Telemarketing and Porky Pies

You'd think that telemarketing companies would be aware that they have a fairly poor reputation and do eveything to make sure that when they do talk to someone they try and come across as credible and persuasive.

Gecko Direct seems to have missed this trick when they called me this afternoon at 4.24 this afternoon (check your logs Gecko if you're reading this blog).

Within 120 seconds they managed to tell two lies to me
  1. That they had already spoken to me before
  2. That I had contract with 02
Guys - if you were a little more honest, you might even sell a few more phones and have less people write about you on the web
