Personally I'm leaning towards this approach :D


Revenge on the Telemarketer

Three Little Words That Work !!

(1) The three little words : "Hold On, Please..."

Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of
hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more
time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt. Then when
you eventually hear the Telstra's "beep-beep-beep" tone, you know it's time
to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its
task.

These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting.



(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other
end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and
records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is
used to determine the best time of day for a "real" sales person to call
back and get someone at home.

What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is
to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as
quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialled the call and
it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have
your name in their system any longer !!!

(3) Junk Mail Help:

When you get "ads" enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return
these ads" with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own
junk mail away.

When you get those "pre-approved" letters in the mail for everything
from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away
the return envelope.

Most of these come with postage-prepaid return envelopes, right?

It costs them more than the regular 50 cents postage "IF" and when they
receive them back.

It costs them nothing if you throw them away! In that case, why not get
rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little,
postage prepaid return envelopes.

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a
pizza coupon to Westpac. If you didn't get anything else that day, then
just send them their blank application back!

If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on
