Re: How can i stop the Cold Calling?

I find that simply asking them whether they speak english puts them off pretty quickly - a genuine caller will genuinely try to communicate (I've even had the electricity lady tell me that she will find someone who speaks english and then call me back within 20 minutes, and they did!).

The genuine callers are more than willing to make the effort to communicate across the language barrier - telemarketers give up straight away - it's very hard to 'pressure sell' in broken english
