Don't Call Me...
I'm fed up with getting unsolicited phone calls in the evening trying to sell me double-glazing or a new kitchen. I'm also fed up with getting SMS texts to my mobile telling me I've won a holiday or some such nonsense. So it was with some glee I read in the Guardian today about the Telephone Preference Service. It was set up by the Direct Marketing Association (UK) Limited (DMA) in 1995 as a voluntary self-regulatory mechanism to enable consumers to opt-out of receiving unsolicited sales and marketing calls. Let's see if it works, huh?
