    'Cold call' 'phone calls - just after online order 17th Oct 16 at 11:25 AM
    AS anyone else noticed that cold call increase after doing an on-line order.

    Have noticed it in the past after a moonpig order, and more recently after M & S ?!

    Made over 30 online purchases in the past month alone, and not had any cold calls.
    Maybe it's just coincidence?

    do you get cold calls in summer , or just winter?
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?

    Not calls but most firms, even the well known ones will eventually spam you no matter how meticulous you are with ticking/unticking boxes to say don't.

    Sure enough a few weeks, even months later the emails start requiring you to unsubscribe.

    Of course I use an old gmail account for all orders these days that I only check when I need to so not a big problem, just a cheek.

    Often when you unsubscribe and give the reason, one of the tickboxes is 'I never subscribed to this' and well they know it already!

    Cold calling should be made a criminal offence.

    I recently had a sudden proliferation of calls, but I couldn't recall who I'd just given my phone number to. I'd just succeeded in getting them down to once a tall time.
