Caller ID showed CHILDERN CANCE[R]
I picked up the receiver (WHY I DON'T KNOW!) and no one was there. They call approx. once a week. Usually, I look at the Caller ID and do not answer. Don't know why I answered this time. But, I think I will answer next time and tell them I am interested in everything they have to say because no one ever calls me and I so need someone to listen to..That I just like to hear another person's voice. Please keep talking and I will just listen to everything they have to say. Then just lay the phone down and every once in a while pick it up and say "REALLY?" Then lay it back down. Then next say, "I'm listening." and lay it back down.
Just let them talk their voise away and maybe they will get the message that calling my number just waste their valuable time trying to scam other people. And maybe they will stop calling me!!!!
When I do get a telephone scammer , and you can tell they are after only money, I tell them that I do not support/respond to charitable organizations over the phone.
In fact when any stranger calls and starts asking for ANY INFORMATION over the phone I explain that I do not know who they are (even if they say they are somebody worth listening to, they could be lying) and I will not give out ANY INFORMATION over the phone.
They usually go away.
It's sad to live in this invironment today. Use to be able to trust most everybody. We have so many liers now.
Now, hope you have a good day, and just don't give liers another minute of your life. ;)
