I've won the lottery!

The last person who lived here must have got around a bit. I used to get about 1 telemarketing call every month. Now I get a call about once a day.

Occasionly, I'd get a recorded phone call, telling me I've won some lottery in some far off place. This was amazing news as I hadn't even bought a ticket! All I need to do is call a premium rate line and probably hand over a processing fee.

I called the BT operator service, informing them. I was passed onto the TPS - a service where I can opt-out of telemarketer calls. Call me naive, but these people are already breaking fraud laws, I doubt breaking a lesser law is going to be much of a deterant.

I'd have called the operator back, but Stargate Atlantis was about to start.


  • Stargate beats being on perpetual hold. Also, have you ever noticed the easy-listening music they play on hold is rarely easy to listen to? Hmmm.
