Marketing companies should be banned from using autodialler systems and from using offshore call centres. I work from home and despite my telephone numbers being registered with the TPS, I sometimes receive several calls a day (usually from call centres in India) from people trying to sell consolidation loans or find out if I have been mis-sold an insurance policy.

Why is this idea important?

These "businesses" are a public nuisance, an invasion of privacy and many of them appear to be scammers that go out of their way to get around peoples' attempts to stop them calling. Many people claim they continue receiving calls despite having requested the caller remove their details from their databases.
