(1) The three little words are "Hold On Please...." Saying this,while putting down the telephone 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 phone company'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 to eliminate telephone soliciting.
(2)Do you receive ANNOYING PHONE CALLS with no one on the other end ?
This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes telephone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This ruse is used to determine the best time for a Real sales person to call back. 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 and removes your number from their system, 'What a shame'.
How do you deal with Annoying telephone calls?
