We advertised extraordinarily cheap but very desirable items in regional newspapers. Callers to the featured phone number heard a frustrated voicemail explaining that there was no bargain available, but an irate Toyota Yaris owner had placed a hoax advert with their mobile number as revenge for disrespecting their car. For example, for the spa break advert the message was: ‘Please stop calling. I don’t do Reiki. Or Swedish massage. And I’m not irrigating anyone’s colon. There’s no free luxury spa break, OK? My girlfriend placed a fake ad in revenge because I got a spec of mud on the paintwork of her Toyota Yaris. I work nights and need to sleep during the day so please, no more calls.’
