Telemarketers Are Back, Car Sales Exposed
Posted 17 October 2007 - 01:50 AM
glad to hear we're not the only ones being annoyed by telemarketers from india. Some of these can usually be very persistent after you've said no thanks. Nowdays i can pick one of these calls by the long pause between pick-up and answer from other side (obviously using auto-diallers) - i just hang-up.
And the timing! usually right in the middle of tea or late at night when all you really want to do is relax.
On the odd occasion when they are right on the button, I certainly let them know where they stand (my wife calls me rude). I find that we are getting fewer and fewer calls. I have also given the same treatment to door knockers in the past - guess what, no more door knockers.
hey, if they want to be so rude as to disturb me during a meal or late at night, I can, and will, be just as rude to them
Some years ago I put my name on our no-mail list to stop direct marketeers inundating me with their junk mail, guess I might have to do the same with my phones.

Caller id/block is useless; unknown name/number is the norm any more and is not (according to my phone company) an anonymous caller. So unless I recognize the phone number, I rarely answer my phone anymore.
What an invasion of privacy. I should just turn it off.

But to get back on topic - unfortunately not everybody has the caller ID service available to them, so you cant weed out unwanted calls. However, you can tell where the call is coming from by the delay in answering back ie if there is a long silence after you have picked up the phone you can bet that your number has been dialed by a dialing machine in India.
So what's the remedy? We have a "dont call me" list here in Australia that's been put in place by our Government - I've put all my phones (2) on the list - guess what - no more telemarketer calls. But there is another option - get an answering machine (every call answered by the machine has to be paid for thus increasing the cost of running the call centre.) ]:)
