Weird phone calls
So I just got a weird phone call. It was a woman calling from a local phone number (spoofed?) asking me who I go to for advice. I asked her what in the heck she was talking about and she said "You know, who do you go to or call when you need advice on making decisions?"

My answer was simple. I said "Since I don't know you I'd say that's none of your damned business, so take my number off of your call list and never call me again!"

I did not feel the need to be polite because this is the third call I've received like this in a few weeks. The other calls were from different numbers- which I immediately blocked after hanging up.

The call begins with being told "This is not a telemarketing or sales call." It is a real human, not a robocall each time. The call never gets far enough to find out who the call is from, mainly because I'm hot tempered and it pisses me off when people I don't know ask me intrusive questions.

Has anyone else been getting calls like this? Just curious.

People looking for wisdom usually knock on my door or stop when I'm outside and the wisdom generally refers to plants and gardening- not people who got my number from a list and are most likely polling for a political entity. 2 of our 4 kids make a living doing exactly that and have removed my and my husband's number from their data bases.

Scam call. They are fishing for information, specifically names and addresses, phone numbers. And if they think you are gullible enough, your bank accounts

How about those weird friend requests that are just pictures of torture instruments with comments from people that have proclamations against gangstalkers on their profile?

I'd second this. Probably trying to find anyone who is severely depressed, then sell them a program or some kind of snake oil cure. "all we need is your credit card number"

This makes sense but I wonder because as stated in another response a couple of our (adult) kids work for a company that does polling, almost exclusively the political kind, and asking where I get my advice sounds like some of the sorts of questions they ask depending on the client. I had one of them check and it wasn't anyone in their company but there are numerous others.

What’s the phone number(s) you got the calls from?

Could be a marketing survey?
