I think I’m going to start unplugging our phone during the day. Seriously … sometimes our phone rings 10 or 15 times a day and rarely is it a call from someone I know.
Nope … 99% of the calls we get during the day and in the early evening are from what I’ve started to call telephone scammers. It’s come to the point where if I don’t recognize a number a I don’t answer the phone. I also check the number on the internet and I find most of the numbers that I check listed on complaint boards stating that such and such a number is from a company that says it can lower your credit card interest rates, or extend your cars warranty or even some type of insurance marketing.
We listed our number of the Canadian do not call list, but the thing is most of these calls aren’t coming from within Canada – they’re coming from the US or even the Philippines. So the do not call list doesn’t apply to them. Grrrr.
Don’t you just hate telephone scammers?
