Claims to be "John from the shipping department of emergency medical supplies." We have not ordered emergency medical supplies...
The call is obviously a recording, though pitched as if it's an actual human being. There's no way it's a live person, though; as he kept talking over me, I started ripping into him. No pause, no hesitation when I got colorful the more he went on. There's obviously a scam element involved, because the message claims they are arranging delivery time for something already paid for, etc.
For those thinking some kind of medical history triggered this call, no; it's just typical auto-dialer telemarketing/scammers. We have no medical issues and no one in our immediate family with them, and are of course not even the target demographic. Just a robodialer fishing hook...
After answering, there was the telltale delay of a predictive dialer, followed by "Hello, this is Mike with the shipping department calling to arrange a delivery time for your medical alert system, you know, the one that helps you get up when you've fallen?" I hung up. They have probably gotten word of my father in-law's change-of-address form being filed and are trying to sell him stuff. I strongly suspect that, if you say the wrong thing, you get the new "system" shipped "to the comfort of your home". Sorry sons of bitches.

Please stop calling with your stupid scams!
A total pesky caller. Not interested in junk offered.
I wish someone could get rid of this caller. Very annoying. Was marketing some kind of medic alert system 10 days ago. He is still out there!
I am getting tired of these telemarketers. They call all the time.
What is really perturbing, that this "company" somehow had access to some of my medical information und tried to deliver a medic alert system to me due to my recent break. There is something very wrong.
