  • Tele-marketers

    I just received my 2nd $500 shopping spree phone call of the day.....

    On my CELL PHONE. How did these jokesters get my cell phone number?

    Anyone else get these?

    You needed to register your cell on the "do not call" list too.

        I got calls on my cell as well as home phone. I registered on the list for the home phone. I guess there are a whole bunch of groups that are exempt.

          There is also a gov't no call list for cell phones, look into it! I think the only people who can call your home phone without getting into trouble are charities and businesses you deal with. I have been getting all sorts of calls at home, seems like they are not afraid of violating the no call list.

              I don't hang up on them, playing with their emotions is too much fun. I had someone call and I pretended like I just got shot. I was screaming and the whole nine. The lady was freaking out.

                I registered my cellphone AND home phone and I still get tons of calls. Lately I just tell them that, "these types of calls are not welcome!" and I hang up...works every time.

                  Look on youtube for Tom Mabe, his calls like that are hilarious.

                    I just give them about 30 seconds of WOUSSKO going ARRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooo and hang up. They don't call back as they can't stand his howling.

                    On this YouTube video Kaiser the husky sounds off about Tele-Marketers.
                    The first 1:15 is the telemarketer trying to sell him junk. He finally gets mad and tells off the telemarketer. By 2:20 Kaiser is really telling them off.

                        I am on the do not call list but I still get a lot of rug cleaning co.'s and contractors. I tell them to come over and give them a bogus address. If enough people would do this then maybe they would get the point.
