Hi Richard |
I am with Andy and Dave on this I get the same calls
We have a couple of responses when the phone rings, if its not for work to be booked in then we cut them short and remind them that our number is registered with the TPS (Telephone Preference Service) and they are breaking the law by cold calling, they hang up or we will ask them is they are calling to book work in, if they reply no, then we tell them they have come through on the wrong number, we only accept calls for bookings. If they ask for the correct one I tell them I have been told not to give it out
Got caught on the hop yesterday, picked up the phone and they said straight away "Do you have a hot drinks machine on site" I just said no (in voluntarily response ) and they slammed the phone down
Free waist oil collections is climbing up the scale of frequently annoying calls
PS: Get quite a few call that flag up INTERNATIONAL on the display, when you pick up there is never anyone there, I think this is just to see if the number is active so they can spam call you at a later date (or sell the database on)
