Today my phone has rung a few times and stopped before I could pick it up. The calling number was 0800 0641081 so I thought I’d ring it and find out who the idiot is who calls and instantly hangs up. Turns out the number belongs to a company called LBM.
From their website:
LBM is a results driven marketing company that designs and delivers unique marketing and planning strategies for businesses throughout the UK. Established in 1996, we now employ approaching 2000 staff across seven sites.
And from their Recruitment page:
If your personality rings true on the telephone, you have every chance of making it as an LBM Telesales Agent!
In other words, LBM are a telesales company who phone peoples’ mobiles and hassle the shit out them to buy something they don’t want. Wow, and if my personality rings true, I can get a job in telesales. Lucky me! No doubt they have found loopholes in the minimum wage so they can pay 2000 immigrants a paltry salary that wouldn’t keep a cat alive, whilst making them work 12 hour days phoning soon to be angry people.
