Nuisance Calls

Since moving my home phone from BT to PN on Monday I have had several marketing or survey calls.
I had put a block on these but assume I will need to do this again.
I understand there are places you can register to stop these calls ant the telephone preference service is one but I seem to recall someone posted a link to another site which blocked calls the telephone preference service could not block, do you know what this link is ?

Re: Nuisance Calls

The only other site that I recall mentioned was for reporting silent calls.

There is Call Prevention Registry. It claims to block more calls than TPS but charges £39.99 pa.

Re: Nuisance Calls

Thanks for that.
The one for silent calls was the one I was looking for.
I Note there are a few who seem to offer to block calls for a fee something I would have thought the phone companies could offer at a small charge.
