Automated dialling!

Post by Elandale » Tue Mar 23, 2010 5:47 pm

The 'phone rings. I pick up the receiver. The call is connected but there's no one on the other end. It's another automated dialling call! Do these jokers really expect me to stand there, waiting until they (who called me!) are ready to talk to me? Not a cat in ******'s chance! :badday:

We used to get loads of "International" calls from India, until we realised that we could ignore them because of our caller display phone. Not only were we getting repeated calls from them the asian callers could barely speak english and they couldn't understand us very well! :rolleyes:

As for the automated calls, we used to get them too, but I can't remember how we got them stopped! I think we either reported them with BT or we just used to ignore any number that we did not recognize! :redface:

I think you'll find this website interesting:

This is even better:

I think you can report the offenders to the Telephone Preference Service and even then, you have to be wary which TSP you use!

The only thing I can suggest is by investing in a phone that has caller display, I hope this helps as it has done with us ;)
