    I must admit, I have a tendency towards "voting with my feet" if it is something I can readily get elsewhere. If they put up roadblocks (either intentionally or unintentionally) in between me and my completing the transaction quickly and easily then my initial response is to see if it is easier and simpler to buy it elsewhere rather than to try and get the initial retailer to change their systems.

    When it comes to issues such as the "call connection service" scam, perhaps one in one thousand people makes a complaint.

    For nuisance calls, the figure is perhaps one in ten thousand, or worse.

    And, this is maybe why regulators are slow to act, absense of complaints is taken as absense of issue.
