Like many of you, I am also on the DNC registry. They do not care.....rinse and repeat...THEY DO NOT CARE! They are using dirty leads that have not been scrubbed of DNC's and other challenges to telesales people. They are NOT the devil. Probably just a college kid or retiree trying to make a few bucks. If the response time is slow, it's because they are using an auto-dialer and a VOip system. They are required by law to disposition as a DNC if you tell them not to call again. Most of these companies are actually selling a legit product. Please just say no thank you and don't be rude to a kid who's just trying to pay his rent so he can some day afford to hang a sign on his door. Ya'll have a great day!

Got a recorded message from this number today. Apparently, the IRS has a "lawsuit" against me based upon my "social files." Absolutely a scam. I called the 202 number, and left a message that this was NOT a government number and knew that this was a scam. Wonder if I'll get additional calls. The IRS would NEVER contact anyone by phone or email regarding a lawsuit or claim.
