Would it bepossible to start some kind of ground swell here in order to encourage people to withold their telephone numbers from companies; I am getting very annoyed with it now being the default position that virtually every organisation one has dealings with they think they have the right to demand a telephone number...which at the best they will use to call and seel you things or at worst they will ring to harass and cause distress.

 

Each time I call to pay my credit card I have a debate where I am asked for a contect number, and the member of staff informs me that they 'must have' a telephone number....when they did have my telephone number they called me 3 times a day when I refused to pay their charges that they later refunded.

 

Why does my bank, insurance company or credit card need my telephone number, except to sell me rubbish or harass me?

 

All companies now when you apply to them try to make it seem obligatory to supply a telephone number... which then becomes virtually public property; surely if more people refused then this would stop.

If they ask me for a number i give them one of my old mobile numbers and tell them i dont have a landline

There is no legal requirement to give anyone your phone number, so no-one should feel pressured into giving one ;)

I QUESTION THEREFORE I AM!! [sIGPIC][/sIGPIC]
