It was a recorded message, saying something to do with possibly being entitled to a settlement if I've been victimized by something. I was very irritated and waiting for an important call. No one would complain if lawmakers made this kind of random, automated solicitation illegal.
Nothing that you do will stop them from calling you. The major players behind this have made millions of dollars, which means that they are too big to fail.
One of the major players specializes in aiding the rich with tax evasion and shell corporations set up in Belize. You can bet that the well to do in this country are not getting lower your credit card interest rate calls and due to that fact our government just considers a few phone calls a minor annoyance.
The FCC has temporarily halted 5 of the minor unprofitable boiler rooms. They will receive a slap on the wrist and be back at it within a few days.
In the meantime the calls will continue since the major money is being made with what is called a CNAM revenue-sharing program through companies like http://www.telephonemanagement.net
In their own words: 'Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.'
You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them. These people are the lowest form of filth on this planet. The only way to stop this is to contact the FBI and ask why this crime family is allowed to operate and facilitate the ongoing criminal operations. This is one of the reasons that the RICO act was put in place, so why aren't they using it. Is this because this isn't a high profile, news worthy operation or is the FBI too understaffed and busy with Homeland Security issues. Maybe if we were rich they would take this seriously, but then if we were rich we would be using that criminal organizations services and protecting them instead of trying to shut them down.
There is a blog site that has information on one of these operations: http://telemarketerspam.wordpress.com
I've been seeking employment and I'm sure they're getting my info from some of the websites I've registered for. I don't want to turn off my phone in case prospective employers try to call. What I've done is to create a contact on my phone (I've titled mine "Miscellaneous"). I have set this contact to go straight to voicemail. When I get a call from a number I don't recognize, I go ahead and answer it. When I realize that it's a solicitation call, I hang up. Then, I add the number to my "Miscellaneous" contact. That way, when they call back (and they will), I don't have to waste my breath. They never leave a message, so it's not wasting theirs, either.
It's amazing that I get these calls here at my Baker Street home, but my phone was silenced due to Gladstone's posterior flab. I believe these strange gypsy callers are attempting to market my interest rates or possibly birth control lawsuits, but I cannot theorize without data, so I will wait for them to repeat their gypsy magic and then the good Doctor and myself will attempt to disarm their blasphemy through science instead of allowing these mild intrusions to register on an emotional level.
