Don’t get ripped off by telephone scam

Imminent changes in the law regarding the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 could lead to businesses being exploited warn legal experts.

The Telephone Protection Service (TPS) was established to allow individuals to “opt out” from appearing on telemarketing lists and in May a change in the law will enable businesses to be able to register to combat unsolicited calls.

A company has been targeting consumers called The Telephone Protection Agency and charging them for its service which claims to be able to remove them from marketing lists. Business can in fact already register with the official Telephone Preference Service and what’s more – it’s FREE.

Further information on the TPS and registration details can be found on its website or by calling 0845 070 0707.
