''don't hang up-this is not a sales call.'' ARGH!!!

this #(cell) calls me at least once month, and when i actually answer the phone, this is the recording i hear. i didn't answer today, and the message was left to call "?" at a landline #. i call that #, and get the same recorded message.
i have my phone on the DNC list..like that's done any good. how can i find out who's calling me so i can give them a piece of my mind??

  • It is usually a bill collector or a survey. Hold on the line and see.

  • I get them all the time and have been on the don not call list for a long time and renew yearly. They don't care, and I pay extra so that a caller has to show a name and # or it won't go through, and yup, they still come through..........It really pisses me off.

  • lol... that poor person they are trying to reach... can you imagine the interest on that account in the past year of calling the wrong number.

    :D

    I didn't mean to imply that you did.

  • It is usually a bill collector --

    if that's the case, they've been calling the wrong number for about a year. LOL! (we owe no one.)

  • since i have nothing to do right now, out of curiosity i called the number and waited..you were right..it was some credit business, and when i asked why they kept calling me, they told me the name of a guy who had given this # to them. i haven't the foggiest notion who he is, as i'd only heard his name....drum roll...from one of the calls months ago (again, not knowing who was calling) who asked to speak to " ".
    if he's this behind that they are having to call, albeit the wrong #, this often/this long a period..i bet he's not feeling any pain about owing!!
