Im getting Robocalled!

So I got a credit check, and soon after it appears

1. my toner is low,
2. I won a trip to mexico
3. I can save insurance
4. Life line Senior emergency medical paging device?

It starts at 8am every day, usually 3 calls a day!

Some KID from India called and said my PC has "Wiruises" and he wanted my social security number to verify Microsoft support!



I have installed a hardware modem call blocker but it can block good calls.

Is this the time to cancel my ATT and T phone?

I bought a new home and now I may suffer from low testosterone.

I actually love to play games with these type of people when I have the time. I got a generic call about my car's warranty being up about 3x a month. I finally decided to talk to someone. I said my car was in fact not under warranty and that I am interested in a new one. They asked me what the year model and make was. I told them it was a 1971 Jaguar XJ6 with 99,000 miles. They told me that I wasn't eligible. I started making my plea about how they said I was likely eligible to where they actually hung up on me. I told them about how it was a financial burden and I just need some help. Never called again...success.

Yep. but the callers are 100% scammers, and always from weird countries on SKype.

Just got a Incoming Call Blocker for $50 on ebay that has some 15,000 pre programmed spammer numbers.

And yes this happened after dish network credit check,

The "fine print" sold your phone number.

I always ask for their names and phone numbers so I can call them right back as I've got another call coming in... and then I state: "I mean your home phone number. I want to talk to you at your home, when you're finished work for the day, or before you start."

Meh - I've been getting my last chance call to lower my interest rate on my credit card (no company mentioned) and pushing #2 to remove you from the list just makes it call more often.

I am also eligible for a free glucose blood tester if I were a senior citizen.

My home is being stalked by burglars as we speak unless I press 1 to talk to a home security consultant and get a FREE home alarm now ( Imprime dos por EspaƱol.)

Gov't deregulation entitles me to cut my electric bill in half.

Those are just the robots that work, more than three quarters of them blow up and just disconnect me, probably because the hampster running the generator just had a heart attack and died.


This is life, in a country where the going wage is five dollars a day, even one sale a day by each agent is probably a break even point, regardless of how many people hangup on the tireless robotcaller.
