nuisance calls 02031 291891

I keep getting calls from this number, and when I answer there is a pause and then a recorded message saying "Goodbye".

 

I am registered with TPS.

Re: Can you tell us what your question is?

Ah - my message was a bit cryptic...

My question is - shouldn't Sky (and other telcos) be doing more to stop these calls?

If there is a well known number which enough people report, should it be down to the phone provider to block it?

If there is a company which is breaking UK law but pestering people, should Sky be helping eradicate it?

I don't really want to pay extra for an optional service to block nuisance calls; I hardly use my landline and I actually get more junk calls than genuine ones, so my other option is to cancel my landline.

(Yes, I have also escalated the issue with TPS.)
