How to keep Telemarketers away?

1. If you get one of those pushy people who won't shut up, just listen to
their sales pitch. When they try to close the sale, just put them on hold
till they give up.

2. If they start out with, "How are you today?" Just continue on with
telling about your problems.

3. If the person says he is from the ABC Company, ask him to spell his name,
then ask him to spell the company name, then ask where it is located.
Continue asking personal questions or questions about the company until they
hang up.

4. Say, "No," over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each no, and keep
an even tempo even as they're trying to speak. Keep going until they hang

5. If nothing works, tell the Telemarketer you are busy and ask for their
residence phone number so that you can call them back late in the evening.
