118 118 Rip Off Merchants (Rant)

Few weeks back I was in a bind and desperately needed a telephone number so I phoned 118 118, I could sense the women on the other end was stalling for time asking stupid questions and asking me to spell every word I said :-roll They were having trouble finding it so I had to push her along some.

Finally got the number I needed and ended the 53 second call. Got my telephone bill and the charge was just over £7 :-jawfloor

I thought it was going to be expensive at around £2 or £3 but not £7 for 53 seconds :-tothehand

What they should be made to do is tell you what the price is per minute by automated recording before you decide to proceed to an operator.

No wonder they've gone into the loan business and have so many ads on tv. £7 is a complete joke :-jack

I got stung by them too. Won't be ever using them again that's for sure.

My mother also got walloped with a big bill. The operators try to keep you on the line as long as possible for obvious reasons.
