New Weapons To Fight Telemarketing Calls Coming?

Apparently the honchos at the Federal Communications Commission have been so deluged with complaints from consumers about telemarketing calls that they finally decided to do something about it. I will remain skeptical until I see some good come out of this new development but it looks like it may be a step in the right […]

What Happened To The ‘Do Not Call’ List?

I recall back around 2005 when I was working for a company that was involved in sales. There was no telemarketing involved but we did have to call a potential client once in a while when they called the office after hours and left a message. It was drilled into our heads that we had […]

Automated Millionaires Marketing System Phone Spam

There are thousands of scam artists with thousands – if not millions – of websites out there promoting various “systems” that they claim will make you rich. I normally don’t seek these websites out to write about them here, but when someone calls and leaves a message on my voicemail promoting a get-rich-quick scheme, I’m […]

Voicemail Spammers Gone Wild

I’m not sure what to call this brand of annoying idiots other than “voicemail spammers.” I’m not a big cell phone user, so most of the time my phone is shut off and sitting on the shelf which causes the vast majority of calls that come in to go to voicemail. Friend and family have […]

Spammers Push Anti-Virus Software via Skype Calls

This one is breaking new ground in the world of telemarketing. Or should I call it spam? I’m a bit uncertain about this one since it is a voice message that’s delivered to unlucky users of the popular Skype voice/video messaging service. Any internet user who has received their share of spam has probably seen […] Idiots Call From 206-888-2303

Perhaps regular old spam just isn’t working as well as it once did. I recently heard about a Russian mega-spammer getting arrested, so maybe it is becoming harder for shysters like the ones behind to find professional spammers to do their bidding. Well, never fear scammers and shysters! We’ve still got the trusty old […]

‘Kings of Irritation’ Call From 202-747-3647

Telemarketing calls to my home phone are bad enough, but when idiots start calling my cell phone and leaving pre-recorded messages for their stupid get-rich-quick “systems” on my voicemail, that takes the irritation to a whole new level. They call themselves the “Kings of Automation,” and if their website is any indication, it’s just another […]

Integrity Financial Partners Barking Up The Wrong Tree (866-951-8055)

Ever since I decided to get my own cell phone and give the one that we shared to my wife for her exclusive use, I’ve been getting strange calls. Actually, they all end up being strange voicemail messages, since I very rarely use my cell phone. and it spends the vast majority of its time […]

Another One: 561-962-0988 – FBK Products

Well, it seems as if the telephone is getting a bit busier these days. Hey, maybe it’s a sign that the economy is picking up and these obnoxious telemarketers are a barometer! They’ve got to pay these rude morons something, after all. It was my business line that rang this time, and as a result, […]

‘Opinion Dynamics’ Ignoramus Calls My Home

For quite a while now, it’s been very quiet on the telemarketing front at our home. It looks like that period may be coming to an end. I realize that someone calling to do a survey is exempt from the ‘Do Not Call’ regulations, but that does not mean I want to talk to those […]
