    I never give out personal information. I did give out a referral to one of the callers though and the name I gave was a bar number downtown (real dive). The name to ask for was John Bidet. LOL.

    thanks, I don't think there is anything they won't scam. The same guy that always calls got my Dh last week and got the same NO as I give him.but when I block that number he just uses another one. he now has it so the number doesn't show up now so it can't be blocked. I wish my phone would block more than 20 calls at a time.Also if you get a call about money for the state troopers it's a scam. They troopers don't called evey week and also they aren't rude and won't take no as a answer. also I have traced it to someplace up in NYC but then it could be anywhere since they can get numbers to look like there.My DH told him we are in Kansas and we just gave what is this about? The just still carried on his spiel. Pushy aren't they?

    THIS WAS NOT A TELEMARKETER. This was a THIEF! Thank you for posting. Spread the word. I hate it, when older folks are targeted for their hard earned money.

    LOVE your response, reginalovesfabric. Reminded me of my grandmother...when she received calls like that she'd warn them once. The next time she'd blow a whistle in their ear as loud as possible. She didn't get any other calls from them then! She also never had to worry about solicitors or burglars...had a sign posted on her garage 'I don't shoot to kill, but I WILL make a hen out of a rooster!'. Everyone in town knew of the sign and stayed away....

    Your grandmother is a lady after my own heart. Someone called and would not take not from my husband, he handed me the phone and they keep talking, I finally when they took a breat asked "what part of NO don'tyou understand. Now we tell them my husband has CA and we need a donation from them, they back off and called don't keep happening UNLESS it is a darn computer calling, them I hang up on.

    I got a call like that. Normally I let all calls go on machine but was waiting for a call back from soneone so picked it up. I don't waste my time listening to these people I just hang up on them.

    Had that call and when I said I didn't think the information they wanted was needed they hung up. Called Medicare and they said they had so many of these that thy couldn't bother to investigate.

    Rule of thumb, if you didn't make the call give NO information, not even your name or location, tell them it is none of their business and you will call them if you want something.
