What is cold calling?

A cold call is an unsolicited telephone call by a business seeking to attract new customers. Cold calling is the equivalent of spam in the junk folder of your email. The practice of cold calling is not illegal unless you have:

  • registered your details with the Telephone Preference Service, which is the central opt-out register for individuals who do not wish to receive unsolicited sales and marketing telephone calls.
  • previously notified the caller that you no longer wish to receive cold-calls by that company.

Telephone Preference Service (TPS)

The easiest method to stop nuisance calls is to register your phone number with the Telephone Preference Service. This is an official UK body with free online registration. Your number will be part of a Do Not Call list that all companies and charities are legally bound to, and are prevented from calling you without your consent.

If you are still receiving nuisance calls or texts, the TPS website offers advice on how to deal with cold calls. If you are still unhappy, then you can simply make a complaint to the TPS. The industry watchdog OFCOM also have a detailed guide on dealing with nuisance calls and messages.
