Does anybody on here get non stop phone solicitors?

I bet you I get at least 25 a day. Last lady that called wanted to verify that she was calling my body shop. I told her that she should know who she called. She said that she needed 10 minutes of my time. I asked her if I could call her on her lunch break. She asked if there was a better time to call, I replied never.

Vent over, LOL

They call my business phone all the time. Google calls 2 or 3 times a day. I told them to stop but still kept calling. I finally started talking to them would make up outlandish persona and stories to fit whatever they were selling. Usually after about 5 minutes of my rambling nonsense about government conspiracy an needing dental insurance due to a meth problem they never call back..

Ryan best phone I bought I had no idea had a # block feature. However as soon as I figured out it was there, I blocked those nasty persistent solicitations. I would say 2-3 x a day at supper the phone rings once and then stops and I smile to my self knowing the buggers have been blocked yet again!!
I used to feel your pain but not anymore.

Dial-1-888-382-1222---Follow the instructions. Nation wide do not list. Will curb some of them. Not the ones you have a account with. Takes 30 days to get in the system, and should be done once a year to stay on the list. If your on the list its against the law for telemarkets to call. I do it with my cell phone also.

I got on the do not call list years ago and it helped greatly. I use to get 8 to 10 call a day. What a waste of time. It stopped. Now years later I still get a few calls but not many. I think it is time to call again.

I have a panasonic phone with call block. The problem is you can only block 25 numbers.

The national do not call registry is a joke. I have added my business number to that list many times and it does no good. It might help for a personal phone line, but did not seem to do anything for a business line.

I do not get any calls since I unlisted my number and put the few who got through on the Do Not Call List. However, the law does not apply to business numbers.

I just let unknown numbers go to answering machine. When they hear my message they never call back!
Message as follows: Hi welcome to Obama care hotline Press 1 to disconnect in English Press 2 to disconnect in Spanish Press 3 to disconnect in any other language.

I wish that the "Do Not Call List", worked! I've received calls now for 40 days in a row, from a scam named "Card Services".... (what it reads on the Caller ID)

And yes, I am on the "Do Not Call List"... But, it doesn't do any good...

Our Representative to the US House; routinely puts in Her "news letters" that scammers are not following the "Do Not Call List" regulations and there is nothing the DOJ can do about it...

Been getting some tollfree hard to report,when I don't see the number. After 4 rings it goes to fax and gives them a ear full of noise.Mine is unlisted also. Quess they have a system to just dial numbers out of the sky.
