Stop Telemarketers At The First Hurdle
We have all been there. Sitting quietly reading a book, or settling down to the dining table, and then the phone goes. Mindful of the fact that it could be an important call, you pick up and answer and before you know it you are being bombarded with questions by someone asking you if you want to change your electricity supplier or trying to sell you insurance. Quite apart from being intrusive and impolite, it is incredibly annoying. And the worst thing is that because YOU are polite, you do not feel you can slam the phone down.
Well, there is no reason why you should necessarily answer the phone. As long as you have programmed your home or cell phone with the numbers of everyone who might have a good reason to call you, then their name will show up on the display. If the number is unrecognised then it need not be answered. If you then write down the number that has called you, all you need to do is check it with Reverse Phone Lookup and find out for good who called you.
If it was someone with a good reason, then no harm has been done – but if it was a telemarketer or troublemaker then they have no encouragement to call you again. This makes a big difference for a lot of people – the problem of nuisance telephone calls can be consigned to the dustbin, if you use Reverse Phone Lookup systems.
