insisted on coming inside to see the bill on the internet via my private email. I told him I was busy but he kept insisting to come inside and asked if I had "someone in there".
By this point I was getting ... annoyed and said no I would be fine with Telecom, at this he insinuated I wasn't busy and said I was "just being lazy". He also seemed frustrated I didn't find paying the bills difficult and wanted to know what I did...
Tell your mate next time they come over to ask for their telstra ID number and then get them to say "Thanks I'll talk to Telstra myself about this", then go inside and close the door.
Yeah sounds suspect to me.
I do believe the door knockers that come to you do need to adhere to some sort of code or act. I saw it on Fair Go once.
Part of that would be asking permission to come and if it's not granted to simply leave people alone. After all they don't want to co-erce a sale (that and it's technically trespassing)
Also if they gave their Telstra ID Number and that guy rang up Telstra to connect then wouldn't they get the sale ?
