Angry Cell phone spam

Got my first call from 000-000-0000 on my cell today. I did not wait around to see which cruise I won.

Instead I called Bell Mobility (makes you wish for Aliant Mobility) to explain that I was not interested in paying a charge for spam. The CSR indicated there was no charge for this call but there would be no way to reverse the charge had there been. Her solution was to register on the national Do-Not-Call list. Been there the first day.

In response to my statement that the list is ineffective outside Canada and that customers are on the hook for charges she kept to her script about the Do-Not-Call list.

The e-mails to Bell and Aliant have started.
