Good idea! I am going to have to try this one.

I suggest the following actions for the best way to be removed from these asshat's listings...

1. Add to the beginning of your voicemail outgoing message a SIT (Special Information Tone) like this one (http://www.yourhomenow.com/sound/sit-tone.wav). This is a tone which indicates to automated phone equipment (like their dialers) that a number is no longer in service. Add your normal message following the tone, human callers will not react as fast as the dialers and hear the remainder of your message.
2. DO NOT ANSWER any number you do not explicitly recognize for a period of at least one month, push to VM those you do not recognize. One month would then cause the system to drop you from their lists as a disconnected number.
3. Blacklist all #'s that refuse to leave a message, it is them.
4. Rejoice in 31 days as they will have given up and the 3 a day calls will cease.

It's worked for me, it'll work for you too.

Default US Pharmacy, same problem...

I am having the same problem as you. 3 calls a day, every day for the past 2 months I have been getting calls from these guys. I am going to try and waste their time by repeatedly telling the to hang on while I get my credit card. It may take a while, but I think eventually they might stop calling me.

Yours truly,
Dave

I receive about 2 a day on and off all week, every week. for about 3 years now. I finally come to realize telling them to take me off the call list does nothing so I decided to have some fun with them while they are on the phone, I tell them the offer sounds good, and send me 100 of each, both pills, but when they ask what Mil. pills i say 5oo mil., That I wanna keep it up all night because I wanna be a circus ride. This usually pisses them off to the point they start using the limited English Cuss words and such, LOL I am going to buy a Air Horn and Blow it in the Phone eventually when they call, maybe that will get them to stop.
