    How To Get Rid Of Telemarketers

    <RRRrrrrinnggg&#33;>

    "Hello?"

    "Hello&#33; Mr. Michaels?"

    "Speaking."

    "How are you today?"

    "OK so far..."

    "My name is Debbie from Pointless Industries, and I&#39;m calling to offer you
    a fabulous new offer that we are offering...."

    "Who is this really?"

    "My name is Debbie from---"

    "How did you get this number?"

    "Well.. you are on our list of preferred---"

    <urgent whisper> "Listen to me, and listen good&#33; You tell Lupo and his
    goons I lived up to my end of the deal&#33; I cut up the bodies like he said, I
    ditched the car like he said, now I&#39;m out of it, understand? You tell him
    he bothers me or my family again and I take everything I know to the Man,
    and don&#39;t pretend you don&#39;t know what I&#39;m talking about&#33;"

    <hang up>

    telemarketers record phone calls
    They must have TONS of tape to record every phone call....and wtf do they record the calls for, it&#39;s practicly always the same thing..

    Hello, this is (superficial name), from (usless company), and we have a blah blah blah....

    I&#39;m pretty sure it&#39;s illegal for telemarketers to record phone calls as they are the ones calling you and you have to give consent to be recorded. This can come in the form of acquiesence when you call a company and on there automated message it says "this call may be monitored for quality assurance purposes" or some such nonsense thus informing you that your call may be recorded and then you have the option to continue the call or not...
    Anyway, nice one

    They don&#39;t start recording till they ask you.

    "Is it ok if i record this for our records...."

    Then its legal, otherwise, play with them.

    I always play the same game with telemarketers, my phone as a &#39;Hold&#39; button so when they ring I say to them "hold on I&#39;m just putting you on hold I need to grab the baby". Then I just leave them on hold and time how long it takes for them to hang-up. Seems to annoy them as much as them ringing annoys me. So far British Gas is winning with 14 minutes.

    Good one-I&#39;ll try it.

    I also like to answer: HELLO? HELLO? HELLO? (bang the phone) HELLOOOO?
    LOL
    Damn it&#39;s fun&#33;
    And so many opportunities to polish one&#39;s technique&#33;
    I regard them as true warriors-gluttons for punishment.

    best way to mess with them is talk to them, then put it on mute. see what they do. When they keep calling back do the same thing.

    I sense a marketing opportunity here-why don&#39;t WE tape THEM?
    In court-at a later date-"Yes, your Honor, that is my voice, but.......
