Mary Cosh, who was bombarded by 10 nuisance calls in two days
• I WAS sorry to read your article about nuisance calls, (Mary, 100, bombarded by scam calls at her Barnsbury home, August 23).
Nuisance calls have been a problem for many people for several years. Fortunately, some phone companies now provide services which reduce or (almost) stop these calls, at no extra charge.
Regulator Ofcom provides information about these at www.ofcom.org.uk. As that article explains, BT Call Protect and Sky Talk Shield work in different ways. Since the article was written, TalkTalk has introduced a service similar to Sky’s.
