In the past month I've been getting hundreds of calls on my cellular from internet pharmacys (pharmacies?) using caller ID spoofers. Always the same indian guy, always says the same thing.

Caller: Our records indicate you're on medications
Me: I don't take medications
Caller: Sir, our records indicate you take lots of medications
Me: If I did take medications, I would take them all at once and find you and eat your face off, otherwise I'd go to a real pharmacy and pick them up. You can't have my credit card number or checking account number, please take me off your list and stop calling <click>


The only place I've ever given this number out is to online casinos, and very few at that, I usually put 1 wrong digit in. Wonder which of the friendly RTG's has been selling phone numbers?

I assume you are on the new cellular "do not call" list which I know is nothing more than a deterent law as it is basically unenforceable to the "boiler room" type telecommunication operations who do not give a rat's rear about the "do not call". Thought I would still ask.....BTW,fowarded your Tunny pics/post to a few friends/family and some actually e-mailed me back with comments. Thanks as almost no one even knew about the Tunny bad weather, only Atlanta!!

I registered for the cellular do not call list when it first started, and as you said, it's hard to enforce with people like these, scumbags. Amazes me that they call back about everyday at the same time too, 9:30 at night.. freaks.

I talked to some people staying at the Gold Strike that night, and on the upper floors they said it was rocking and rolling, thought the hail was going to knock the windows out and the building had a nice sway to it.

Hopefully it is designed to sway, could have been bad news otherwise possibly!

Brian, I wouldn't put it past any one of them to be selling our numbers to these damn telemarketers with the way most of them have lost so much business from the US market now...so they are trying to compensate for that loss thru selling list's which can be quite lucrative in todays business climate...would not put it past them at all !!

Yeah I believe the sway is built in. Think they built all the hotels there above earthquake standards. Can't forget the sleeping giant right up the river, its been rumbling a bit latley, maybe the gigantic hole straight to hell is finally going to open up and swallow Harrah's headquarters in Memphis.:thumbsup:

It's bad enough getting junk & scam faxes (yeah, the Nigerians know how to use a FAX machine, too :rolleyes:), and land line telemarketers -- I'm on the do not call list both at home and at work, while that helped slow down the junk calls, the faxes didn't miss a beat.

But to me, it's a hundred times worse getting cell phone junk calls as so many of us have limited minutes of use each month. And my cell phone co. counts per minute for incoming as well as outgoing -- I guess most do.

I wonder if there is an implicit clause in the sign up TCs that says we agree to allow them to share our info with others? Thank goodness I haven't gotten any of these calls yet. Feel sorry for the first poor bastard that gets ahold of me. He/she isn't gonna like what I have to say about their mama!!LOL

I got the first call I had ever received from these sorry SOB's on Friday, after I figured out what the idiot wanted I told him that if he ever called here again I would track his sorry ass down and put a major hurting on him !!......he then proceeded to hang up the phone real quick.....you guys think I went too far ??? :D ,,,, he just caught me at the wrong damn time I guess and to beat it all I have a non-published private number so I know it had to be one of the casinos that has sold my info...are they really getting that damn hard up for money now that they have to sell our info to make a few bucks...:mad:

I totally agree. I get the same exact calls. I have only an unlisted cell phone. Dropped the landline a few years ago. But these calls are from someone with Indian/Pakistani accent. Can be aggravating. I have pleaded with them to take me off their call list. This request seems to work for a short time then the calls start again. Not sure if its the call is from the same person each time?

I'm telling you it's really fishy. The numbers they call from you can pop in google and they come up as calling all kinds of people with the same line of BS. If you reverse look the number up it usually comes back to unlisted but you call it back and it says disconnected.

I'd like to have one of those caller ID spoofers, I'd call all my friends using an FBI name and number and tell them I'm investagating them for child porn and they better destroy their computer before I get there in 10 minutes. See how many of them are buying new computers the next day. :D

Be warned though:

Legislation

On June 27, 2007, the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation passed S.704, a bill that would make it a crime to spoof caller ID. Dubbed the "Truth in Caller ID Act of 2007", the bill would outlaw causing "any caller identification service to transmit misleading or inaccurate caller identification information" via "any telecommunications service or IP-enabled voice service". Law enforcement is exempted from the rule. A similar bill, HR251, was recently introduced and passed in the House of Representatives, making it a real possibility of becoming law. It has been referred to the same Senate committee that approved S.704; that committee has not yet acted on it, nor has the Senate bill been sent to the floor. [1] [2]
