"The Sheriff's Office Will Be There To Arrest You In 45 Minutes. "

I get those calls a lot.  Sometimes I tell them, good, I want free food and shelter can you hurry, I'm hungry right now.

 

I got a call offering help paying off my student loans,  which I had paid off in the '80s, on an evening when I just couldn't get to sleep. 

 

I strung the guy along for about 10 minutes,  got past the "initial screening for gullibility" and got transferred up the line.  I  strung that guy along for close to half an hour and finally got sleepy.   So I laughed,  told the guy I had been feeding him a pack of lies because I was bored and couldn't sleep.   He got mad at me for "wasting his time. "

A couple of days ago I got a call from a scammer with a heavy accent, "Have you received your new Medicare Card?" 

I asked, "Where are you calling from?  Your accent sounds like you are calling from India."  

Scammer: "Oh no.  I'm....one moment...." 

CLICK.  I hung up.

"The Sheriff's office (or police or whoever) will be there in 45 minutes to arrest you."
"Good, tell them to go into my office and bring the thermos I left sitting on my desk. It's right behind the name plate that says CAPTAIN."
Click.

Just think how many Indian people are employed by these scammers!  I'm surprised the captain didn't identify herself as a police officer.  Bet that would have resulted in a rapid "click".

I used to play with them, but now that we get about 15-20 of these robo calls a day, I don't answer the phone any more. If you want me, leave a message. The caller ID on my phone was made by one of those Indians I think, I can't understand a thing she says. Turn off the ringer and check the phone now and again.

I have Comcast VOIP and leave my voice mailbox perpetually full.
NoMoRobo.com is a free blocking service on land lines.
You get 1 ring, then gone.

I also have a whitelist on the wall by the phone.
If their CallerID does not identify them, I have no need to talk to them.
If you want to speak with me, fix your CallerID.
