Interesting Fact - The Phone

According to research carried out by website, 9 out of 10 landline-users in the UK are bombarded by cold calls – despite half of them being ex-directory.

(8 out of 10 mobile phone users suffer too, and two-thirds also blitzed by spam text messages.

One call centre in the UK has been sending out 6 million unsolicited calls a day, even British Gas made 7,000 cold calls to 900 homes over the course of 2012, about 8 calls to each household.

I got one last night from a company conducting "surveys". I just said, politely, but firmly, "No thank you." Hung up, and then blocked that number.)
