We do not recommended anyone does this, however it’s an interesting read regardless.
Lee Beaumont was sick of companies ringing him up trying to sell him things etc, so he setup a premium rate phone number which costed 10p to ring from which he received 7p. At a total cost of £12 to set up it wasn’t the quickest income generator however at time of writing it had made a total of £300 from it.
The number wasn’t given to family/friends but was given to banks, utility supplier etc
The amount of phone calls dropped from 20-30 per month to just 13.
