Richard Herman got so fed up of companies cold calling him that he threatened to start charging the company £10 per minute for his time on the phone if they called again.
Indeed they did call again and Richard, as promised sent off an invoice and a threat to sue. The company involved paid the invoice instead of facing charges in the small claims court. Richard received £195.
He now runs a blog and forum http://www.saynotocoldcalls.com/ showing others how to do the same if getting pestered by unwanted sales pitches.
It just goes to show that we will still champion the little guy when they win against the bullies!
