You know how I stop those telemarketing calls now? I'll answer, push 1 and then 2 to get the live person on the other end because that's usually what they ask you to do anyway, then I'll set the phone down and walk off. Sometimes you can hear them keep saying "Hello? Hello?". I love it. Those calls eventually stopped around here.<quoted text>
He sure did! Talking about a sinking feeling in your gut! LOL And the same guy kept calling back, plumb dang freaky! One time I had some foreign chick calling trying to get credit card numbers out of me. It was probably the same scam they tried on your mom. I had fun with her! LOL I would keep her on the phone forever giving her the run around and fake numbers. LOL She finally got disgusted with me, hung up on me and didn't call back. haaaa There is one scam that has been going on around here for at least a couple years. They call and say they can lower your interest rate. They make out like they are your credit card company but then they end up asking for your credit card numbers. I bet they have called here 20-30 times! I finally quit arguing with them and just started hanging up.
Another good trick is when a web site wants information from you before you can "sign up", give a fake address and an odd version to a common name. Like say, "Vernon". Type in "Vermin" instead. Then when you get a call asking for "Vermin", you know exactly where, who and what happened that they got your number, ROFLMBO!! You can always tell them that "Vermin" passed away about a month ago if you really want to have fun with them...
