Three Little Words That Work !!
1)The three little words are: 'Hold On, Please...' Saying this,
while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up
immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more
time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt. Then
whenyou eventually hear the phone company's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you
know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has
efficiently completed its task. These three little words will help eliminate
ALSO YOU ARE FREE TO ASK: "DO YOU HAVE A DO NOT CALL LIST? "
AND THEY WILL SAY YES BUT IT WILL TAKE A FEW WEEKS TO GET YOUR NAME OUT OF THE SYSTEM" AND YOU SAY,"THAT IS FINE JUST DO IT...TAKE MY NAME OFF.AND *PUT DO NOT CALL** IN BIG LETTERS, PLEASE ASAP."
2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the
other end? This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone
calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This
technique is used to determine the best time of day for a 'real' sales
person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after
answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting
your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as
quickly as possible This confuses the machine that dialed the call
and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not
to have your name in their system any longer !!!
3) Junk Mail Help: When you get 'ads' enclosed with your phone or
utility bill, return these ads' with your payment. Let the sending
companies throw their own junk mail away. When you get those
'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything from credit
cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return
envelope. Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes,
It costs them more than the regular 37 cents postage 'IF' and when
they receive them back.
It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was
around 50 cents before the last increase and it is according to the weight.
Int that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it
in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.
Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express.
Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that
day, then just send them their blank application back! If you want to
remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send
You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep
them guessing! It still costs them 37 cents.
The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of
their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them.
Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all
they're paying for it...Twice! Let's help keep our postal service
busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business
profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again.
You get the idea !
If enough people follow these tips, it will work ---- She has
been doing this for years, and she says she get very little junk mail
THIS JUST MIGHT BE ONE E-MAIL THAT YOU WILL WANT TO FORWARD TO YOUR FRIENDS!
