I have told you before about my relationship with telemarketers and like-minded people, how I WANT to be rude, but end up being… nice. For a person like me, the email I received this morning is just about as scary as they come; I cannot tell you how grateful I am to Marshall for sending it to me. Thank you. It is so scary I need to share it with you:
This is for Australian phone numbers.
REMEMBER: Mobile Phone Numbers Go Public next month.
REMINDER: all mobile phone numbers are being released to Telemarketing
companies and you will start to receive sale calls.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS
Below is a link where you can enter your phone numbers online to put an end
to telemarketing calls. Don’t just delete those calls. Otherwise you will find that you have been signed up for all sorts of extraservices that you didn’t want or know about. Like special chimes, music, etc.
IS THAT NOT THE MOST FREAKING OUTRAGEOUS THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?
How did that ever become legal? Who made that law?
I am now so registered that it is not funny. Best part? If I receive a call in 30 days from now, I am entitled to make a complaint! Watch my greasy hands go crazy writing that!
