Synopsis >

A guy in England figured out a way to make money off those annoying telemarketers who call. Lee Beaumont set up an 0871 line with a company called PhonepayPlus, which forces callers to pay 16 cents per minute, about 11 cents of which goes directly in Beaumont € s pocket. He € s been using the line since 2011, and says so far he € s made around $465. However, PhonepayPlus says its service is not meant to be used in this way and those who go against the company € s code could be fined.
