Telemarketers, DON"T CALL ME! I will report you!

The telephone rings, I stop what I'm doing and run to get the phone before it stops ringing. This is what happens more often then not, because I don't walk around holding a phone. When I answer the phone, I get really annoyed when it is a telemarketer call.


Lately it seems like everyone is calling for money AND they are not legitimate. It's all a scam. Don't give money over the telephone - EVER!

I've gotten so tired of the many phone calls, that I have finally found a way to stop them. REALLY!

Since I DO belong to the no call list, I say: "Why are you calling me? I am on the no call list. You will be hearing from my lawyer and will be receiving a bill for $3000. Please stop calling me and take me off of your list." CLICK! I don't listen to them at all, I just say my speech when I figure out they are a telemarketer or scamming charity.

THEN I actually go to the website for the NO CALL LIST and file a complaint on every phone number that calls me that is spam or a telemarketer. If the person that is calling me is someone that I do business with "like a bank", I always ask to be taken off the call list. (No, I don't want another credit card, No I don't want insurance blah, blah blah)

This statement has a trickle down effect, because I am not receiving those pesky telephone calls anymore.

Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about it at

Aaaaaaahhh the sweet sound of silence OR a friend on the other end of the line. SaWEET!

This has been a huge annoyance to me lately! My favorite is when they claim to have never heard of the DNC list!!! I didn't know how to go about filing a complaint though, so thanks for that information~ I'm gonna be puttin' it to some good use.

LOL - They never pronounce our name right so I just say no one by THAT name lives here - automatically off the list! We are on the no call list too though.
