This Guy Makes Money EVERY Time A Telemarketer Calls

 

 

Meet Lee Beaumont. He got tired of telemarketers interrupting his favorite tv shows, so he came up with a BRILLIANT solution to his problem. He set up a new premium phone number,  through a service called Phone Pay Plus that acts as a hotline. He kept his home line private for friends and family and gave out the hotline number whenever a bank, utility or other company asked. So when telemarketers call Beaumont, they end up paying him 16 cents a minute for the privilege!! LOL!  Beaumont says he tells them upfront they’re being charged, but they still give him their spiel.. Since November of 2011, he has made nearly $500 off these calls! He says he actually looks forward to the calls now and has even tweeted the number out, hoping that new telemarketers will get it. Here's a link to the BBC story for more details. I want to try this!!!
