Although I am on (2) do not call lists I continue to get calls of this type. Congress should raise the fines and start to prosecute the owners of this type of business.
A woman claiming to be from the IRS & that legal action was going to be taken against me if I didn't call them back. It is a total scam!
Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 240-754-2987 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number.
Woohoo, I finally figured out a way to stop this persistent caller using multiple phone numbers (which actually helped me to find the solution). Call 866-246-7196 and give the caller's and receiving phone numbers. This phone number is on their list so they added my receiving phone number to the do not call list and the calls stopped within their 1-2 business days processing time.
telemarketer--to be stopped!!
Telemarketing about auto insurance coverage. Asked if you can save money, would you switch companies. It seemed weird since they were calling a business rather than residential number.
Robo calls from some company trying to sell Home Security.
Message ask to log on to my carries website in which I had a credit. SCRAM
I just got a call from 240-252-4879. The fool on the other end claimed to be from Microsoft Windows. I knew right away this was a bull shit call so I played along. He tried to tell that MS Windows (which BTW is an operating system not a business name or a call center) has detected malware on my hard drive and he was calling to offer me free assistance to remove it. I fucking hate assholes who try to play on my (so called) fears, greed or whatever.After he said he needed me to be in front of my computer so he can guide me so I can let him into my computer I said to him, "Well you're going to have to wait until I buy a computer then because I don't own a computer. ". He said, "You don't have a computer?" I said. "No there is not one computer in this house and if this was not a scam call you would have known that. I love messing with these idiots. LMAO
