KiwiNZ:
What they are doing is better than being unemployed.


For them, maybe (even most of the people doing that job legitimately hate doing it).
For the rest of us being pestered by them, not a chance. :-(

What they are doing is criminal fraud - in their country, and in ours.

I am not referring to the  scammers I am referring to NZ based telemarketers

I confess, yesterday I got angry with a telemarketer, three calls in one day from a Dominion/Post telemarketer was over the top, on the third occasion I swore at him and invited them to bugger off.

In the last few weeks I have received probably a dozen calls.
