    I've been doing this for years.

    It doesn't work - you still get the junk. Does make you feel better though.

    I do this all the time aswell so i don't have to tear up every application they send through so instead i pop it all back into the envelope and post it back to them for them to dispose of it. The most i ever got from one company in one month was 3 credit card applications from barclay card!

    On my life, I followed that link, and then followed a link from there to the TPS which is the telephone preference service and I registered my home phone and my mobile phone, and within 2 hours I'd been contacted by carphone to offer me a deal on a new mobile - coincidence????

    it takes a while to get registered but if you recieve a call after a week or so, just say "telephone preference service" and they'll soon hang up.

    The only junk mail i get is always addressed to my ex.

    I think women must just sign up to anything.

    The TPS only stops 'authorised' companies from calling you.
    Not the rogues.

    I threatened to contact the TPS when cold called once (after having registered) and the caller told me that they weren't registered and so the TPS opt-out didn't apply to them!

    Now I just waste their time or string them on for a while depending on my mood...
