I don't know because I always hang up before they can finish telling me whatever the hell they are trying to. I tend to not listen to any of them.

me neither...i also hate it when the bank calls and asks to speak to my husband..i always say well we share the same account and whatever you have to say to him you might as well tell me because he wont talk on the phone unless its important!!

lol..i used to get calls from credit cardcompanies saying that i was pre approved and everything..i kept telling them i didnt want one then one day they just got on my nerves and i said ok give me your credit card but dont expect me to pay it back because i dont have a job,,they never called back again!! lol

BTW..beware there is a scam going on in the U.S and Canada, this person will call you saying that your computer needs fixing because you are sending or receiving a bunch of viruses and other crap..they will ask you to turn on your computer and want you to give them access to it..dont..if you see this # tell them to go "f" themselves!! # is 510-943-3040..its a california phone #..they called me today (and since i have trust issues)when they told me to turn on my computer i got suspicious and said turn on my computer, i'm not turning on my computer..no way and hung up...google the number, i did..there are alot of complaints! and this isnt their only scam!!!!!

My dad got one that (I think started as an e-mail). He was asked to process some cashier's checks. He got the cashier's checks and immediately checked with the US Post Office and they verified they were bogus. He gave them these falsified cashier's checks. I think we've gotten scam telemarketers on the phone, but it's been awhile. He stops answering any number with 8xx anymore.

I told my gramma to also not answer 800 numbers...and if its an automated machine to just hang up. I hate those things. And its said that people fall for it. Like *BlueIvyViolet, I also have trust issues and I can be really mean to those people with their crap scams.

They're fun to play with sometimes. My dad used to play headgames with them, but even he no longer bothers with them.

Yah. I've done that too...I will try out an Irish accent or Indian. Just whatever comes to mind. I say I don't know who they are asking for...but I don't bother anymore. They just keep calling.

yeah, me too. I did get a few on the dating site. The most memorable one was a lady who claimed to be from Russia and she sent pix of herself, claiming she was interested in me. I played along until she started asking for money. I looked online and found who she really was. She was from somewhere in the former Soviet Union, but I suspect she's married already and just scamming lonely guys out of their money, claiming she wants to be with them. Some were stupid enough to send money to her, never to hear from her again. I finally blocked her. I even told her in an e-mail that I found her out. She was rather persistent lol
