So I had a car accident about a year and a half ago - it wasn't my fault and I suffered whiplash from the accident which meant I had to take a few days off work. I claimed personal injury compensation through my insurance at the time and received the money just a couple of months after the accident. However since then I have received the odd phone call from companies saying I'm eligible for compensation yadda yadda....each time I tell them I have already claimed and that's it. Recently though these calls have become more and more frequent to the point where I can get 7 or 8 calls a day. What makes it worse is that they are from a private number so I am unable to block them (as far as I know anyway). I don't know if they are all from the same company as I rarely answer them, but I have on the odd occasion to tell them (politely) to f*** off and stop calling me however that seems to work for about 1 day and then the calls start again. This has been going on for around 2 months now. Is there anything I can do to stop these calls or am I resigned to having to change my phone number? I really don't want to have to do that as I have had the same number for about 10 years and getting the new number to all my family, friends and work contacts would be a real pain.
