    How do others stop companies using database on directories to cold call the clients ?
    Have some running 8 – 10 years have had similar problems before but the last 3-4 months calls have rocketed mostly from companies based outside the UK.

    Current methods at present ban certain IP’s also seed with numbers i.e. new registered mobile (Thanks to all the free sim offers have a nice supply of them?) Remote call forwarded numbers, legal letters etc, Limited success in the UK but not for outside?
    Did think about log on type thing but as it would not stop them joining and the detrimental effect it would have on the information not being straight there so to speak decided against, Toyed with "cookie" things like zoombie, evercookies etc but not sure if offenders would clear these and a grayish area so could be a waste of time, Any others have this problem or think of solution or ideas welcome.
