Hang up on them. And if someone is selling something at the door - i just say sorry i'm not interested and shut the door.

You can put yourself on the Australian Direct Marketing website, to stop people who are on the list, and there is also a DO NOT CALL register being developed. If someone calls from Optus, I tell them my husband works for Telstra, etc.

It's Bel, not bell. Check L Knell's thread on million post reunion. She put a picture of a bell, and said no more, as I have been banned.

I always have tham take me off their calling list. I write down the date, time, and who I talked to. It's a serious offense if they call back after you've requested to be taken off their calling list.
