LOL... had the paper been available online at the time, I probably would have. As it was, I needed to keep on top of the important things: my sports teams. wink.gif

When I finally did let the subscription lapse, I got all kinds of junk calls and mail about it - it let up after I moved to a new apt., so it all ended well, anyway.

Now I just screen all calls that come in - if it's someone who needs to talk to me, they have the sense to start talking into the machine, giving me an opportunity to pick up.

When I was getting junk calls, the most irritating though were those that had nobody on the line when you picked up the phone. Used to get several of those ever evening. They stopped when our no call law went into effect.
- High Plains Drifter


That's because the majority of telemarketers calls are made automatically by a computer. If you answer and the computer has dialed but there is not an actual person to bug you, you get the silence. Their computers are actually dialing and making connections too fast for the workers to keep up.
As far as stopping the calls, the no-call lists are an excellent way. If you are able to, getting your number UN-listed also works. Other than the no-call list, another great way to stop the calls is to put a fraud alert your credit through the three major credit bureaus. This also stops all junk mail, including the pre=approved credit cards that everyone gets in the mail at least 3 to 4 times a week. Those are some of the most dangerous pieces of mail that is sent out due to the fact that they are tailor-made for Identity Theft. If anyone is interested in knowing more, just ask. I can either post it in another forum or you can e-mail me. biggrin.gif

Ranger,

I hate to tell you this, but an UN-list phone number does not stop computer generated Telemarketer calls. The computer kicks out your prefix number and starts at 0000 and runs through 9999.

I used to be unlisted and I still got call, when I asked them how they got my number they would tell me the computer dialed it that they no idea who they was talking to.

Like you I have the address and 1-800 numbers to stop the pre-approved credit cards, mortgage companies and other financial companies along with Telemarketer calls.

I didn't say that the un-listed number would stop them, but it helps because your number is now off of the national list.
If you have a fraud alert than that's great. If you don't, I suggest getting it. Everyone should. The post was for those that don't or have questions about it. I investigate identity Theft for a living and you would be suprised at the amount of people who are totally clueless as to the steps you can take to prevent identity theft and how easy it is to become a victim.

Annabelle, You sound like my Eagle Clan Mother. If someone says something she does like, she says "Just Shoot Them". I laugh at her too. But I don't know if the both of you are kidding or serious. gunsmilie.gif

hey this whole horn idea is great--my previous policy was to attack my phone with a ball peen hammer, which is probably why no one calls me anymore.
