How to report nuisance calls?

You can then report these calls to a number of organisations:

If you believe the calls may be related to fraudulent activity, could can contact Action Fraud.
Malicious, abusive or threatening calls are a criminal offence.
If you receive this type of call you should contact your phone provider immediately and request to speak with their nuisance calls team.
