Barclaycard Won’t Take No For An Answer

by | 17th, April 2007

WE all get them, those annoying marketing phone calls that interrupt your dinner or the dramatic climax of EastEnders. Yet despite organisations such as the Telephone Preference Service doing their best to help us dodge these useless calls, companies still persist.

Barclaycard has now taken telemarketing to a new level in cheek, reports the Telegraph, knowingly contacting customers who had previously asked not be phoned.

Finding a loophole in the system, the company has been contacting these customers and listing out all the services that the bank is unable to inform them about.

One such customer, Tig Gooch, received three calls in a week with the caller proceeding to tell her “because you have asked us not to contact you we are unable to inform you of our new and exciting financial services” before then listing all those services.

Best just keep your phone off the hook. All the time.
