The last 4 calls have been telemarketers. You know those commercials where they talk super fast (the small print) when going over details? Well, the last guy talked about 5 words per second or something like that. He asked for my age, & I coulda sworn he kept saying it would be $39/mo but when I asked, he said it was free but he talked so fast I couldn’t understand him :(. What’s up with all these telemarketer calls? We get them occasionally, but 4 in a row?

So the guy that talked really fast, he keeps calling me back & I keep saying I’m not interested & he keeps saying its free but then says something like “39/month” when he talks about something else & idk what to do :(. I seriously can’t understand him, but I KNOW he’s saying something about a charge.
Plus, he wants me to confirm the SAME information again & I confirmed the address with him 2 times in the same call & he wanted to go over it again. All I’ve ever said was “that is correct”.
Anyone from the yellowbook online ads call & its legit? I feel like a jerk hanging up on him. & I KNOW he’s calling me back again. Ahhhh 🙁

@canthugallcats: We get these, we just simply tell them, “We are not interested. We’re not giving you any information or confirming anything. Please remove my name & quit calling”

I usually make conversation with them. It drives them crazy! lol. That’s only when I’m in a good mood though… 😀

yeah, I’ve heard that you’re not supposed to confirm any information, something about identity theft scams or something. Actually, no, that was some company calling businesses and signing them up for something without them asking and then calling to “confirm” their info.

He called again today & I just said 4 times (literally!) “I cannot confirm any further information”. He just kept asking. I’m so fed up, but I feel way too bad to hang up on anyone :(. I think he’s done calling now. yay!
I’ve had telemarketers beg for my last name (seriously, I could NOT get rid of that guy), ask for my age (then say they want to be sure I’m not a minor), they have me confirm the SAME info over & over again, but I always say “correct” because I know if you say “yes”, certain scams record it & use that against us.
