    I've been getting random cell calls from 800 numbers the last week or so, I never answer but putting the numbers into google shows they are coming from India. Fucking dots trying to scam us.

    I have an ancient iPhone3, it doesn't have that feature because it can't utilize OS7 and it's not a static number, looking at the google info there looks like there's hundreds if not 1000's of numbers in the block these fucknuts are using.

    I hear yah, man. Sick and TIRED of these annoying phone calls.

    "John?......hey.....listen, I just tested positive for.....well, you know. I've never been with anyone except you....and now....just....why didn't you tell me? I don't know what to do! *incoherent crying* I'm going to kill myself!"

    Blah blah blah. I just hang up before they get a chance to get me to buy something. What's the world coming to, you know? *sigh*

    I'm a new homeowner so SOMEONE (probably everyone) sold my information to everyone so now I'm dodging junk mail in my mailbox, my email inbox, my home phone, my cell. It's fucking ridiculous.

    I guess one of the 3,000 things to which you concede when a bank gives you a mortgage is their right to sell everything about you to everyone, huh?

    I'm mostly getting calls for home security systems that start off with "The FBI reports..." click.

    Yep had an Indian guy named "Michael" (yeah right) call from a number that was a 917 area code. Tried to tell me that my computer was filled with spyware (obviously knew it was a scam).
    So I asked him which computer it was (he didnt know, just said the main one)then i told him I needed to reboot it and it takes a long time. I held him on the phone for about 5-10 mins waiting. Then I put him on hold for about 3 mins. I picked him back up and told him It was still loading. He was getting mad and told me to use a different computer. So I told him I had 7 of them, which one? He said any of them (in a mad tone), then asked what he needed and he said IP address and I played dumb as he tried to explain where it was. I kept asking him if it was AOL 4.0 or Netscape Navigator and he cursed and hung up. It was hysterical.

    Plus, when I first moved in, I hadn't set up my voicemail so the phone would ring like 20 times (since it was a robo-call) while I was sleeping! :pissed:

    This. I always act really drunk and abusive to some invisible person in the room. They typically hang up, not knowing what to do. My favorite of all time is when "Microsoft" calls you and says you have a virus.

    I have gotten that one as well. :mad:

    Yep, I think I called the number back and asked to be taken off their list. I could be wrong, but try calling the number back and see if you get an option to be removed.
