Talking to these people is a waste of time.  Asking to be removed from their list is a waste of time.  These folks are already breaking the law, so they are not interested in your wishes.


I believe if they suspect I'm on to them, they aren't going to waste their time on me. I did expect at least a little resistance.  They called twice yesterday. They haven't called back today since our little talk.

They only call so many times, because there are so many people to call.  If you don't talk to them, meaning that you don't answer the phone -- they still go away.  And if you get a call the next day, it's very likely a different person, from a different operation in a different location.  There are tons of these people, all using the same methods.  They can't be bothered to think that someone is on to them, because we can't find them -- because they're not shacked up at the local strip mall.

Very few guns are actually "illegal guns."  A gun misappropriated by a criminal is no more of an "illegal gun" than a stolen car is an "illegal car."

     On another note,   IRS, letter of change of address.
This is sent out, to new and old address if you change it.

   So, 2 copies by their website, if they only change something brilliant.   

Correct?

   So, I only received one copy that my address is changed.

  This means, someone, changed it, and filling a fake Tax return, hoping to get back money.

 I heard this is the latest scam. pay attention to change of address forms.   like I have enough issues .

Some times just for s**ts and giggles, when I know the caller is a scam, I answer the phone stating the name of a phony Law Firm. They hang up quick.

My cell phone number has been in the Yellow Pages since 2005, so I get business-to-business telemarketers too... several calls per day at times.
AT&T cell service has a new feature where you can block and report any number with a few taps on the screen. I do it, even though I know reporting them doesn't do much good, just to avoid the next call from that specific number.

I like that. I'll use it.
