If someone covered the peephole of your door and then knocked on it – would you answer the door?
We hope not – neither would we.
In a similar vein, we used to get quite a few anonymous telephone calls from various sources – most often trying to sell us something or other – very often in an overly pushy way.
Anonymous calls are where the individual or organisation has pro-actively decided to withhold their telephone before making the call – or where their switchboard or telecomms provider has configured their system to do that for all calls.
After a particularly frustrating call we gave this some more thought and couldn’t think of any reason why a legitimate business calling us should withhold the number they are calling from…
…then, we discovered Anonymous Call Reject and it’s helped restore peace to the studio.
If you’ve just tried to call us, and received a message like…
“The person you are calling is not accepting anonymous calls. Please redial without withholding your number.”
…we just wanted to explain why.
