I've also pretend that the intended person is dead.

Allemaal leuk en aardig maar wij zijn niet geïnteresseerd, En bij deze wil ik het gesprek dus beëindigen, een fijne dag nog.

Translated: All nice and good but we are not intrested, And at that I want to end this conversation, Have a nice day.

Also Alison: LOL

A polite "Piss Off" usually works.

With the ever annoying ppi, (am I the only person in the country not to have taken out a mortgage/loan/other credit and am feeling a little left out?) I politely ponder every question. Sometimes I take up to a minute remembering back through the years.
Usually it takes around half an hour or 40 minutes to get through all their questions. Then, after a puzzled pause they say, "Well, I'm afraid it doesn't look as if you can claim anything."

To which I reply, "That's just what the last bloke said as well."
