By Tina York You are exactly right, you can not depend on the no call list. They have started calling my cell the last few months.
I have a routine, I add them to the block list in my cell phone immediately. I currently have over 200. They will call you at night and even on Sundays.
They are clever enough that the calls are showing as local numbers at times.
I advise anyone to just hang up and block them immediately and let your elderly family members know of this as well.
Also, a family member of mine actually had a pop up on her computer to show that she was getting a virus and better call to get it removed immediately.
Bless her heart, she called and was charged over $300.00 dollars to get the virus removed.
A virus that she didn't even have to start with as her computer was already protected by McAfee virus protection.
When she informed me about it, I made it my personal goal to get every penny of her money back. After a week of me calling them, I'm glad to say they agreed to put every single penny back in her account.
Probably because I turned the tables on them and harassed them. That was a rare case because so many people don't get their money back.
Don't only use caution on the phone but on your computer; and always look outside before answering the door as scammers are on the streets as well.
God bless. - Tina York
