An Automated Phone Hanging-Up Device For Ending Cold Calls From Marks And Spencers Money

by | 7th, October 2011

DO you want to stop unwanted calls? Are you fed up with, say, Marks And Spencer Money calling you 14 times in a single day? Well, you need a new phone number or a PX1020 Easy Hang Up. As the blurb tells us:

By simply pressing the activation button and hanging up the receiver (telephone), the device gives a short, polite, pre-recorded message.  Upon completion of the message, the device will disconnect the line.

• Companies may customize any message — the current micro-processor being used allows for a 20 second message.
• Easy Hang-Ups in stock come with a pre-recorded message for unwanted debt collector calls. The pre-recorded message is:

“Hello, you are hereby notified that we request all collection calls from your agency, firm and/or institution to my home, cell phone, and work cease immediately. You should remove all of my telephone numbers from your system. I demand that you communicate with me in writing to the address you have on file.”

This device will appeal to your inner pedant. Anyone who buys it will most likely secretly enjoy receiving cold calls.

Anyhow, what message would you leave? I’d go for the simple “Please hold” or the more menacing, “Hiya! I’m Noel Edmonds…”
