  1. stopwakingthebaby! reported TNS with the number 02084334287 as Survey

    Calls anytime from 8am to 9pm, multiple calls a day. At least 5 (that I've answered and told them to removey number) in the past month. 10.45am on a Sunday! This is the last straw. New plan: answer when they ring, ask their name, where they work, how long for, do they enjoy their job, does it pay well, do they have a uniform, what is the uniform, if not why not, what do they wear then, what underwear, do they not like questions, why do this job if you don't like questions, do you find this sort of questioning intrusive, annoying, why,why,why,why?

    Call them on their Freephone number 0800 015 1037 then hang up

    Hi Bill I have just rung that freephone number and the manager answered, her name is Lena Patel, and she has apologised and agreed to take my number off thier list, it maybe worth a try. She says that she doesn't usually pick up the phone so ask for her by name.
    Kind regards and good luck.

    This is one of the most persistent callers I have come across. Eventually, I found the contact number to remove yourself from their list. ( They claim not to sell on your details from calling numbers on this page.

  8. Steve J reported TNS Global working on behalf of Department of Heal with the number +442084334287 as Survey

    SERIOUS WARNING...I'm a solicitor dealing with welfare benefit appeals and more and more clients are coming to me after completing this telephone "survey" and within 72 hours their ESA and PIP claims are being suspended or declined. It's my belief that The DWP are using this company to investigate claims and claimants. Yes, the survey is conducted on behalf of the NHS, but under the data transfer rules; The DWP can immediately access the same, so all fully legal and above board but extremely unfair and deceptive

    Response replied 2016-04-12 15:53:49
    What an absolute load of nonsense. You are just trying to promote your own business.

    Re the silly response posted by anonymous Hmmm!..1. How can I promote my business when there's no advert, phone number, contact details etc for anybody to use?
    2. CAB are presently conducting a social policy investigation due to the amount of benefits claimants coming to them, nationally, complaining that their disability benefits have been suspended within days of receiving one of these calls from TNS. So, clearly not a load of nonsense!
  9. Ziva reported number 02084334287 as TNS Global

    I am sick of this company using my private number to contact me day and night. I am a disabled senior and by the time i get to the phone it's rung off, i do 1471 only to find it's this company. I don't do surveys of any kind so why can't i block them please, after all it's my phone and i pay for it - surely i have the right to decide who calls it? I thought being ex directory meant just that.

  10. baz reported unknown with the number +442084334287 as Survey

    Told them if we get anymore calls we will contace the police and information commissioners office with a view to prosecution for niusance.

If your call is soooooooooooooooooooooo important then simply leave a message and I will decide to call you or not. If you can't be bothered to leave a message then F O and DO NOT CALL BACK. EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER. Ok?

  20. Sarah Devine reported unknown with the number 02084334287 as trustworthy number

    Genuine survey company doing government funded research. Got some numbers at the end to verify they are legit. If you're complaining about the 'state of the country' but not willing to partake in research to help improve it then stop moaning!!
    TNS are a genuine company. The survey did not take very long- i don't see why people are getting so angry?

    Dave H replied 2014-11-27 10:56:24
    People are getting "angry" because they don't want/need to be answering surveys at random times of the day whilst they are cooking their dinner, putting their kids to bed or having to stop a brilliant threesome upstairs with next door's neighbour just to answer a bloody nuisance phone call. Now, do you have any other questions?
  21. Ida reported unknown with the number +442084334287 as Survey

    I rang the 0800 number below and although Nena Patel doesn't work their any longer , I spoke to a very helpful man called Alex who listened carefully and checked which survey I was being called about. He then took my number off the list and said I would no longer receive calls about that survey. I then asked him if I could have my name removed from all future surveys and he said he would put my number on their exclusion list which would stop any calls except for government surveys and anything I may have signed up for, knowingly or unknowingly, online or other. So, let's hope it all works as I have been called several times a week.

  22. KLUK reported unknown with the number +442084334287 as Survey

  23. grumpy old man reported tns with the number +442084334287 as Survey

    Everyday this week, everyday this week I have told them to ago away 'politely'.

    Add to that the everyday calls I have had this week from the Indian sub continent and you wonder why we get upset.

    It is about time HM government made it an offence under 'a harassment law?"

  24. TNS employee reported unknown with the number 02084334287 as trustworthy number

    I know no one will listen to anything that I have to say but... I work for TNS. I may have called you. There a lot of bashing going on here and this website is for factual information to help people so I thought I'd give you some.

    TNS is a market research organization which has done research for many government bodies including but not limited to: HMRC, BIS (department for buisness, innovation and skill), Public Health England, Sport England, the European commission and these are just the jobs I've worked on.
    We do not give your details to anyone as it is against the Market Research Societies Code of Conduct. You can verify that TNS (Taylor Nelson Sofres) is a genuine market research company bu calling the MRS' verification number which is 0500 39 69 99 for free of charge. People who work for TNS are not stupid idiots that strive to ruin your life they are people, mostly students or graduates who are just trying to earn a living instead of claiming benefits. I myself have a double honors degree but everyone assumes that I am doing what I do just because I didn't listen at school.

    Ex-directory means just that, you are not in the directory. It does not in anyway prevent anyone from calling you, let alone market research companies.

    TPS only covers sales and marketing, as TNS is genuine market research which is 99% of the time working on behalf of government bodies it does not affect us. If you do not want to be called again by TNS (or any other legit research org.) then ask to speak to the supervisor and to be put on an exclusion list. If you do not believe Market research is exempt from the TPS, please go to this website (the tps' website) Number 17 down on the FAQ will provide the answer you want.

    It is not illegal to call you, or we wouldn't be funded by the government to do it.

    Numbers are randomly dialed for the Active Person Survey, which is what this survey is. That means that we are given an area code and the computer randomly dials the last digits. For example: 0208 0000000 then 0208 0000001 etc. This is done at the request of Sport England who have commissioned us who believe it is the best way to get completely unbiased results as we do not know anything about the people we call.

    If you want any further information about the Active People Survey please visit the Sport England website:
    Results are shown here on a monthly basis.

    We call 9am-9pm Monday - Friday. 9:30am - 9am Saturday and 10am - 9pm Sundays. We do this because we appreciate that there are people that work shifts, as I myself do, and want to give everyone the chance to take part. Please, next time you tell someone you've had a hard day at work try and understand they are still at work, at least you can relax after you hang up.

    I know next to nobody will have read to the end of this but if you have thank you very much and I hope that removes any worry you may have about the legitimacy of TNS. If you have given the person on the phone enough time or asked them they would have explained all this to you, I know I would, as we have nothing to hide.

    I am sorry it's been a long one, but I get thrown accusations at me every day of the week and I felt it was only fair that for once I could defend myself and my company without being Hung Up on.

    Thank you for your time.

    Rob replied 2014-07-20 00:18:33
    Thanks for your comment and explanation - people on this thread seem to be filled with inaccurate information about TNS. Especially when it comes to being ex-directory or on the TPS

    Infact if you think about it, by excluding TPS customers from market research you'd actually be biasing the results of any research that gets done!

    TNS provide a valuable service to numerous government offices and other public bodies!

    What the people here don't seem to understand is that ultimately a lot of research that's done over the phone can impact their daily lives. I.E where public money is spent based on general public demands. By not completing the (usually incredibly short) surveys these idiots in the thread are actually no longer getting heard.
    I'm sure these NIMBYs would be the first to complain if a public service was cut in their area that they use due to a perceived lack of demand because the people didn't take time to listen to the guy on the end of the phone explain himself and thus the research showed that noone in the area used said particular service.

    What the below idiots also fail to understand is that by asking civilly, they'll happily put your number on the exclusion list, and that by not answering the survey, hanging up or being rude they're the ones that are increasing their own call count when TNS try at a later date!

    So basically; shut the F up you whiners below. Do a quick google about them and then start worrying and moaning about the bigger problems in life....

    All in the above explanation may well be true, however, it seems that the prerson who wrote it believes that because they claim it is a legitimate call that it somehow makes it ok. Does it therefore remove our rights? If I don't want to take part in a survey, do I not have the right to mdecline, politely. That is exactly what I have done and yet the calls keep coming. Some of us just want a peaceful rrrtttirement without intrusive phone calls.. Maybe when you have finished with your degrees etc and have spent a lifetime working you too will relish the thought of a peacefull retirement without unsolicited phone calls.

    Sex with children is not illegal in some countries but its still wrong.

    No matter how legitimate you think you are you are still causing a nuisance to people which is wrong. You have no legitimate reason to contact the people you are calling.

    What I do is give as much false information as possible then at the end ask to be removed. Then report to the TPS. Even if they think they are immune from TPS rules. The more complaints they get the more likely the rules will eventually be changed.

    At the very least if they call you answer the phone then wait for a human then hang up. That way you have caused them a nuisance also. If you just ignore or hang up straight away then its caused them no problem. Its only the computer doing all that. Once you answer the computer puts you though to a human. That's when their time is being wasted.
    Leave-Me-Alone replied 2014-09-17 21:19:09
    TPS is a voluntary attempt by the DMA to prevent nuisance calls in order to prevent legally enforceable regulations being imposed on them.
    An unlisted number is covered by the Communications Act in which it States that it is illegal to make an unsolicited call to such a number.
    The complaint has to be made to OfCom not the DMA via TPS.
    By responding to any such call, you identify the number as valid and they will keep calling.
    dave replied 2014-12-09 19:11:29
    I think everyone one this thread should set up a simple dialer script to call your friggin 0800 number at all times of the day and night and hang up after 3 seconds. see how you like it, after all, ITS NOT ILLEGAL?!

    WheelieUK replied 2015-08-04 20:07:15
    Thank you for such a precise response. It must have taken some time. Speaking personally, my problem is that TNS do not honour requests to be removed from calling lists. My neighbour and I are both being called on a daily basis by TNS. After declining the survey and asking, politely, to be removed from their database I continued to receive such calls. In the end, after 3 months work of calls I blocked the caller on a Truecall unit. Now they call, get charged for the call, but don't get to bother me.
    I block callers very infrequently, preferring to get removed from the lists, but this company just doesn't give up.

    I do appreciate your comments but hope you can also see it from the other side of the coin.

    Incidentally, I DID read your post, to the end. ;)
    anony replied 2015-12-30 16:35:04
    Yes, I know TNS is a market research organisation. I know you're not actually breaking any laws when you ring up ex-directory, TPS registered numbers. But for goodness' sake, if we don't answer it's either a) because we're not in or b) because we don't want to deal with unsolicited callers. At that point, take a hint. Leave a message; explain the validity of your call; give us a freephone number to ring you back if we'd like to take part. THEN DO NOT RING AGAIN.

    If you explain yourselves well enough; if your research is valid enough, have faith - if we want to, we'll take you up on it.

    The reason you're getting so much grief is a damned persistence of these ruddy unsolicited call. If we don't pick up the phone,we get called again and again and again. It's relentless. TAKE A HINT. If we don't answer, don't keep ringing back.

    Yes - I read to the end of your comment. Will you read this? Will anything ever change? If it doesn't, please don't be surprised that people are pee'd off. You've upset us.

    Very rude woman who was reading very quickly then asked if I had a few minutes to answer questions for a survey about leisure time. I said that my number was ex-directory and how did she get it.

    I said that I charged for taking part in surveys. He said it would only take 5-10 minutes, so I said at my professional rate that was £25. He said so 'over £100 per hr' and I said - yes, for cold calling surveys. He wished me a good day and I wished him the same. I then blocked the number.
