Hi folks, you good? Nice to be back, today I want to rant about “cold calling”
What is cold calling?
It is when a company finds your home or mobile number and calls you to try to either sell you something or alert you to the fact you may be due money from someone or another.
While I am aware that we all have to earn bread and butter to survive I think that these companies can easily make your life a misery by repetitive calling, even when you tell them you are not interested, they will not give up and will often call you two or three times a week?
Imagine your sitting there in the comfort of your own home, your about to eat after a hard day work, the phone rings, you think its family or friends, when you pick it up it’s a “cold caller” how annoying, It puts you in a bad mood and your dinner is getting cold.
I have had a few even as we speak, and each time I politely told them not to call me again, as I have not had an accident at work in the last 5 years or been in a car crash.
So what can you do about it? Well there are several things you can do, thankfully nowadays your phone company can stop these calls, you inform them then they bar them from the network, you can also put in a number on your phone and this stops that particular caller from bugging you again.
I feel this is a form of harassment, and feel this should be addressed.
If you suffer from the above, get in touch with your phone company, and give yourself the peace you deserve.
