Help me fight them.
    #4332783 - 06/24/05 04:31 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Oh my god. I got home from the gathering late last night/this morning and found that I had almost 20 messages on my machine. Upon listening to them, I found that most were from telemarketers.

I just received another phone call less then 10 minutes ago. Yet another person trying to sell me something. The most annoying part is that most of these sales pitches are pre-recorded, so that even if I wanted to go off on some of these people I couldn't.

How can I stop the madness???!!!

Sign up for the do-not-call list.

All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Pre-recorded messages on your answering machine? That breaks both of the two most major laws about telemarketing. You can sue them for about $500 and infraction. Seriously, do it:

You know the best way to get on there do not call list.
Stay on the line with them as long as possible. Don't talk shit, just fuck with them. Keep changing the subject to something uncomfortable.

Tell them if they phone sex you, you will buy whatever they are selling. Then hang up afterwords.

Ditto on the Do Not Call Registry!  Additionally, between the hours of 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., I answer the phone in Spanish.  My friends just laugh, but the telemarketers will repeat "hello?" a few times, then hang up.  Very effective!  I also don't get any local fund-raising calls anymore!!  :grin:

one time i anwsered the phone with a caribbean accent and the lady that called had one too. she was calling about giving me a credit card which i actually wanted so i ended up on the phone having to fake this accent for 45mins so as too not look like i was mocking her. she asked where i was born and i said detroit and she was like uh, ok. :smile: best way to get rid of telemarketers is get rid of your land line and get a cell phone. the prices are pretty similar nowadays.
