I hate telemarketers

I hate telemarketers.... I just got off the phone with a telemarketer who asked for me by name and then asked if I was looking for a loan. I was very polite and said that I was not and almost immediately he let out with "F#%k off motherf#%%er" I said excuse me and he repeated it and went on calling me ***** and all sorts of other obscenities.
Guess that's what I get for answering a call listed as unknown caller.

I picked up a trashy romance novel at Goodwill for 50 cents, bookmarked a very flowery paragraph, and keep it by the phone. You'd be surprised how quickly they hang up when I read about turgid members and throbbing things in a voice that's a mix of the Love Doctor and Dracula.

I've said things that would make a porn star puke. I've tried being polite. I've been firm. I've begged to be removed from the list. I've reported the numbers online and by snail mail, along with time and dates.

The best therapy I've found, keep a metal coach/police whistle by the phone.

I just say "nonsecure line" when I answer, then wait as if they are suppose to respond.

Then, no matter what thy say, I ask "How did you get this number?"

Then, no matter what they say, go back to "nonsecure line" and pause again. No matter what they say, keep repeating those two statements.

Usually they give up by the third time around. Occasionally they will call back a minute later, one time, then hang up after the first "nonsecure line." One guy made it through 5 repeats.

Unfortunately it doesn't work on the new automated scam calls that pretend to be Bank of America and asking you to enter your card number and pin to continue. But for any type of call with a live person on the other end, it makes them stop.

Use a ringback tone saying their number and location has been established, and the call being recorded.

I am 64 and have a very deep voice. I usually say "My Mommy's not home right now." They usually hang up.

Reminds me of this company that calls over and over with the same recorded message. Although there were no profanities used, they're harassing me with calls. I have asked repeatedly to be removed from their list, and as of today I've received ANOTHER call, this time on my cell phone. It's absolutely maddening.

I've filed complaints already but it looks like there weren't any progress. I've reported the calls to [url]http://www.callercenter.com[/url] in an attempt to raise my concern to proper authorities.

Maybe it really was a telemarketer that was on his off time doing what he really wanted to do when he was working.

Seems like it might be a fun way to unwind after a whole day of trying to sell people things they don't want.

Pop a beer and make a few more calls...................

Can you try and call your phone company? they might be able to get the number and block it.

Wool Hoooo A nice man from Nigeria sent me this E Mail today. He wants to give me $7,200,000.00........

Joe Amendola & Associates Dearest, Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, I am aware that this is certainly not a conventional way of approach to establish a relationship of trust, I am Joe Amendola, I am the Personal Attorney to Engr. Ronald Reagan. Who used to work with Agip Oil Company in Nigeria as a foreign expert. On the 21st of May 2007, he and his wife including their three children were involved in a car accident along Port Harcourt rivers Express way. Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several inquiries to his Embassy to locate any of my client’s relatives, which has also proved unsuccessful. After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client in a Bank. Fortunately, the Finance House (BANK) where the deceased deposited the US$18 Million (Eghteen Million United States Dollars only) knows me very well and has ask me to present some one to claim the fund left by my late client as they all know I am his attorney.Consequently, the Bank has issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$18 Million (Eghteen Million United States Dollars only) in their custody with in the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over the years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to him so that the fund will be transferred to your account by the Bank. Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for you. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we may make with the Bank. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.Please get in touch with me through my alternative email address :() for further details. Yours Sincerely. Joe Amendola Esq).

I tell them that I realize they are trying to make an honest buck, but I'm not interested; then wish them luck. The key is to deliver this without allowing them to respond - then hang up. Cheers.

Marketer calls while I'm eating dinner and watching the news. I politely say "no thank you have a nice evening" and he just keeps on talking. Ok, let's have a little fun. I put him on speakerphone and he keeps right on talking. Every few minutes while still enjoying my dinner while watching the news, I blurt out "uh-huh", or "yes" and finally, after 15 minutes, he hangs up. I figure I saved several other families from being rudely interrupted during dinner. Besides, when someone says to you "no thank you" don't keep talking right over them, HANG THE ******* UP!
