I am on the TPS listing and do not receive unsolicited calls from UK numbers.

However, TPS does not restrict calls from international numbers. I have caller display so can decide if I want to answer any 00 calls. Those pester calls usually from India I put a block on using call blocking.

Just recently I have had a couple of calls from a number that I have tracked to Saudi Arabia. I have not answered or blocked the number.....yet, but will next time. The code is 00966

Is anyone else aware of nuisance calls from SA, is it possible that there are now call centres in that country? I have no reason to answer because I have no correspondence with anyone in SA. They do not leave an anserphone message.

That is odd. I definitely wouldn't answer it. My guess would be it is somebody from Saudi Arabia trying to connect with maybe a friend and has your number by mistake but ?

Really is just odd.

Probably a spam call from a call centre based there.

Unknown numbers. Yes I answer them, so they have been charged (I hope) I do not speak and I leave them hanging. Night calls too, no problem as I am on the computer, not sleeping. :D

That is rather devilish of you Jayway! ;) BUT if they get charged a bundle am sure they'll learn to put your phone number onto a 'no call list' :P :P

I hate calls at odd hours as I immediately panic it is the daughter calling with something wrong with the kids. It never has been but I definitely do not like those off hours calls.

Doing some petitions on here, I heard my phone ring and unthinking .. answered it. It was a very nice man who asked me about my Berkley (idiot) account and my credit card. After I told him how to pronounce Barclay I was laughing so much I nearly had a Tena moment - and he hung up on me ! :a8: :a8: :a8:
