Thumbs up Telemarketer/scammer calls

Telemarketer/scammer calls have dropped quite a bit
after we started answering the phone with
"Sheriff's Office - Fraud Division"
when it's an unknown/invalid number.

I have never received one thatís not automated so I am not sure how that will help.

The ones with real people don't care about the law because they're not in this Country.

I think we need to hunt them down.

Got a call from Roanoke, Tx trying to sell me a home security system. It was prolly the 7th or 8th call from them. After my 9th call back to them they finally asked me why I had called back so many times. “It’s annoying isn’t it?!” Her response....”sir, we’ll put you on the do not call list”. They’ve not called back since

I give the phone to my 3 yr old grandson. Waste enough of their time and maybe they leave me alone.

Iíve gotten them from a female telemarketer in Greenville. She leaves her name saying this is Angela, we really need to talk. After the second voicemail and still no return call from me, she will call and let it ring only once. I DO NOT CARE that you are a WOMAN. It makes me no more interested in what you are selling due to the fact you are a woman. Because I have ZERO interest in any of it no matter who is selling it or what is being sold. Maybe it makes a difference with some of the dogs she is used to talking with. LOL I donít know and donít care!!!!!!!

Just leave me alone.
