Rejection Hotline
If someone asks for your phone number and you don't want to give it to them, get rid of them discreetly by giving them the number for the rejection hotline. They'll think it's your number until they dial it up and hear this prerecorded message: "The person who gave you this number obviously did not want you to have their real number. Maybe you're just not this person's type.... This could mean short, fat, ugly, dumb, annoying, arrogant or just a general loser. Maybe you suffer from bad breath, body odor or even both. Maybe you just give off that creepy, overbearing, psycho-stalker vibe. Maybe the idea of going out with you just seems as appealing as playing leapfrog with unicorns." In LA the number is (310) 217-7638. (From LA Times article... Requires registration). Check out the website of the Rejection Hotline to find the number to call in your city. They also provide phony business cards.

Just thought you should know, as a followup to your article, that RH is also being misused by boiler room credit card hacks trying to "lower your interest rates"...I am on the Do Not Call list (married father of 2 who does not go clubbing or get involved in any situation where a RH number would be necessary) and in the middle of an international call, received a recorded call from "Card Services". Miffed that this interrupted my call (and that they violated the No-Call mandate) I waited for an operator. The "rep" was evasive about giving any contact info on the company, which is required by the FCC, and when I asked for a phone number they gave me a Texas number. She then got defensive and nasty and hung up on me. Of course I wished to let a supervisor know of all this so I dialed the number right back, only to get a Rejection Hotline script read back to me. So there is a company hiding behind this "fun" product using it for possibly illegal activities. RH should have a responsibility to track who they assign phone numbers to so this kind of activity can be traced if need be, this is not a dating or social situation but a company of dubious legality operating under the smokescreen of this RH.

While RH is not directly responsible for the frustration and inconvenience I experienced, their product's presence made it possible for this firm to continue safely targeting innocent consumers. This is another side to this product that people should be made aware of.
