08702 402491
I've been getting a lot of phone calls from this organization, despite being registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).

First they were automated calls, in violation of section 19 of The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.

Despite complaining to the TPS a couple of weeks ago, I have now received a live call from an operator.

There is also discussion in the newsgroup uk.telecom of such calls dating back to July. Googling the web and groups for the phone number 08702402491 (without any spaces) seems to be the most productive search.

I would strongly advise against doing business with any organisation that flagrently disregards the law and the rights and privacy of individuals.

I'm not the only one fed up with this, either.

I presume that their domain is, in which case this extract from their whois record might be of interest. The two post codes are for locations only a few hundred metres apart.
