I can confirm that the anti-telemarketing script works, even if you just use part of it. You can feel the hesitation entering the conversation when you start deviating from their script !
This first time, I kept it short. Started asking questions, and when ‘Elizabeth’ told me that she just got my name from a computer I asked her to delete it from there. She even said ‘Thank you and Good day’ before she hung up.
Very funny. When she first introduced her she said her full name. When I asked her her name again, she gave me the company name. I asked her again for her name. This time I only got her first name.
I’m definitely going to try this again next time I get a telemarketing call.
