Telemarketing no more.

I’m not very happy, bordering on pissed off.

When we got phone calls to reduce our credit card interest rate to 0%, I tried to get as much information as possible to make an informed decision.

Granted I may have asked too many questions and the calls might have been 20-30 minutes, but we are now black listed.

They don’t call anymore :frowning: .

This is overt discrimination.

We still get some calls, maybe once a month, but as soon as I start submitting to their questions they hang up the phone.

Not fair!

Don’t get me started on internet pop ups warning of hackers and viruses on our computer.
The ‘Microsoft’ offices in India and Pakistan won’t help us scan our computers anymore.

And we cannot get our furnace vents cleaned any more either.

I have $8,000 in iTunes gift cards ready to release to our government income tax revenue department, they also do not call anymore. :’(

I admire your commitment.

I would just hang up after 10 seconds.

The self - proclaimed Microsoft service guys harrassed me for years.

I tried different strategies to annoy them enough to stop calling me. Nothing worked.

At last, I told them that I had no computer. The guy kept asking " how can that be, you have no computer ... "

I told him that I use a pocket calculator for everything.

He obviously was aware that I was pulling his leg and became furious. He shouted " Sir, take that calculator and shove it up your a** !" and hung up.

No more calls from "Microsoft" since then. So sad !!

I sense that you're a bit testy right now but, could you maybe, possibly, see your way to publishing your list of questions?

Asking for a friend. :slight_smile:

we get calls from machines now, so you can’t even talk back... it’s just a recording.

Unbelievably funny! I had to watch several. My calls are usually recordings and I just punch the phone buttons, usually starting with zero. Sometimes I will get a transfer to another number that take up to 5 minutes for a real person to answer. Sometimes I ask if they like robo calls, other times, i don’t say anything and eventually they get tired and hang up.

Someone just sent me an email claiming they hacked into my emails and stole all my nudie pics and will be sharing them with anyone who will watch unless I send him $1000 via bitcoin..

I’m sorta touched that he thinks my nudes are worth that much...

They only wanted $495 for mine.. :o :o :frowning: :frowning:

Well, there is probably more of me to see.

Mine were only topless...

I’m back on the list :slight_smile:

Spent 13 minutes on the phone with them today.

When I said I was 93 years old (okay that was a lie :frowning: ) they got excited and began to salivate.

At the end of the call they accused “me” of wasting their time but did say “have a good day”.

Maybe tomorrow :slight_smile:

PS
And reducing my interest rate to 0% was only going to cost me a one time payment of $3497.45.

They would put this on my credit card so I wouldn’t have to pay interest on it.

$495 or they send the SWAT team?
