Default had a call from bauer media

had a call about half an hour ago from 08452863002, the person asked for me but my oh decided i didnt want to speak and said i wasnt in...i was sat 5ft away!

she said it was from bauer media about a promotion and would ring back tomorrow. i just always associate bauer media with magazine wins, am i just going to get a call back trying to sell me a magazine subscription
i tried ringing it back but it was just a prerecorded message saying they had recently tried to contact me regarding a promotion and would ring back, if i didnt want to be contacted again i could have my name removed from future calls or something like that.
dont know what he was thinking, i am quite capable of dealing with callers myself, now i will just be thinking i have won something amazing and in reality i will be soooooo disappointed tomorrow

what do you think have you all been called by these thing to sell something?

I got one yesterday, but nobody rang back. My husband also said I was not available. Thanks for warning.

I had a call last night a 9pm from this number. They said they were calling from Your Horse (which is an equine magazine that I am already subscribed too) the man asked me if I wanted 3 magazines for 5. At first I thought great, but then they asked me for my account details and I thought hummm this sounds a bit dodgy. I told them I was busy cooking and they said they would call back the next morning. And they did without fail call back. I told them I was already subscribed and they soon put the phone down before I even had chance to ask where they had got my details from. So beware!!!

It's disappointing, but we need to remember that these companies don't just decide to give stuff away for no reason. They are a business and need to make money, so selling subscriptions is a way of doing that. It's a side effect of comping unfortunately.
When I see an animal, I say 'Hello'
When I see a human I try to avoid eye contact and hope they go away.
