    I was awaiting orders from an MD and answered a call from the IRS because my SS# was being suspended.

    I decided to play along

    An IRS agent with a very strong accent answered when I hit # .

    When he finished his spiel I asked him why his mother was committing lewd acts with farm animals.:dv

    The guy lost his mind and started screaming at me in some language I didn't understand.:l

    I haven't received an IRS call since then.

    My neighbor woke up early one morning to discover 2 idiots try to steal his generator.
    He shot out their tire with a .22 and had his wife dial 911 and report it with "shots fired".

    There were 5 state troopers here in 15 minutes and they tracked the idiots down in the snow.
    Without "shots fired" reported it would be weeks before anyone would show up to take a theft report.

    I got two on my cell phone today telling me the law is after me to arrest me. Same voice as the 10 or so previous.

    There's someone somewhere giggling because they know the code.
    Think there isn't a "do not call with bs" registry?
    Try calling Nancy or Chuckie and sell them something.

    I used to phishing calls on my land line. The accent was Indian. I'd stop his spiel in mid-sentence and tell him, "Your ancestors are ashamed of you." I stopped getting calls.

    Had that one about 3 weeks ago. Number came listed as local with some woman's name.

    Yep...they have been coming in several times a day. I’ve had to answer unknown calls to see if it was a home health care nurse calling and it is always been free solar panels if they even start talking.

    Now I just let it go to voice mail. Apparently blocking the numbers doesn’t help because they can “spoof numbers”. This is where they use an identifying number that hides the number they are on.

    Several years ago I got a call from myself. I swear to god!

    The government can’t do anything because most of them are generated overseas.

    IMO

    Three minutes after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone he got a call telling him the warrantee on his carriage had expired. That was also the first phone number in history to be blocked.
