Tackling nuisance calls?

nuisance-callsSome good news, potentially, from BT about nuisance calls. Many of my customers continue to be plagued by theses rogue callers, offering PPI claims, insurance claims and the like. http://www.computing.co.uk/…/bt-plans-new-service-to-cut-of…

Unfortunately, I think there will still be a problem with”WITHHELD” numbers; GP surgeries, hospitals, and ex-directory customers frequently withhold their numbers for privacy reasons. However, the new BT Call Protect service is surely a step in the right direction.

I had a call yesterday from a withheld number, which turned out to be a UK company, offering to “manage my Google business listing”.  How kind of them, I thought, until they told me it would be £250 + VAT for a year!! Watch out.
