Sadly they keep calling back.... The best way is to make them think they have the wrong number..... Answer and say "Thank you for calling taco bell,PAT may I help you??"

It usually works Suzy

Default Mad about the calls

I have about had it with these people calling, don't get it at all, not only are they wasting my time but there's. I went as far as blocking there number and they just call on another number. You would think there would be something we could do.

What you can do is to convince them that you have a 0% chance (or less) of buying whatever they are selling. Refer to my past posts. So far, none of the companies I mentioned the thread have called back. Not once. It seems that not even a telemarketer would try to sell car insurance to someone who has killed multiple kits in a vehicular homicide incident. Go figure.

I get these calls all the time on my cell phone. I try blocking the numbers but they always come up with another. So my caller ID says where the call is from and I just ignore any strange numbers.

This is what has absolutely worked for me, every time I get a call from a number I don't recognize, I answer it and put it on mute. They will say hello a few times, then hang up.
You can tell by their accent and background noise that its them.
I then place a block on that number. It took about a month but I have successfully blocked all the numbers they call from. The calls have completely stopped.

Welcome to city-data

The problem with BLOCKING THE #s is they usually call with ALL KINDS OF #s (None of them real) -- Its very hard to block them..... THEY ARE QUITE INTRUSIVE!!

That does not matter to these "dopes".

What worked for me is to stop answering the phone if I do not recognize the number.

I have a number for them 1-855-355-8227 also he gave me extension 134. Call it as many times as you like and give them a taste of what we have been getting. I also placed an order with a fake credit card and address for a large quantity of meds. That really got them going they kept calling and I told them I made the card up they still were trying to sell me meds how dumb it actually was hilarious and I just played along. Please call the number it is them. After 3 years of taking it from them time to give back. I got it by saying I could never order from someone that doesn't have a working phone number.
