I received a phone call yesterday from France Telecom to tell me I had won a "completely free" mobile phone.
I didn't take up the offer as I had to take out a monthly contract which I don't want, but, the interesting thing that came to light was when the sales lady asked If I was over 69 as it is against the law here to try to sell something over the phone to people over that age.
Now I know how to cut short their spiel immediately!
lol i must remember that one with telephone sales calls i usually politly but firmly tell them im not interested and say have a good day goodbye. on avarege get 4 to 7 a week i want to know how they get my phone number?
Please note that Sapins resides in France and the offer was from France Telecom. I assume that they operate under French law and I am not aware of an eqivalent law in the UK (I am open to correction by UK lawyers).
I agree with watchful that you should try the telephone preference service (its free) and once you have been registered for about a month all those annoying calls from within the UK should stop.
