TPS is a service that gives you an opt-out for sales and marketing calls.

The caller claims that you need to make a payment to keep your telephone number on the register, and then asks for your payment details, this is a scam! because the TPS service is free once your number is on it and will remain on the system at no cost.

TPS will never contact you asking for your payment details of any kind, always be wary of cold callers and be careful not to give out personal details over the phone.

To report fraud call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
