    Scammers

    There is no end to the ingenuity of scammers to find ways of robbing the public purse.

    Thought I'd post this here.

    Phone scamming seems to be on the increase these days, I had two calls yesterday, one of them trying to sell me a device for saving hydro - sure – I’ll buy that - another was purportedly from Bell checking on our service etc. Not sure what his end run was but I didn’t give him time to finish.

    There have been people coming around trying to get people tosign up for a different water heater rental company, one was quite insistent that he see our bill so he could show us how to save money !! Right – sure – get off my doorstep. Dead air calls are also increasing, we are supposed to be on the do not call list but I guess they don’t read. LOL

    We don’t have call display so can’t report a number, but I'm sure it would be useless anyway.

    Hi Sunnyside.I think dead air calls occur when automated call centers dial another number before a previous one has been ended

    Just a guess . :scratch:

    I despise those people that want to sell junk over the phone.

    I have caller ID and a voice mail. I will not pick up the calls that read out of area with or unknown. If they want to talk they will put something on the recorder or I will not pick it up at all when they call.

    Same here, I may miss a call one day that might be important, but if they are hiding their number, or it is a toll free looking number, then I don't bother with it.

    Ditto. Unfortunately hubby will pick any and all calls although he usually waits until after the 3rd ring. By that time the computer generated call has gone on to dial the next number.
