These folks are especially annoying. They've decided to call every day. They don't bother to leave a message. It smells like fraud.

Well, they didn't give up even though their number is blocked. Time to report them to the FTC.

They called me twice today. The first time they called as a Private number, which my call blocker automatically blocks. They immediately called back as 800 Service, which I added to my call blocker yesterday. When will they give up?

Called it back...it's "Patriot Voices PAC..." Which actually sounds like a group I would be interested in supporting, except I don't have any cash to spare them right now!!!!!

If everybody would just quit answering unidentified calls they would soon go away... You don't see too many door-to-door sales anymore, do you?

@ JJ, you are incorrect. There is a company called Pacific Telecomm that sold its entire block of 77,000 numbers to a telemarketeer that had previously been shut down under a different name. That telemarketing company and Pacific Telecomm realized that other telephone companies are required to pay a tiny fee for the caller ID info they transmit on every call.

This company is one that does a lot of card services scam calls among other familiar spammers.

The reason why those calls will never go away whether you answer the or not, whether you ask to be removed (they just laugh in your face and hang up), or whether you scream at them. They use auto dialers to make 10s of thousand if not hundreds of thousands of calls a day and rake in a fortune from the fees paid for the caller ID info. They literally just don't care if anyone answers or if you do answer if you're stupid enough to buy into one of their scams. They make their money from the caller ID info fees.

That's why it is so important to file complaints with your state attorney general's office and the FCC if you are getting these calls. Last I knew the Feds and at least a doze attorney generals were looking into this, but the way the laws are written violations are tied to specific numbers and with 77,000 numbers to rotate through there were not many complaints built up about any given number.

In this case since its an 855 number probably not the company I was referring to, but the same thing applies. Someone somewhere is getting paid the caller id info fees, and where the telemarketers are smart they partner with companies like Pacific Telecomm.

I just got a call which I will add to my block list. I will now get no ring but will get a list of blocked calls on my phone.
I have the Panasonic cordless telephone Model kx-tg6842b (2 handsets)
You can block 250 numbers plus kill the one ring that existed on earlier models that only allowed 30 blocked numbers.
The one handset model sells for $70 at Amazon.

Rick Santorum on a robo call. Stay on the line and you have an option to sign a petition or be removed from future calls (#2).

Does the TELE-ZAPPER still work on today's phones?

If you have call block service, block this number. Problem is, most phone companies limit the number of calls that can be blocked to about 30. If you really want to get rid of unwanted calls, use the service that allows only those numbers you list to get through to you; never a call from a stranger.
