Just wonder, am I the only one? Or is it only happen in the place I work.

Since a few months ago, I keep receiving cold call, which will present themselve as blah blah blah company, asking for you fax, email number, position in company, age etc. Most likely call from India? The line is not very clear and a bit noisy in the background (a call centre may be). They may say they will fax or email their company info, but I never receive any single one.

Just wonder what are they doing this for??? For SPAM? Compiling company contacts? Or what? Anyone can enlighten me? :dunno:

maybe TS kena head hunt to work in India? :bsmilie:

I'm actually quite sick of all these calls..like lucky draws, time share holidays, insurance, credit cards, investment, make-over photo session..is there a law that we can protect our data from being sold? or can the telcos prefix some letters like AD-9xxx xxxx to the caller ID, so that we can choose to reject calls that are advertising nature..if these ppl want to contact me, shouldn't they be paying me for my contact data right? y pay money to the damn bas*tard who sold my contact..

Can we charge a person for nuisance calls if it is of advertising/selling/marketing nature?

Those are general cold calling, I think the manager must have given instruction to divert this kind of call to me :think:

Receive some investment, credit call, cashline call also....

What's a "cold call"?

Got hot call meh? Actually if Keira Knightley called me, it'd be a hot call.

No la, cold call is Darth Vader telling me cold jokes non-stop until I slam down the phone.

Hot call = Keira Knightley calling me to come over and cool her down.
