Nuisance calls and messages

In this section, you’ll find information to help you reduce nuisance and unwanted calls and messages.

You’ll also find details of who to report them to. Depending on the nature of the call or message, that may be Ofcom, your provider, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), Action Fraud, or the police. Action Fraud is the reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Reports of fraud and any other financial crime in Scotland should be reported to Police via 101.
