Cold Callers will often use ANY details they find on the internet to collate possible customers to call and try and sell their products to.

electriciansforums.net do NOT give out your details to anybody - ever!

If you're getting unwanted cold callers ringing your phone all day long then register your telephone number with TPS Registration (you can also register your fax number if you have one to stop junk fax's, and also your home / business address if you get junk mail).

After you register it may take a couple of weeks for your details to be filtered out of 'the system' but it will stop MOST unwanted calls. Any other calls you get after that you simply respond quickly with "do you know I'm registered with TPS?" and they quickly get off the phone as their company can face a heavy fine.

PLEASE PLEASE register your details with these services and stop unwanted spam, junk and calls!

And it goes without saying - if they're calling you selling it - you can probably get it cheaper if you shop yourself anyway so NEVER give them ANY business!

And whilst I'm on the subject - our FindTrustedTradesmen.co.uk website is free to use and register on. I've had reports from a few tradesmen that have had phone calls from companies posing as insert-very-similar-company-name-here trying to get a sum of cash from the said traders promising them ALL the business in their area as an exclusive trader in that area.

It's all a load of **** - don't ever pay for anything like that - even yellow pages and yell can often be a BIG waste of cash - get all the free listings under the sun but choose carefully where you actually pay for advertising!
