Found 8th Oct 2008
I was looking online the other day at the tocco phone on vodafone, don't know how vodafone knew but they rang me up to say They noticed I'd been looking at the tocco phone and asked what tarriff I was intrested in. I explained i was just having a nosey and would have to speak to my fella before I would/ if I would go ahead with getting it and the man was so rude! He said, are you over 18? I said yes. He said, do you have your own bank account? I said yes and he said we'll can't you make your own mind up? why do you need to speak to your boyfriend? I said "because I do" and he said "WHY?" really rudely! I just hung up. I couldn't believe it rude bugger!!

But you don't get a good signal if you do that! :oops:

Obv he's not going to get a sale like that, but he does have a very good point.

Vodafone let me off half my bill when my phone was nicked and the ****** spent the night on the phone to Ghana. So I'd give them another chance.

I'd still write and complain. There's no way on God's Earth that he idiot should have been so insulting.

As the said: You're ver 18 and in control of your own affairs. If you decide to carry them out in a way that is at odds with how the Vodamuppet wanted you to act, that's entirely your business, not that of the Vodamuppet.

Insulting you like that is highly unprofessional and entirely unwarranted.

As I said, I'd be tempted to make a formal complaint; explain clearly and succinctly what went on, make clear how insulting and degrading you found their call and ask what restitution they consider would be appropriate.

I would also be very strongly tempetd to ask how they knew it was you that was browsing their website. had they recorded your contact details as part a login or signup with the website? If so I guess you'd have a cookie set and they were alerted by their systems when you loggin in again and looked.

If you use BT as your ISP, have you ever had a Webwise alert page pop up when you logged in?

There's a trial being conducted by BT in league with an outfit called Phorm.
