These callers spew the gassy green runs thru the phone lines. I can only hope they experience these same obnoxious life interrupting calls when they are old and disabled.

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.

A message was left in my voice mail: "This is an important message for the business owner. Due to recent changes in Google maps, we are required to inform you that unless the business owner reviews and confirms info on Google+ business page, will not be able to show it to Google users at the end of the coming month. Please call 979-877-3478 to speak to the tech support person to help you personally." I called the number back, got a robo-voice saying "the person at extension 444 is unavailable, please leave your message after the tone. Sorry but the user's mailbox can't accept any more messages.

Well, trying to look at the bright side, it's good when this caller uses multiple phone numbers because the other phone number they were calling from I was able to get a blog comment that helped to stop both calls.

This number has called several times within the past few days (mid-October 2014); when we answer, there is a dial-tone "response", but the number calls many times in succession. Traced the number back to Alstead, New Hampshire (USA), but with no known address or business associated with it. If they call again and there is no response from their end of the line, I will consider reporting the number to NH police for harassment.
