    Default One way to deal with telemarketers

    BBC News - How one man turns annoying cold calls into cash

    A man targeted by marketing companies is making money from cold calls with his own higher-rate phone number.

    In November 2011 Lee Beaumont paid 10 plus VAT to set up his personal 0871 line - so to call him now costs 10p, from which he receives 7p.

    The Leeds businessman told BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme that the line had so far made 300.

    that's awesome. i don't get telemarketers anymore since i canceled my landline but when i did, i usually put my 3 yr old on the phone. nothing makes them hang up faster than a 3 yr old going "HI! HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?!"
