Keep them on the line... Make them think they have the sale. Get all the way to the point of having to pay. Ask a lot of stupid questions over and over. Wait until you can hear the frustration in their voice as they answer the same question you already asked 4 times. Then, when they try and close the deal, hit them with something like;

I told you pricks to take me off your list a dozen times. I don't plan on buying shit from you and every time you call I will waste your time like this.

They will not call back... works for me every time!

I've told a few that my boyfriend is a police officer, and that I'm going to report them for harassment.

Your idea sounds like fun.

Start asking them questions, like, what's your home address?
what's your social security number? can I have your home number and call you back later? This is my home, if you will give me your home phone number I'll call you later when your at home.

Me, too! I got so tired of hearing the phone ring from different area codes several times a day that I unhooked the land-line phone, taking calls from family only from the cell phone, and from those with a need to reach me. Those telemarketers have high-jacked our phones! You have to pay a fee to have all stopped except for charities. NO!

The caller ID lets me know if I should return the call. No more of that infernal ring, ring, ringing.

Just do what I've done for decades

Be polite and instantly say

"Sorry, were in the middle of bankruptcy and losing our home"

Substitute 'business' for home if they call you at your own business.

My elderly grandparents are getting calls from people my gram calls "drug pushers". They are in some foreign country and they never call from the same number twice and their number shows up as a us city all the time.

They keep insisting my gram bought drugs from them. The other day she banged a pot in their ear, they still called back. Gramps blew a whistle in their ear, they still called back. It's a landline phone and phone company told grandparents they could do nothing about it.

NOthing's gonna stop them. I know several guys that "work the phones" in boiler rooms around here. There are lots of them. Timeshares and fly and buys and shit, this is timeshare central around here. We use these guys to swindle chumps into special deals that includes their HAVING to come to our bullshit timeshare presentation.

Even if they take you off their list, there are THOUSANDS of lists, and you're on all of them. They BUY these lists.

Sometimes THEY even get bored, and they will fuck with YOU. If you waste their time, you're wasting your own time. Just hang up on them. They just click to the next name on a list of thousands.

These 'tricks' will not get them to stop.

Too many.

I still like to ask how much for the little blue pills?

Then hang up after you get them down.

They call back and you get them down some more.

Hang up.

You are taking up their time for the good of others.

My favorite is when the telemarketers call for Duct Cleaning.

I always say "Yes, I am very interested but I don't have ducks. I have chickens. Do you clean chickens?"

I get a lot of confused questions, some hangups and once in a while they play along.
