Whoooo, I wasn't expecting such a response so quickly lol! I only went to make some toast! lol I've had to open this in a separate page so I can
reply to bits in one post, rather than keep making a reply to each.
Most of the calls I get are the kind where they play you for a fool, they make out you've made enquiries into whatever their pitching or have a
product you've bought before. "We understand you're looking for a loan..." "It's free to upgrade apart from the one off payment of £182, and
then the continuance of 42 monthly payments of £18.70..."
Usually, I am very polite, but as you can imagine, after three calls a day every day for a month, my patience is wearing considerably thinner each day
Stringing them along is good and fine if I have the time, but sometimes I don't have the natural proclivity to wind people up.
Also, I hate
wasting time. Time is precious at the moment, since I get so little to spare, I really hate to waste it on the phone when I could be doing something
important... or catch up on my Xbox gaming
I like the idea about the whistle though. My son just got a recorder, perhaps I'll pay Hot Cross Buns down the phone to them
Yeah, they do mention PPI, but I know for sure I haven't got those kinds of insurances on my cards.
We have opted out of being listed in the phone book, and also sign up with the telephone preference service which is supposed to remove you from cold
call lists, which includes international numbers and also covers mobile numbers too.
That video is actually a pretty great way, I will have to try that tomorrow when I will undoubtedly get another call
I always ask to be removed from call lists. It seems as though for every company that loses us, another three get our details.
The worst was when I got a call from Great Ormand St hospital looking for donations. How awful did I feel having to let her down, but at least she was
gracious about it.
I have been told to let them stay on the line, but I don't like the idea of putting the phone down and having them potentially listen to anything
that might be going on in the house. I did say earlier on Twitter, that if I got another one, I'd put a porno on, leave the phone by the speaker and
leave the room lol.
Haha I had a cold call from an Indian woman call 'Adrian'. I had a good laugh about that after.
I know some people who used to work for BT, and yeah, they would sign anyone up for anything they could get away with.
