British Gas are very persistant

It's over a year since I ditched them for boiler maintenance. They still call me nearly every day. As I have barred them on my phone, they get engaged tone and get charged for the call.

What a way to run a business.

I terminated my contract with them about a year ago and other than one letter confirming cancellation have heard nothing else from them.

Perhaps a call to their Customer Services advising that you do not wish to be called would have resolved the issue?

My phone answers the call and returns engaged tone, not the exchange.

I remember about two years after they were privatized that several of their sales people came knocking on our door shouting and claiming we need new sprockets. There 4 of them. in Business clothing and claiming we need new sprockets and bolts and radiators and may be another boiler. Which we didn't

Basically they were trying to rip of my dad. They were very persistent and we said sure we call you as soon as you get back at the office.
