They use fake numbers that are very similar to yours too fool you into thinking it's someone you know. I really hate it. But luckily I don't live in the same area code as my phone number so I know it's a robo call or a scam.
@Xenn, I just never answer the phone if I don’t know the number. If it happens to be important they will leave a voicemail
@Alliance, I answer now and if I get the chance, I blast John Cena's Theme loudly into the phone. Hopefully teach them to stop calling me. ;)
@Xenn, bleed there ears with feedback noise!
Someone always calls me looking for donations to the "policemen's ball", and they're always asking for Kathleen, "Is Kathleen there?"
Like 1. Policemen don't have balls (lol)
2. I always tell them Kathleen is locked in my basement, and that I'm starving her to keep her weak and submissive to my evil will 😈
Or they use call service apps
I got three today.......
Don't even get me started on the endless calls today from some morons telling me they are from the Social Security Administration telling me my ssn has been blocked. Eight calls from eight different numbers, but all from the same area code.
Ok. I got started, but don't keep me going.
@riidii, A popular one going around is a robotic message claiming to be the IRS and that they’re preparing a case against you unless you call their number back.
