    Hi,

    I have registered with TPS (http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/) which
    stopped some telemarketing calls we were getting a while back, however
    recently we've been getting a new type of Telemarketing call. It is a
    pre-recorded American voice which talks about John Lewis and Marks and
    Spencer.

    It seems under the 'complaints' section for TPS that they want you to
    have got the number that called and the name of the person that rang,
    but we can't get this information as it is a pre-recorded voice.

    Has anyone had experiences with this sort of intrusive, non-human
    marketing tactic?

    Um, ignore that, it was meant for a different newsgroup.
    (They're easier to confuse in Thunderbird because Thunderbird
    abbreviates the newsgroup names!)
