They're driving me nuts! These computer generated calls originate (maybe?) from
515-369-5930 showing the name "Health Care," 978-570-2221 showing "United Sch," and and 562-289-8151 showing the name "Health Assoc" --all three want to sale health insurance! If you listen to the message it will say press 1 for an representative/operator or 9 to opt out of their database. It doesn't matter what you press, 9 or even 1 and demand the calls cease, the calls never stop! I mean, geez, I DON"T WANT anything from them, but they keep calling and calling. I certainly wouldn't buy anything, let alone healthcare, from a computer-generate sales pitch!

Anybody else being harrassed by these morons or know of some secret code to actually get them to stop calling?!?!

Default Talk to a representative next time

and have some fun!

It's like this: I'm currently on parole after serving a 40 year sentence for killing an insurance agent that came to my door one day. On top of that, I have AIDS (which I contracted in prison), I smoke 6 packs of cigarettes every day, I take crack every opportunity I get and I have set the house on fire a half-dozen times from falling asleep with a cigarette in my hand and, thank God, my 4 pit-bulls survived each and every time.

And I'm sure you can come up with even more creative stories. Go for it!

If Tijilover's suggestion doesn't work you might try this?

Are you on the 'do not call list'? IIRC if you were on the list previously you had to re-register recently. I haven't gotten any of those calls but I also re-registered. If you told them to quit calling and they continue tell them you are going to report them if they continue to call. There is a place to report them.
