Best Idea I've Heard All Day
I think I have the Do Not Call lists, and my own hesitation to almost never give my phone number out to anyone to thank for the complete lack of telemarketer calls I get these days. I simply can't stand them, and when one sneaks through, I immediately ask them to add me to their No Call list.
That's why I love this story. A British man set up their equivalent of a 1-900 number, where people are charged per minute when they call. Then, he started placing that number on forms, giving it to store and writing it down anywhere when a business would ask for it.
The result so far: He's made about $465, while reducing the number of calls he receives a month from 20-30 to about 13.
Genius. Pure genius.
