Subject: RE: BS: Maddening phone call surveys
My standard reply to anyone who says they are conducting a survey is to ask them for their Market Research Society Registration Number - they usually hang up immediately.

More fun is the sales people - I have now invented a new fun system. I tell them that I have just moved in and that I am German. My name is Frau Dulant and I have an account at Kohn Bank with the number SUR218SC4M. Had a brilliant one two days ago for solar panels - strung them along for 20mins before I told them I was in a ground floor flat - it was when I asked them if they could be attached to my windows instead of a roof that they rang off.

All good fun...if you have the time
