To feel smug about grassing up a cold caller to the TPS?

I have been with TPS for a few years for both my landline and mobile and it's worked. I just received a call on my mobile from a PPI company. Their telephone number was not hidden and I asked the girl for the company name and where did she get my number from. She quite politely and honestly said they get the number from a company they buy information from. I proceeded to tell her the information was incorrect as I have never had PPI on any loans or credit cards and then told her I was with TPS and to remove my details.

With the information I had, I've reported them and it feels good.

I've reported a few companies for failing to check TPS. Most companies I don't manage to get the names of, but I can do a search on phone numbers to find out if needed. Some will give fake names in hope that they get away with it and not get reported. YNBU grin

It is an offence so you report it.
