All right. We have tried everything to stop these yahoos from calling into our business and tying up our lines. Last night I decided to go on the offense and I need everyones help. Go and get a VOIP phone number one that can block incoming calls and call this number as often as possible to tie up their line and make them listen to all the bogus voice mail. I figure at some point we will outnumber them 1000's to one. As we get new nubers we can post them and call those. Most of the time I just ramble about having to pay them money. I talk about having my credit card out and wanting to send money, but I can not get ahold of them. I ask them to call me back asap so I can pay them. I bumble around for as long as possible and them tell them obviously they have my number since they have called me a 1000 times. Sometimes during the day someone will answer and I talk with them as long as possible. I figure if they are talking with me they are not scammeing or harassing someone else...
I received an automated call. Here is what the message basically said (paraphrased):
sarah from political survey groups, you may be frustrated with America's Political State
For participating 30 second survey, receive 2 day cruise from the Bahamas courtesy of one of our supporters
After completing Survey stay on the line to talk with one of our survey specialists. Press 1 now to start the survey
Says he's from the IRS. Sounded like there were other callers in the background; heavy foreign accent. When called back, they answered "IRS." Said I owed $3,700 to the IRS and where was I 6 weeks ago when they tried reaching out to me. "We were out your door; where were you." Started hollaring. Mentioned coming to arrest me in 30 minutes. Still don't know who or what this is about but I'm pretty sure I don't owe the IRS any money.
says his name is Raymond. Says I owe money for IRS and they will hold my bank account, home & send my name to my employee. Says he will accept any kind of money. Whatever I have in my hand cash or Credit card. I let him talk and when I said I am going to call IRS and check on this phone # he gets quiet and hang up the phone on me. Beware!!!!
Called and requested my husband's cell phone number for an urgent situation. Had a HEAVY foreign accent, but told me his name was Bob Jones from the IRS. When I refused to give him the cell number, but offered to take a message he became rude and angry...asking if I was out of my mind.
