Open letter to Rupert Murdoch (who lives off old ladies)

Multi-billionaire Rupert Murdoch is getting ever richer by harassing the elderly and vulnerable. I know of a lady in her nineties who is being phoned several times a week more than two years after cancelling her SKY subscription in an attempt to get her to switch back to SKY.

The indifferent young person on the other end of the phone does not say outright that he or she is phoning from SKY, rather some aerial company, but this is SKY and the pestering goes on.

So every time the phone rings this very elderly woman hurries as best she can to pick up the receiver and is confronted by slick sales talk which takes her some minutes to realise what is being proposed – that she parts with her pension to further boost the obscene earnings of the hard-nosed Rupert Murdoch.
Occasionally when someone else takes the call promises are given to delete the woman’s name. Of course this is simply a ruse to get the caller off the hook, so to speak, her name is not removed and the harassment goes on.

Do you have any idea of the misery you cause, Mr Murdoch? Do you care? Of course you don’t. There’s only one thing you appear interested in and that, apparently, depends on the continual hounding old people who are too confused, and or, polite to tell your call centre staff what to do with their tawdry jobs.
Clean up your act Murdoch – some hope.

  1. You may enjoy my current post about Rupert Murdoch. When I found the information, it was eye opening.

  2. Similar thing happened with my mother in law, who was in her 80’s, suffering from dementia, and it took an inordinate amount of time and effort by her son to sort out the mess.
