Cold Calling Scams. Beware of rogue businesses telephoning to offer a service to stop nuisance phone calls. They promise to block unwanted calls for a monthly charge which may be as little as £1.20 (or may be considerably more!). They will then request your bank details. NEVER deal with cold callers. If you think you have been caught out by a scam such as this contact Citizens Advice on 0345 4040506

Telephone Preference Service To reduce the number of unwanted calls you can register with the Telephone Preference Service for free on 0845 0700707.
