Ok 1-816-659-1194, STOP Harassing Me NOW!!

 

I don’t know who you are, nor do I give a hoot!

 

But I want you to stop harassing me.

 

NOW!!!

 

You're driving me crazyI’ve had enough. 12 calls in 3 days and I suspect you’re not finished.

 

I didn’t answer your first call on my cell because I didn’t recognize the area code. Good thing. You’ve never left a message…no surprise…and I have no desire to find out more.

 

Nor am I going to give you whatever measly satisfaction you might get out of actually picking up the call or letting you know this is a real number.

 

I don’t know if you are a “real” person on the other end or some stupid automated broadcast message, but I hate you nonetheless.

 

Oh, yes, I’ve googled you to find out if you are what I suspected…a major annoyance to lots of people. Perhaps you get some perverse satisfaction from that.

 

And I have reported you, although I doubt it will do any good. But at least I feel I’m doing what I can.

 

And calling you out, 1-816-659-1194, probably won’t have an impact either, but at least I get the satisfaction of letting others know, plus I get 225 points for it which has far more value than whatever it is you are associated with or whoever you are.

 

I did some research, and hopefully the Call Blocker app for Android will do the trick and keep your sorry a$$ away from me.

 

Oh, you may start using another number but I’ll just add you to the blacklist.

well, i think, i can give you even a better story:

this morning( funny that i've noticed your blog after this occurred) I received a message asking if I am I. I.. I answered who is asking?

So, here we go: i got many texts explaining that this persons know me well and he/she decided 'to take pity on me' betraying his job and that if i'll tell police, I'll be sorry.

Good morning me......yuuck!

Jeff, Not much fun to have that continual harassment.  Anyone who won't leave a message is rarely a viable client, nor do we care for that way of doing business if they're a business trying to get us to sign up.

Inna - yep that's far worse. There are some freaky people out there on the Internet and using technology.

Benjamin - - and I can easily add several numbers already. Hope it works. I don;t know if there are stats so you can see calls being blocked.

BLIZ - I hate broadcast voicemails, in general, but that's my opinion. I hardly EVER get an an unanswered call from a client or prospect and there is no message, so I am pretty comfortable with not worrying. And the dead give-a-way is when the phone only rings 3 times. For sure that's a telemarketer OR an autocall.

Jeff I do the same thing.  If it is from out of state and I don't recognize the number, I don't answer.  If it is someone that really wants to talk to me they will leave a message and I will call them right back.  If they don't leave a message, then it is not worth picking up no matter how many times they call. 

And yes the 225 points does make up for a little bit of the frustration ........... LOL

I wonder if there is one of those apps for the iPhone.  I doubt it will do much good because those numbers change.  You can't remove yourself either.  They hang up on you.  I am off to see if I can find that app.

George - it seems that there are more and more of these calls all the time.

Jane - there is, I saw it. Yep, you're right. I'll just keep adding numbers as I need to. It is probably a minimal solution. Too bad our phones can't yet detect broadcast types of calls.

Jeff, I've gotten these calls too. I just save them to my phone as "Do Not Answer", and from there it's easy to just let it go. Strange thing happened though. Once I do that, I never get a call again. It's as if the number knows......

Hey, I'll be down to SD next week. We've heard nice things about Carlsbad (gee, I wonder where), so will probably take a little jaunt over and check it out.

Don't you just hate it!  And the Do Not Call List does not seem to work at all.
