The ideal solution for getting the best from your cold callers!

Post by noodles on Thu Aug 29, 2013 11:00 am

...man sets up personal 0871 telephone number and makes 10p a minute from businesses and cold callers

"A man who got annoyed by cold callers interrupting him while he was watching television has got his own back by setting up his own premium rate number which makes him money.

Lee Beaumont paid £10 plus VAT to set up his personal 0871 line in November 2011, and said he has made £300 from the calls he has received since.

Beaumont, from Leeds, told BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme: "I was getting annoyed with the PPI calls when I'm trying to watch Coronation Street, for instance, so I'd rather have an 0871 so I can make 10p a minute.

"I thought there must be a way to make money off these phone calls."" lol!
