    This used to go round a few years ago - I used to say that I couldn't go on holiday anymore after what happened last time I left the pit bulls with a sitter....

    Rang me today and the name rang a bell and was sure i'd read about them on here so while she was yakking I found this thread, unfortunately one of switches in the classrooms had a malfunction and I had to dash off, shame really the argos/mark and spencers vouchers would have come in handy and so would the tickets to the ruby....

    They're back under a new name. Or at least another company is copying their tactics.

    I've just had a phone call:-

    Asked for my home address to send M&S vouchers to - I refused.
    Gave me a security code - I've no idea what for.
    Asked what I was doing at the weekend - Laura of MCS used to ask for dates when people would be on holiday.
    Said they were selling triple quantity cartridges - just like MCS used to offer.
    Offered to send samples of said cartridges @ 120 each, then mentioned an invoice.

    I put the phone down at that point.

    The only improvement over MCS is that this time he gave a full address for the company. Somewhere in Cornwall.

    I cannot remember the name of the company - I wasn't really listening - sorry.

    If anyone else get this, please let me know the name so I can alert the LA.

    I had the same "are you going on holiday soon" and "what time do you work until" questions. Creepy.
    Be careful guys....
    Yes, that's them. Same script.

    I had Laura call me twice a few years ago. I can't believe they are still doing it.

    The name of the company this time wasn't MCS though. (It was three letters, I just can't remember).

    I think these guys called me today, wanted to send me a free MP3 player as "thanks for assisting with a survey" to my home address. I only took the call from reception as I was bored and felt like telling someone to bugger off myself for a change, so I wasn't really paying attention to the name of the company, was definitely a three letter name though. Not that pushy though, in fact they hung up almost immediately when I replied that I wasn't interested.

    we had them again (3rd time in 2 years) today. heard my boss talking to someone on the phone and as soon as he mentioned "well the guy i work with is an arsenal fan so we'll take one of those" i knew it was them. brought up this thread as he was on the phone and he said "sorry actually we're not interested".
    but they are definitely doing the old "do you like football/rugby/F1 as we have tickets/shirts/etc"

    I've just had them again for the first time in a good year or so!
    "Simon from MCS" when he managed to get his way through to me, but when I took the transferred call it was back to "Simon from Millennium"

    Apparently, and I quote, they "have won a contract to supply toner to the whole of the Premier League!!"
    I stopped him in his tracks and said "I know exactly where this is going - you're about to offer me a T-Shirt aren't you", to which he replied "Umm, no"
    He tried to wrap the call up by saying "Ok, I've got your details I will send you out all of the info". I replied "What info?" to which he replied "about toners and t-shirts!"
    Needless to say I finished the call by instructing him to remove my name + the school details from his database, and to only call me in future if he wishes his company to be reported to the relevant agencies!

    "have won a contract to supply toner to the whole of the Premier League!!"
    my replay should have been.. "Sorry mate im a school not a football club.. maybe i can educate you in the differences between a school and the Premier League..."

    Guess what?

    I have just had the same call.
    I'm going to get two free T-shirts apparently. One for F1 and the other from the Premier league.

    We shall wait and see!

    MCS must think we are all uneducated muppets, there is no toner in the world that can do 50k prints! oh wait he keeps changing his mind its 40k now!
