    Bill Collectors Keep Calling Me

    I got this phone number (http://www.badnumbers.com/866-387-8751/) that keeps calling me from company called a CBV.  How the heck do I get them to stop.  I don't owe anything as far as I know.

    No Patience

    I have no patience for telemarketers. I do not listen to their pitch. I just say "No Thank You" and hang up.

    I Don't Answer My Phone To Telemarketeers

    Caller ID would help in not answering the phone to Telemarketeers, but it is an expense some of us would rather not have to pay. I got a Google voice number that I give out as my number and it rings all of my phones at the same time. When I am home, if only one phone rings, I...

    Annoying Telemarketing Numbers

    Don't you hate it when telemarketers/spam numbers call your phone and mobile. I've had lots of numbers calling my cell phone before I changed my number. There where numbers in my area code , same state I live in and numbers from other states too. I ignored them the first time...

    Sorry I know people have to make a living,

    but there's such thing as right livelihood. These telemarketers sell junk. If want to buy something I'll go to a store or go online. These guys that come door to door trying to change your utility plan get on big blast. I just had one come to the door at dinner time on Sunday. I...

    I Know, But I Thought

    I know the people who work for these companies need to make a living and follow a prepared script. But, even when I was still working, I asked more than once to go on a national Do Not Call listing. I though that would do it. Now that I'm not working and exist on disability...

    SSShhh....I Was a Telemarketer.

    At one time I dragged my 2 youngest kids (teenagers) to a small town far away from home to get them away from all the drugs, crime, etc, that sneaked up behind us.  I made 2 mistakes. 1.) There was still lots of drugs in the schools - foolish me.  2.) Jobs were hard...

    How Annoying!!

    Why can't Telemarketers or Spam numbers just get a life and lay off the prank or unnecessary calls? In the past, I've had SO many telemarketer and spam numbers call on my cell phone. I just ignored them at first, but still get annoyed by them. One time, I've gotten a threatening...

    Be incredibly polite

    as they explain their offer, but make farting noises once in a while and ask whether there is something wrong with the connection.

    I do feel bad for them sometimes... I mean, sure, they are annoying as Hell. But really, they're just doing their jobs and trying to make it in this crazy world. So I don't know if I would say that I hate the actual telemarketers themselves, but I would absolutely say that I...
