with me, each time she puts me on the phone its never anyone from 02 sales, this morning it was carephone warehouse and in the past its been other sales companys but never 02.

So.... how do these companies know my full name and my mobile numbers .... all i can think of is that someone at 02 is selling on my details ?

Contact O2 about it... or have a look and see if they have a forum, and others are complaining...
