richms: slingshot are the worst at telespamming, they seem to have made about 5 calls to mums place with dead air when answered before they finally managed to get a person connected when she answered. 90222 is the caller id that appears for them. First time I have seen her deal appropriately with a telespammer Wink

This is the auto dialler and it's how you generally spot a telemarketer in oz. When the auto dialler detects a voice answering the line it transfers the call to a real life spammer to read the sales pitch.
