On topic, I've received calls from this number, and they finally got the picture after yelling at them, not once, but twice.

There's so many of these scams nowadays. In Canada there were many people, including myself, who received calls for extended warranties which was a scam.

Scams totally suck.

I once got in an argument with someone who was trying to get information out of me. It was a pointless argument, but I just felt like yelling, and it felt good to get that out of my system. Thank god for caller ID (which I got after that incident, as the idiots kept calling me back multiple times), so now I won't answer the phone unless I recognize the name or number.

That's exactly what happened, I was annoyed and felt like yelling, but then I just got fed up and hung up.

K wtf, I've been getting a bunch of crap calls like this lately too. I went to the donotcall page and they have a link where you can check to verify that your number is registered. Mine wasn't, no idea why because it definitely used to be but I registered again.

Yup, I yelled at them to stop calling me, and hung up. They eventually gave up. This was on my home phone, but I had registered for the do not call list. Just to be on the safe side, I registered my cell as well. I've noticed a definite decrease in the amount of calls I get, which is great.

Yes, but the bastards still call I don't know why/how this is legal. You can go to 'do not call' site and register a complaint. I don't know if it does any good or not

I think it only lasts 5 years or so, and then you have to re-sign up. I get lots of 'unknown caller' and 'private callers'. I hate that, cuz sometimes it's a legitimate call, like a doctor's office or something. And I get spam faxes all the time. And I'm afraid if I "call to remove my name", that somehow gets them authorized to keep calling me, since I contacted them.

There have been lots of "companies" just blatantly ignoring the do not call registry.

I've been getting those calls too. Now I just don't answer. I need to make sure my numbers are still on the Do Not Call Registry.

Are they being reported? And does anything ever get done about it if they do get reported?

I have it and get calls like this all the time. I even signed up again a few months ago. It seemed to work for awhile. I don't answer the phone if I don't recognize the number - ever - and eventually the calls stop, but then new ones start up. For calls from "private numbers" my phone is set not to ring.

I don't answer phone calls from numbers I don't know on principle, but these weird numbers call my cell daily and it drives me batty. I know a lot of them come from the Florida Democrats or whatever because when I was in my freshman year I signed up (although I am not a Dem) just to get a free shirt. Fuckers won't stop calling me!
Sometimes I answer and they go on and on and on

And a number from D.C. calls my house daily with the digits 202-000-0000.

The few times I've been rude with telemarketers has been hilarious though. One called and said, "Hello is (my brother's name) home?" I yelled, "Nope!" and hung up straight away. Other times I'll just say hello and then up the volume on the TV, leaving it there for a few minutes. I think once it was a movie with a bunch of profanities.
