New Sort Of Nuisance Telephone Call

#1 by mikejee , Fri Aug 15, 2014 1:04 pm

Over the last 9 months or so i have had a lot of these unrequested calls, as probably have many of you. Today I received a new sort. Starting off by saying he understood i had been having these calls. Then saying he could help me "for only 1-80 a month over 3 years" and they would contact the people for me and make sure I was removed from their lists, EVEN CALLS FROM OVERSEAS, and by "paying 65 now for the whole 3 years I could get it for that fixed sum, so it would not go up with inflation". I put the phone down then. I don't know if it was a random call or if some will-maker, or charity that I had sounded off to very vocally had passed on my number.

Next time he rings, tell him you have already paid someone to thump nuisance callers and he can expect a visit, even if he is overseas.

That would be okay if a nuisance football match rings up.[Big Laugh]

I'm with Mike, football is always bad news.
The days of not being able to go into town on match days are long gone but never forgotten.
Politics and football turn ordinary people into lunatics.

I've never needed either, I am a self taught lunatic.
