    Just got a call from 'the wolfman' with a prerecorded message.

    Annoying and bad form, I think it would turn more people away than in would do any good. Didnt mind the SMS's as they can be informative but this is a very bad idea IMO.

    Hi there,

    Our aim was to remind Members to renew their membership in a fun way. Sending SMS after SMS, and emailing gets boring after awhile in my honest opinion.

    Apologies that you didn't like Wolfman's message. We will take your feedback on board for next time.

    Go Manly!

    Larissa

    I've had a pre-recorded call in the past too. Can't remember who from, but I thought it was pretty cool.

    I had a pre-recorded call in the past too. It cost me a fortune because i accidently called the stuttering nympho hotline. Bloody 0055 numbers are all so close to each other.

    Just received one aswell and thought Manly were outsourcing because to me it sounded like someone from an Indian call centre??

    I had no idea it was Williams and now to know if was the Wolfman - I think it is a fantastic idea (who has the balls to say no the the wolfman!!!) will make me renew the family memberships......and dog
