Is there a way of identifying a phone number online i.e. find out the name of the company calling?

We have been plagued for the last 3 months by a company looking for a person who doesn't live at our address. The address they have on their file is different to our's and we have asked them to remove it from their files and to stop calling our number.

Yesterday they phoned 3 times and my wife got (understandably) very annoyed. They call at any time from first thing in the morning to late evening.

I think I can get them to stop by threatening to report them to ofcom, but I would like to know who they are as they refuse to tell us.

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    you could use a search engine and search on the number with and without area code. might turn something up

    With regards to receiving persistent nuisance calls from major financial institutions, how far can you take your complaint?

    Is it possible to sue for damages(for instance)? Its just that this has gone on for too long now and I would really like to make them suffer.
