Man Sues Telemarketing Companies, Uses Money to Open 'The Wrong Number' Bar

A man sued several telemarketing companies and used the winnings to open a bar called 'The Wrong Number.' So clever!

When one Winston-Salem man on the 'do not call list' tells telemarketers they have the wrong number, he means it.

In fact, Omar Khouri is using settlement money he has earned from going after those callers, to open up a brand new bar and restaurant downtown, where Bull's Tavern used to be.

Khouri is conveniently calling the new bar "The Wrong Number."

"I get so many phone calls every day for car warranties, debt relief, student loans," Khouri said. "Whatever it is they're selling — life insurance."

Khouri has run an IT company since 2006. However, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, he had a little more time on his hands to handle those calls none of us enjoy receiving.

"I didn't really have anything else to do because I'm stuck at home," Khouri said. "So I started answering the calls and talking to them and answering their questions enough to figure out who they are and then I was able to go after them."

This is so great. Check out more below!
