Would you please show and demonstrate what you are doing, personally, to fight ALL THIS that you are correct about on most of what you have complained about? OR Is what you say all just TALK? Why don't you prove which it is? You've done the TALK...now, you need to show the WALK or the evidence of what you have personally done to FIGHT against these kinds of CRIMINAL governments.

I wish you all the best on what you say needs to be done!!!

You comment that only the government can go after these scam collection agency callers.
I'm not sure if you were being sarcastic or serious.
The government is not the only one that can go after them. The government only goes after a company or person when it can get really big news headline and praise in the media.
When a collection agency continues to call you , harassing you after you have sent a cease and desist
letter telling them to stop all calls, stop calling you, neighbors, relatives, work, or anyone else.
You have a right under federal law to sue them and they will be required to pay your attorney fee's.
Look up----  FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT.  The federal one.
There is a $ 1,000.00 set by statute for each and every violation.
You can sue even though you are the wrong person. Even though you never owed any debt.
The  FDCPA gives you the right to sue. The government does not care. The do not call list does not apply and would'nt care anyway.

So,   SUE THE SCAMMER  MF'S IN FEDERAL COURT.

Attorney's take these cases on a contingency basis like auto accident cases.
You dont pay anything. They make the collection agency scammers pay.

Blocking their numbers does absolutely NO good what so ever.

They have access to thousands on thousands of numbers to call you from.

I don't know of any phone or phone system available that you can block  thousands of numbers on.

I have tried . I have researched ways to block these scammer companies.
Before anyone comments about me saying collection agency's are scammers.
I do mean they are scammers and criminal companies.

The government has indicted and prosecuted almost all the collection agency's in one form or another.

So, when  a person or company is indicted and prosecuted , that makes you / it a criminal.

Every time you enter one of the contests at the mall to win a car, a trip, etc. Like the poster above said--

you give them and their associated companies permission to call you and send you solicitations by mail.

Since you gave them permission to call you as it's stated in the fine print in the contest rules the Do Not
Call List is void.
You can not stop the calls. Their associate companies can and will call you and you can not stop them.
The do not call list rules say in most states any company you did business with in the past year can contact you for a year after such business took place.

The above poster is correct. STOP using  Facebook all together. Stop entering contests.

Do not return calls to toll free numbers such as,  800, 888, 877, etc. You CAN NOT  block your number from their caller I.D.  Even dialing the  *67 star service that suppose to block your own number from the other persons / company's caller id does not work when you dial the toll free 800 type numbers.

Also when you give your number to a company or credit card company that your in good terms with get's passed on to other companies. Other companies call companies your in good standing with and tell them their SKIP TRACING such and such person. The good company your with tells them anything and everything about you including your new phone number.

My cousin once worked for a small loan company in the late 1990's. My cousin said when they called a company looking for a person, they said they were SKIP TRACING and that company would tell anything and everything they knew about you.  My cousin said it was as though the words  " SKIP TRACING "  were magic words.

So when you change your phone number and give it to one company. You just as well place an ad on some bulletin board along the roadway.

I agree.  Do something.  SUE THE  MF"S in federal court.  Call a consumer attorney and find out what to do .
Complaining on here does no good.
Complaining to the federal do not call list, program does no good.
Complaining to the federal trade commission , FTC , does no good.

Sue them in federal court, it will do some good. Your attorney's fee's will be paid by the collection agency.
You will be paid by the collection agency for each violation. So sue the  MF's.

Spread the word that you can sue them without having to pay an attorney up front, that your attorney
fee's will be paid by the collection agency.


SPREAD  THE  WORD      ---  SUE  THE  SCAMMER AGANCY'S

To: Lone Ranger,

You yourself can rant about the people complaining their on the t call list and such.

Your just as bad ; you can block number after number all day long and it will do absolutely no good !!

These scammers who call people have ten's of thousands of phone numbers they can use. If I'm not
mistaken such numbers are called "vanity" numbers. It does in trying to block these scammers phone numbers. They just roll over to another number , one of thousands. I know it feels good to block each number they call you on but it does no good in the end.

The only way to stop these scammer collection agency companies is-- SEND THEM A CEASE AND DESIST LETTER , telling them to stop calling you, to stop sending you letters, to stop calling your neighbors, to stop calling you at work, to stop calling your relatives, and stop calling anyone else in regards to you.
Make copies of all letters you send the scammers. Send the letter by U.S. Mail , Certified , with RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED; so you will have legal proof you told them to cease and desist ( to stop ) calling
you or anyone else pertaining to you.  If they continue to call you, you now  have proof they were told to stop. You have proof in order to sue them. Attorney's will take these cases on a contigency basis ( no out of pocket money from you ). The collection agency will have to pay your attorney's fee's as well as pay you money for each violation [ each phone call or other violation ]  

Above, in the letter telling them to Cease and Desist Calling you or anyone pertaining to you, reference
--->>  " PER THE FEDERAL FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT "CEASE AND DESIST ALL
           CALLS AND LETTERS OR ANY COMMUNICATIONS TO ME IN WHATEVER FORM "

But telling these people they have the wrong  person, number , etc. does no good. The will continue to call. Blocking the number they are calling from will do no good as they just roll over to another number among thousands they can use.  Being on the do not call list does no good, as the state and federal
do not call list's do not apply to collection agency's.  Making a complaint to the federal trade commission ( FTC ) does no good as they only act when they can get a case that will get big media headlines and such.
The only way is to sue the collection agency. Whether you owe them or not. You can still sue them even if they are calling you by mistake -- after you tell them they have the wrong person and to stop calling and you send them a cease and desist letter by  u.s. mail , certified , return receipt requested.

SUE THEM. MAKE SOME VACATION MONEY OR MONEY TO PAY YOUR CAR OFF. ETC.
Do not rely on the  federal trade commission (FTC) or any other agency. Take your own action in court. Attorney's take these cases with no money up front , same as auto accident cases.

You are a self righteous A**.  I guess you never mad a mistake in your life and have never used an eraser on a pencil.  Get over yourself and stop typing in all caps! YOU ARE YELLING!  The person you replied to stated that they were admitting their mistake but telling about it to warn others.  What purpose did you have other than to make that person feel even worse.   If you want inform people then do it in a helpful way, not through insults and put-downs.  That attitude helps nobody.  Grow up and stop bullying and thinking that you are a gift to the world, because you are NOT!

Telemarketer
This is the worst kind of Telemarketer there is. I want to explain the reason you get a call, and there is no one on the other end.  The company is calling you with a computer system called a robot dialer.
Their tactic is to figure out when you are home to take calls. They record the times when you answer the phone, and determine the best time to have a REAL person call you back. It doesn't matter if you are on a do not call list. The truth is, jobs in this country are scarce. If the FCC went after these dirtbags, more people would loose jobs.
 There is a way to beat them at their game. The robot dialer listens to the way the telephone is answered. When your answering machine picks up , it leaves a message that is a few seconds or more long. When a person answers the telephone you usually say something short like hello.  The robot dialer can tell the difference by length of the audio.
The best way to trick them is to leave a greeting on your answering machine that starts with a short "hello" then a long pause followed by something like "please leave a message"
The short hello will trick the robot dialer into thinking there is a real person on the line, and route you to an operator, or record the time you answered in error.
I would like to encourage people to pass this on to others to educate the public. if enough of us were to trick these people their operators would be busy wasting their time because we tricked their own robot dialers. The telemarketers will become more unproductive, and hopefully remove us from their calling lists.
I do actually have fun listening to confused telemarketers leaving messages on my answering machine, because they were  tricked.  Give it a try. It will only cost THEM time, money and lost productivity.  
PLEASE PASS IT ON !!!!!!!!!  Lets play their game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

A LITTLE EDUCATION FOR YOU FRIEND.

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED  " VOIP " CALLS NOW. VOICE OVER INTERNET PROTOCOL
PHONE CALLS.  WHERE THE COMPANY , SCAMMER, PERSON, USES THEIR INTERNET TO MAKE PHONE CALLS ( MAGIC JACK THAT IS SOLD ON TV INFOMERCIALS AND DEPT. STORES) AS WELL AS OTHER EQUIPENT TO MAKE VOIP CALLS. I HAVE CONTACTED MY CONGRESSMAN'S OFFICE SEVERAL TIMES WHO HAD AN ENGINEER WITH THE FCC CALL ME BACK. I TALKED SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITH THIS ENGINEER WHO SAID THE FOLLOWING-- calls made with  VOIP are almost impossible to trace, it takes tons of man hours, super expensive equipment, and they have to have all of it set up in advance of any calls to you from the scammer- he also said the trace if they can complete one is not 100 % accurate and most of the time a trace can not be made.
IF YOU KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT THE INTERNET, WHEN YOU LOG ON SAY FROM  NEW YORK CITY TO BALTIMORE (your connection might be routed thru canada, california, back up to philadelphia etc.){ safe to say all over the place.} YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION IS ROUTED THRU MANY , MANY CITIES, NETWORKS, AND THE CONNECTION CHANGES FOR THE BEST AND QUICKEST CONNECTION.
SO A  VOIP  PHONE CALL MIGHT BE ROUTED HALF DOZEN DIFFERENT WAYS OR MORE DURING YOUR CONVERSATION ON THAT ONE CALL.

NOW , THE CALLER ID SHOWING A PHONE NUMBER, YOU CAN NOT DEPEND ON THAT NUMBER TO BE ACCURATE.

IT WAS ON THE CNN A WILE BACK WHERE A PRANKSTER PURCHASED A SPOOF CARD ONLINE.  ANYONE CAN GO ONLINE AND BUY A SPOOF CARD, YOU CALL A 800  PHONE NUMBER, ENTER YOUR SPOOF CARD ACCT. NUMBER, THE NUMBER YOUR CALLING AND THE NUMBER YOU WANT TO SHOW ON THE PERSONS CALLER I.D.

ON CNN , A PRANKSTER CALLED THE POLICE DEPT. AND SPOOFED A NEIGHBORS NUMBER TO SHOW ON THE POLICE CALLER  I.D. , THE PRANKSTER THEN PROCEEDED TO TELL THE POLICE DISPATCHER THATTHEIR WAS A BOMB, SOMEONE HAD BEEN KILLED, AND ANOTHER BEING HELD HOSTAGE.
THE POLICE CHECKING TO SEE WHO THE NUMBER BELONGED TO THEN WENT TO THE NEIGHBORS OF THE PRANKSTER AND KICKED THEIR DOOR IN, SCARD THE KIDS TO DEATH, KNOCKED THE FATHER AND TEEN AGE SON AWAY FROM THE DINNER TABLE. THE FAMILY DID'NT KNOW WHAT THE HELL WAS HAPPENING. AFTER SEVERAL HOURS THE POLICE REALIZED SOMETHING WAS TERRIBLY WRONG. THEY APPOLOGIZED TO THE FAMILY AND LEFT.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY__ NUMBERS ON A CALLER I.D.  CAN NOT BE RELIED ON EVEN IF THEY ARE WORKING NUMBERS. WHEN PEOPLE POST A COMPANY NAME ON HERE THAT SHOWED ON THEIR CALLER I.D. -- KEEP IN MIND IT MIGHT BE SOME INNOCENT COMPANY OR PERSONS NUMBER.  MAYBE EVEN YOUR PHONE NUMBER THAT SOME TELEMARKETER PICKED AT RANDOM TO SEND OVER CALLER  I.D.

A FRIEND OF MINE SUGGESTED EVERYONE GET UP A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT TO SUE THE PHONE COMPANIES FOR SELLING A SERVICE THAT IS FAULTY !!!
EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY PAYS FOR CALLER  I.D. THAT IS A SHAM !!
IF A COMPANY WAS SELLING SAY ,  REFRIGERATORS THAT WORKED 30 PERCENT OF THE TIME-- THERE WOULD BE CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS EVERYWHERE BEING FILED !

I SUGGEST WE ALL GET TOGETHER AND FILE A  FEDERAL CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST THE MAJOR PHONE COMPANIES FOR SELLING CALLER  I.D. THAT WORKS AT BEST 50 PERCENT OF THE TIME !

SEE HOW QUICK THE PHONE COMPANIES GET THEIR RESEARCH ENGINEERS WORKING ON A WAY TO  ACCURATELY IDENTIFY CALLER ( TELEMARKETER'S NUMBER ) OR THE PHONE COMPANY SYSTEM REJECT THE CALL

OR AT LEAST ALLOW THE RECIPIENT OF THE SCAM CALL TO HAVE THE CORRECT CALL I.D. INFORMATION.

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST PHONE COMPANIES !

HOW DUMB AND STUPID CAN YOU BE ?  EVERYONE KNOWS YOU DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFO OVER THE PHONE ( S.S. NUMBER, BIRTHDATE, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, ETC.)
UNLESS ""YOU""  CALLED THE COMPANY / PERSON  YOURSELF AND KNOW EXACTLY WHO YOU CALLED . ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND KNOWS YOU DONT GIVE OUT INFO WHEN SOMEONE  "CALLS YOU " .  I NOW KNOW WHAT PART OF THE PROBLEM IS WITH THIS COUNTRY !!  IT'S PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT ARE CLUELESS IDIOTS.

ANOTHER POINT---  IN YOUR POSTING YOU SPEAK OF "A ROBO-CALL FROM ALLEGIANCE
TELECOM OF FLORIDA" INC. AGAIN--HOW DUMB YOU ARE AND PEOPLE LIKE YOU START FALSE RUMORS ON THESE SITES THAT MAKE IT HARDER FOR OTHER VICTIMS TO TRACK DOWN THE SCAMMERS AS YOU POSTED FALSE INFORMATION.

--->> FLORIDA TELECOM IS THE PHONE COMPANY THAT SERVICES THE AREA CODE AND PREFIX NUMBERS OF THE NUMBER THAT THE REAL SCAMMERS ARE USING.
FLORIDA TELECOM IS THE SAME AS  A T & T,  IN WHICH THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY OVER AND ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE  CREDIT CARD SCAMMERS.
THE NUMBER THE SCAMMERS POST TO YOUR CALLER I.D. BOX IS WHAT'S CALLED A SPOOFED NUMBER, OR IS A VOIP CALL WHERE THEY CAN ENTER ANY NUMBER THEY WANT TO SHOW ON CALLER  I D BOXES.
ALSO, WHEN YOU POST AN INNOCENT COMPANY'S NAME ON A SITE LIKE THIS YOU DID WITH FLORIDA TELECOM YOU CAUSE THAT COMPANY GREAT DISRESPECT AS THEY ARE INNOCENT.
NEXT TIME GET ALL YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE POSTING SOMEONE'S NAME OR A COMPANY'S NAME IN ERROR. YOU CAN QUICKLY TRASH THE GOOD NAME OF AN INNOCENT PARTY.
***  HOW MANY OF US WHO ARE GETTING THESE CALLS FROM SCAMMERS , THEN WASTED OUR TIME TRYING TO FIND OUT INFO ON FLORIDA TELECOM? A COMPANY THAT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WITH THESE  CREDIT CARD TELEMARKETERS SCAMMERS ?

Answer it once and tell them to stop calling. Then report them. Report them every time they call. Don't let up. Report every number. If it can be established that this is indeed an American company operating in America, using numbers from the same location, you can actually sue them and win $5,000.00 in awards for their violation of the National Do Not Call regulations. Don't give up. Only answer once and let them know you are going to file a complaint. See how much they keep calling let them know your intent to legal action. Don't hold back. Get rude! Cuss at them. They hate that! I did this with a timeshare company that kept harassing me and even sent local authorities to the location they were operating out of. Guess what! I've never heard from them again! Want to get rid of them. Do the work necessary to make them go away. Don't wait for others to do it. Stop making everything everyone else' fault and stop blaming others because you're getting the calls. You somehow leaked your information. You may not even know it because some dumbass you know on facebook got their information lifted when they clicked a link and your information was spread because they were stupid. It happens daily. Remember the porn scam that just happened on Facebook? Anyone that clicked on the link gave away their own as well as all of their friends information. Tell them thank you when you talk to them next time. Don't friend everyone who sends you a request. Don't click on stuff you don't know. Don't like anything. It's not necessary. Secure your Facebook page. It's in your settings. It's easy to do. I did it. If I can do it anyone can. Get smart people. Stop being so open on the internet. It's the WILD WEST of the New Millennium. No regulations and every one and everything are open game. Don't get caught up in the B.S. and protect your own interests at all cost. This is the least of our problems people. Let someone use a link that will allow a back door in to your computer and then see what the reality of all of this is. A few annoying phone calls is nothing compared to the big picture.

Yo! Genius! You somehow brought those calls on. You gave someone somewhere your information. That's how it works. Stop liking everything. I don't really care what you like and don't want to see it on my Facebook newsfeed so stop it. It's all advertising scams anyway. Don't click on links in Facebook you don't know and if your friends are spamming your newsfeed, dump them. They too are giving our information away. Answer the call one time and threaten them. Then go to this website and report them.  

https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2

Then take the time to educate yourself in your use of facebook. Read their documentation so you know that they are selling your information. Secure your account so they know you don't want to sell your information. Then go here and learn what the scams are that are being used.

This is the most useful thing you can do for yourself to stop the calls. Know who is trying to get to you and what methods they are using to get there. The first step to prevention is education.

Oh my God! You had to get up and look at the caller ID? Did you break your legs? Here's a thought! Buy a phone with caller ID in it. Keep it next to you so you don't have to strain yourself getting up and looking at who is calling. That was the dumbest statement I've ever heard my friend. No damage done. And if it was it's because YOU somehow gave the information to them. They don't under normal circumstances, just cold call you on both your home number and cell number. They have to get that information from somewhere which means you signed up for something, liked a link on facebook or another social network, entered a contest that was probably run by a timesharing company or something to that effect. Have you ever entered Publisher's Clearinghouse? THEY sell your information. Don't blame the government. Though I am not a big fan of the way the government today runs, It's not their fault you gave someone somewhere permission to share information you provided. Trust me I've been around long enough to know how it works. Stop blaming others, look at your own activity and stop doing the things that cause these people to exist. If everyone were to educate themselves on what brings this stuff on this could all be stopped. The problem is in this world of immediate gratification everyone wants to know what the next great thing is. They don't read the fine print when they click on an internet link and this type of stuff happens. If we are posting here, WE SCREWED UP! All of us. The trick is to learn what not to do so it doesn't keep happening with more and more numbers.

Yup, and that's why you get calls from telemarketers too. How secure is your Facebook account? Are you set to https:// or simply http:// ? I'll bet the latter. You call this guy a moron and yet you allow things like this. I'll bet dollars do donuts you play at least one app on facebook. If you do that is why you are on this board posting. You gave Facebook or Zynga or someone like them permission to sell your information when you clicked the allow button. Don't call someone else a moron unless you are infallible to the problem. Obviously you both operate at the same intelligence level because you have both had to look up this number. I too have made the mistake and I won't call anyone a moron for making a mistake. I will however call you a moron if you keep repeating it. NOW! Go to your facebook profile, set your browser settings to secure so you access facebook under the secure format which will show up in your browser address bar as ( https://facebook.com ). If you do this no one can take your information off of facebook unless you approve it. Once you have set up to this setting, you will no longer be allowed to play the games but you will be allowed to use facebook in a way that it was intended for Social networking. Stop calling people stupid! It only makes you look like you might share the same tendencies. Surf safely, stop entering contests, stop clicking on videos that come from unknown sources. No one can see who has been looking at their facebook account so don't bother trying to see if it's true. Here is some really good protection for anyone who might want it. This is a page within facebook that will tell you every scam that is out there. Check it a couple of times a and you'll know what is a scam and what isn't. (( https://www.facebook.com/Facecrooks )). Or simply type facecrooks in the search bar within facebook. This my friends is one of the easiest ways to stop the calls. Simple and easy. Not a scam. If you wonder if it's run it through your anti-virus software first. As a matter of fact, I would recommend every person that has received a phone call from the number we are commenting about to run a scan anyway. There is probably something attached to your computer. Deleter all of your cookies and clean out your browser history, then run the scan. Secure your facebook account, stop clicking links and you'll find that the frequency of these calls WILL stop.

No, it's not "as simple as that" if you don't have a CID display near or embedded in every phone and you have no choice but to answer all the mystery calls. The latter is true at workplaces, and both conditions prevailed during the six intense weeks of end-of-life care for my mother.

We had health care and hospice personnel calling every day, usually from mobile phones, usually with no useful CID transmitted. There was simply no time for the rigorous kind of call screening we might otherwise maintain. One of these stupid "Rachel" credit reprice scam calls caught me forty minutes .. that's four-zero .... after my mother's time of death at home. This did not render me "inconvenienced a little bit". This made me enraged, and I see no need for apology.

I needed that line clear for actual medical and family business, not some creep with an autodialer who thinks every active phone number is an open invitation for tiresome scams. My feeling hasn't changed now that the crisis is past. I don't float a monthly phone bill and keep my number private for others to abuse my patience.

Blocking and ignoring calls from fraud peddlers muffles the noise but does not cut them at the knees. It has been proven repeatedly here and in countless anecdotes from others that doing nothing stops nothing. What's more, deleting certain messages can be like throwing away money when they violate various laws. The frauds prefer we do what's easy, instead of what's vigilant and corrective.

They got your information from something you did. If your phone number is unlisted, it should never show up in a database. The only way they could have found it is through a computer program that random dials or you clicked a link on a website, entered a contest, or "Liked" something in a social network environment. I for one hadn't received a telemarketing phone call in 3 years after filing with the NDNC. I then joined Facebook and set up a profile. I have been getting calls ever since. Most people will stop calling if you tell them you're on the National Do Not Call list and will comply to the federal law created by it. The problem is you have those that use U.S. numbers but are actually dialing from somewhere outside the country which makes them exempt from U.S. regulations. Here is where we run in to a problem. Most people want to keep the internet unregulated and uncensored. In order for this to happen we have to deal with what the people outside the U.S. do. This being said, we can give the government control of our internet use, or we can accept the fact that we are going to be inconvenienced by people like this and move on. Don't answer the phone and they can't bother you. If they leave a message, delete it. This isn't hard folks and we don't have to get so worked up over it that it ruins our day. It only takes a few seconds to get rid of them or ignore them. The phone ringing never killed anyone, unless they had a blasting cap rigged to the low voltage coming in through the phone line, but that's another subject for another time. Seriously people it's nothing more than the phone ringing. Get past it and go love your families. It's a better way to live and much less stressful. The phone will ring. It's a fact of life in modern society. Most of us have caller ID and if you don't it's time to move in to the 21st century. Live, Love, and Prosper! Don't give out personal information to anyone, Secure your Facebook account and stop liking everything, No one really cares if you like it or not and in my case I most often wonder what the hell someone would like that for in the first place. Facebook will sell your information if you play a game, like something or join a group that you have to click a permission link for. Zynga games is a huge culprit. Protect yourselves people and you won't be troubled by these people.

Yeah, Okay Mikey,
The thing is in order for you to file a complaint and qualify to file a lawsuit against the offender, you have to tell them to stop calling. This call should be taken only one time. After that you have made the caller aware of the fact that you don't want their calls anymore and you have started the legal action necessary to be able to file suit. If you go through the right steps and these people continue to call, you can hire an attorney and be eligible for a $5,000.00 award from the offending party. If you don't tell them not to call you are giving them permission TO call. To put it simply answer the phone tell them you don't have any credit cards. Tell them they are wasting their time calling you. Tell them you don't want their calls anymore and that you ARE on the National Do Not Call list. Once you have done this, you have set up your intent to legal action. Document the Name of the company calling, the phone number, the time and the date of the call. Keep this information so if they call again, you can show that there have been multiple violations. On the date that you file with NDNC, you should have the information from the first call as well as information from the next call. It will help them to see if there is a connection if more than one number is being used. Keep reporting them and if enough people do it, Maybe these people can actually be stopped. The problem is most people don't make report and not enough people are complaining so the NDNC is unaware of that the problem is as big as it really is. Don't be afraid to take the call, just know how to handle the call.

It's like answering an email link that is put in an email to unsubscribe from scam. It actually forwards the information to other people and the chain keeps rolling. Here is the best option. Don't answer their calls, don't click the unsubscribe link in an email, educate yourself as to how the scam industry operates and FOR GOD'S SAKE, STOP LIKING EVERYTHING ON FACEBOOK! They are the biggest reason these calls started in the first place. Don't enter sweepstakes offers in the mail. Don't try to win a new car at the mall. This all leads to them contacting you and if you look at the fine print on the NDNC list you will see that if you initiated the contact it is completely legal for them to contact you. Be careful what you do and to whom you give your information. It's the easiest way to not receive these annoying calls. Obviously I've made the same mistakes and that's why I'm posting on this board. Not exactly sure what I "Liked" on Facebook, but that's when it all started.
Don't Answer the Phone!

Here is a thought, If you see a number on your caller ID that you don't know, Don't answer it. It's as simple as that. If they leave a message delete it. Not too hard to figure out now is it? I agree, they are a pain in the a$$, but in the same token, it's like watching a T.V. show, you can choose not to watch, the same as you can choose not to answer. If they call hit talk and then hit end. Simple and they don't really bother you. They just inconvenienced you a little bit. They can't get any information from you by ringing your phone. Only you can supply that info. so the easiest way to stop them is DON'T TALK TO THEM!

Ummmmm, Yes, They are! What makes you think the Government gives even a flying s@#t about you? If they did, the economy and our way of life would still be in tact. The government is nothing but a bunch of legal mobsters taking the money you pay in to the U.S. Treasury in taxes and using if for their own interests. They are supporting a tax free system for the wealthy and sucking the middle and lower classes dry. If you don't see this, I guess you are an idiot. Here is a prime example of how this is true. I live in a 1,000 square foot house in a town with higher than average crime. I pay as much in property tax to live in this small house in this crap hole of a town as people 2 towns away from me do. The houses there average around 3,000 square feet, sit on 1 acre lots and they have lower than average crime. Where is the money I'm paying in property taxes going? The services in the town I live in SUCK! They don't plow or salt the streets properly in the winter and they spend more on the park district than they do on crime prevention. They say we should do our part with neighborhood watch rather than hiring the appropriately trained police officers necessary. The mayor draws a half a million dollar salary per year and does absolutely nothing to remedy the problems in town. The schools are substandard and yet we pay more in school taxes than they do in affluent neighborhoods. The government sucks my friend. On all levels. Look in to what your local state and the federal government are doing to programs in your area. If you can show me one example where the educational system is being funded properly I'll rescind this comment and make a public apology, but I'll guarantee on a state level your educational system is being cut somewhere. Yet I'll almost promise you NOT ONE of your government officials is taking any kind of cut in pay or benefits and I'll guarantee they are building a pension on YOUR dime. I can tell you as a resident of Illinois, we are in trouble. The state has mismanaged money so much that we as residents of the state are responsible for $30,000 per person to pay the pensions to the same people that have destroyed our state economy. Do the research. Look at what programs are being cut. I don't know how old you are but I'll almost guarantee that when you retire, social security and medic-aid are going to be nonexistent. That's what our (FRIENDS) and I use that term loosely, on the federal level are working on now. And don't think they want you to be educated enough to know what they're doing because they don't. That's why the educational system in this country is so poor. They want you to be stupid. If you become educated, you start to figure out what they're up to on capital hill and that's a threat to them and their way of doing business. The GOVERNMENT IN THIS COUNTRY IS SOLELY THE PROBLEM FOR WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY! They're in bed with the big corporations, they give them a free ride in exchange for money to cover their agenda. NOT YOUR AGENDA. They take bribes to cover the cost of their election campaigns and they leave you sitting on the poor farm while their pockets are constantly being lined. Why do think over 80% of our politicians are millionaires? You need to take the blinders off and look at the big picture because if we as Americans don't start doing so, we are going to wind up like Greece and we are going to have to sell ourselves out to other countries. Oh Wait, we already have. China and Mexico. See? Chinese goods and Mexicans crossing our borders at alarming rates. This is how much YOUR GOVERNMENT cares about you. Wake Up Dummy! It's not too late to get involved and take this country back.
