A predictive dialler is stalking me. It’s been ringing for a couple of weeks now. If the phone rings and the caller ID says "Private Number" and there’s silence on the other end, then hold music, I just hang up. Honestly, what a nerve – them ringing you up to put you on hold until they have someone free to talk to you. It seems to happen several times a week. They obviously need to tune their phone-answering-optimism factor or whatever it’s called.
Today it rang three times. When I answered it the second time, I again got the hold music. Fortunately I had answered in my spare room on my handy dandy phone which has the Hold facility. So I put them on hold. I don’t know if the predictive dialler handed the call to a human or not, but whoever (or whatever) was on the other end held on for a minute, before hanging up!
Time for a survey. What should I do?
