Okay, those of you who know me, know that I got a cell phone "kicking and screaming!" I didn't really want one, but got convinced that the pros outweighed the cons of having one.
So I've got this blasted thing and on my command, NO ONE that knows me calls me unless it's an emergency...which is the way I want it.
But I keep getting calls...
and I expect the calls from my cell phone company trying to get me to waste my units to sell me more features for my phone. I get that...everyone is out to make a buck. I don't answer them and I delete their messages.
The calls that are really ticking me off are the ones from Mortgage companies. I don't answer these calls. They leave a really long message on my voice mail. AND here's the Kicker... The say that I contacted them... "ummm... I DON'T THINK SO!" "Why on earth would I:
a) contact a mortgage company to refinance my home when intrest rates are going up???
b) give out my cell phone number when I have a perfectly good land line number?"
I have both my land line and my cell numbers on the Do Not Call list...but I think the "you contacted us" part of the message is there way of getting around that. (btw: I don't pick up my messages from my cell. I use my land line and that doesn't cost me anything.)
I need to find a way to report them... but I'm sure that since it's a different company each time that nothing will be done.
Sorry for the rant... back to your regularly scheduled programming.
A friend of mine says I need to freeze my credit reports...but these people have no idea who I am. They haven't done any credit check...they are just "cold calling" numbers and leaving messages...hoping that someone somewhere out there wants to refinance.
I don't answer, I won't answer unless your number pops up as one stored in my cell.
