    Wow 2 shit list posts in one day. I never though I'd be able to do this. Ok so a 900 number to be exact 900 968 1875 called me a couple of times today. I was thinking, "What the fuck? How is a 900 number calling me?" So I didn't answer. I was thinking if I answered somehow it was a scam. Then I thought about it a little more and thought the scam might be for you to call them back and you know how the 900 numbers are from $2 a minute to like $40 for a phone call, so I didn't call them back (there was a similar scam a few years ago the 809 scam which was a number from the Dominican Republic). Anyway these assholes called me three times today. Finally about 20 minutes ago they called me for the last time since I blocked them on my cell phone which is a private number and I have no clue how they got my number. I saw tons of complaints for these assholes. Basically when they call you tell them to fuck off or just block them on your phones now.

    These are just a few of the complaints (and there are a lot just at these links). To me it looks like they are affiliate telemarketers and they made the mistake of using people in India to do their telemarketing and are going to have serious legal problems very soon because of their disregard to US law and the Do Not Call List.

    I think they are wardialing, I activated a prepaid phone yesterday and was awoken at 5:55am with a private phone call on it, so I picked it up and just listened and nothing but silence. It's better than the one that played a recorded "Hello!" and then played the ad...

    In India, before you can circulate your new numbers to your friends and relatives, you are sure to receive some sales calls, GUARANTEED!

    I guess they realized I blocked their number and they called me from another number. 514 555 5555. I actually answered the phone since I didn't realize it was them and they tried to get me to sign up for $1.98 shipping and handling. The guy didn't let me hang up the phone when I was being nice so I just told him to fuck off. I doubt they'll be calling me back again.
