Do You Get Annoying DEAD AIR Phone Calls? Here's How To FIGHT BACK
Anyone else dealing with these calls? Ever want to reach through the phone & wring some scrawny telemarketer's neck, until he/she's gasping for his/her last breath?

Sick of the bullshit?

Today's calls were the last goddamn straw. Enough is enough.

I saw a familiar ANNOYING phone number pop up on the caller ID and reamed the shit out of the <<<<DEAD AIR>>>> fucktard on the other end of he call. Told the asshole to remove my phone number from their call bank. Explained that I am now reporting these calls to the FCC. Don't know if it'll help, but at least I got some satisfaction out of blasting the POS on the other end of he line. lol

Here's the deal.

For about 2 months I've been getting these annoying DEAD AIR/no one on the other end of the line phone calls.

Reached the breaking point & Googled these incoming numbers & discovered that there are thousands of people posting complaints about the same numbers.

Since my POS phone company doesn't provide a service to block incoming numbers I decided to see what the FCC had to say about the issue.

Went to the FCC site & found their online complaint form.

[link to esupport.fcc.gov]

It took less than 2 minutes to complete the form.

WTF is the DEAL with these dead air calls? Do any of you know what's behind this bullshit?

Get them here all the time at work! I answer, I introduce myself and the company and then nothing....


so I put 'whoever' on hold until the line disconnects
anything after 'but' is bullshit!

I get them too. I create a new user in my cell phone and add them to that entry, with the ring set to "silent".

Sorry, but the FTC doesn't give a crap. They're overseas telemarketers spoofing or using local numbers. When you sign up for Skype you can get a number anywhere.

In my case, I had bought viag-r-a from an online pharmacy years ago. Serves me right, I've been getting calls for years.

I get them at work all the time too. And they have to go through an automated switchboard before it rings at the desk too.
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

I know what it is....

The Telemarketers use a computer to dial about ten numbers at a time. They answer the first person that picks up, letting the other nine listen to dead air.

Sometimes it will happen more than once to me before someone is actually on the line. I then tell them they are using an illegal dialing machine, and that I am complaining.

As far as I know, this method is illegal.

Now when I pick up the phone and no one is there right away, I hang up.
