Stop phone solicitation. The people that do this job are trained to make you feel bad so you will send a donation or buy something. They focus on Seniors, young people and low income people. Remember the freedom of information act and the way they watch you. Your trusted phone servers sell your number to the scammers. They call them servers now not company’s… Did you know that every time you scan that store card you carry to get that so-called discount. That bar code on the back has all your information…They know who you are, where you live, where you go and what you do. If you give your credit number to someone on the phone will your credit card be safe? Never give them any numbers or buy anything over the phone. Never pay for anything on that auto payment plan.
Please Note! If you decide to get a new phone or just feel like replacing your old one because of those annoying calls. Go on the internet or get a friend to help you find the model number of one and make sure it has the call block feature. These days it will be on the box or in the feature section of the manual. Yes, it may cost a little more but its worth it not to have listen to these morons try to scam you out of your life savings. No matter what they say or how nice their voice sounds, they lie to you, they don’t care about you. When buying your phone from one of those workers in the electronic dept. at your local Wally Land most don’t have a clue about what their talking about so just don’t buy anything. Make them show you where it says, this phone has the “CALL BLOCK” feature. I’ve have one for years and when a unwanted call comes in, it rings once then shuts off. (Hangs up) The call has been blocked. Too block a call you save the number and it will say on the screen, delete or call block. Click on Call block and its done so when they call again and they will, it will block the call from that number. The sophisticated scammer will have two or three numbers. Block them all! They will do anything to catch at your weakest moment…Good Luck and I mean that.. The more we do to keep this scum at bay the better we will feel...
