Re: Cell Phones getting scams (mine is)

Provided you can get through their phone web, of course (for businesses only).

And sometimes (so I heard), they'd even hang up on you if you have to do the number removal through a live person.

But, the ones with automated number removal are the best, because theorectically it can't hang up on you since it's a robot.

I've never had to remove my numbers before, so I don't know how accurate I am when it comes to what I just described but I do have friends who had to deal with the supposed annoyance multiple times.

Though one time I did receive such a call on my cell phone, but only once and that was many years ago.

I know nothing about how easy or hard it is regarding charities but I imagine it'd be about the same, but my friends only relayed their experience regard business calls of that nature.

When it comes to politicians, I don't answer but I do respond to mail requests (but not from other things, only politics).

As soon as they start their spiel I just say "please take us off your list" and hang up. It does work for both businesses and charities. Now the only calls we get are the scammers, politicians and some local idiots who think they can get away with it. I report them.
