    We started getting spam calls literally the day we moved into our new place (with new phone number). not impressed. That reminds me to get our new number on the no-call list. https://www.donotcall.gov.au/index.cfm

     

    on a similar note, where can I get hold of the no spam letterbox stickers?

    It's not so much the phonecalls but bloody letters, everyday 2/3 letters, I keep puttin RTS on them and shoving them in the postbox, but quite frankly don't see why I should, we have been in the new place 8 mths now and it's pissin me off. Went to the post office n they said it's illeagal to bin someone elses mail and the postie has to post them to the address that is on the letter aarrgh...

    With regards to the phonecalls, I just say sorry not interested bye and hang up, as i'm sure some do it just to wind you up.

    I reckon a similar call to me would have ended at 'are you the house owner?' :cute:

    How to deal with the calls ;)

    1 always say your property is rented they slam down the phone!

    2 the you have a virus on your pc you dont own one!!

    3 when they ask for you by name don't say speaking ask what it is in relation to then say you will put the person on, just leave line open and carry on with what your doing go back 15 mins later and they will be gone never to phone again!!

    4 blow a whistle down the phone at then.

    5 pretend it's a ring back for a sex line you (pretend) to work for talk really dirty to them and again they never phone again!

    You can actually have lots of fun with them lmao

    Think it would have really pissed me off to. I always tell them I rent and they don't phone again. Good ideas about how to deal with them but please don't blow a whistle down the phone, you could cause some permanent injury to their eardrums. As much as I can't stand them at the end of the day they are only doing their job to provide for their family.

    Yes but to ask why they cannot come to your house and why you cannot afford it is a bit intrusive...next time i will invite them round and let them meet the Ridgeback X Rottweiler...

    We agree with you,

     

    Nobody has the right to speak to anyone like this job or no job, there is a correct way,being polite costs nothing especially when they are calling you-If you want the service you would be calling them-they dont get it or care-

    I thought getting calls about windows was bad enough,or those door to door salesman- Does this happen alot??

    Anyway all the best and its always better to get these things off your chest
