Default What household item can I use to make a record loud noise into the phone?

I have had it with being polite to this company. I have asked them to
put me on the do not call list. I have my number on the national do
not call list. I have reported the number to web site. They still
call.

At first, they were calling with a number that would come up on the
caller ID. Now they call with unknown caller. It is from some
consumer credit company. They give a recorded message and press 1 to
find out how to lower your rates.

I wait until an operator answers. When I politely ask to be put on
the do not call list they hang up. One guy was polite, and said he
would add my number to the no call list.

They still call.

Boating stores sell aerosol handheld horns. Holy ****. The OP had better
have some serious hearing protection. Even outdoors, they hurt.

Most of these people work in sweatshops outside the country, very often in
India, the "do not call list" means nothing, hurting the person's ears won't
help, the next one will take over when the computer assigns your number to
him. I find an answering machine helps, when we see an 800 type number or
blocked caller with unknown number we let it take the call. In fact the
machine will cut off a blocked caller with an unknown number and force them
to respond to the answering machine immediately. They hang up immediately.

In fact one called right now as I type this reply. We get about 10 to 20 a
day, nothing you can say or do will stop them, so we don't even bother to
talk to them.

We have the same problem. Though I've registered with the Telephone
Preference Service (TPS) here in the UK, we continue to get calls from
overseas - predominantly mainland Europe and US, though also from India.
Due to the time difference between UK and US, I now will not respond to
any calls between 18.00 and 21.00 hrs UK because most are from
"Investment Advisors" in the US - I just leave the ansafone to do its
thing! India - it's usually first thing in the morning - but I've gone
out to work. Europe - during my daytime but I'm at work. My main problem
now is taking a day's holiday and being at home!

Not a lot you can do as most are probably off shore. I get faxes from
Cancun for vacations. Getting more junk faxes than real faxes, I keep
machine off line.

My attitude is to try to waste their time and money. I call back 800
numbers because it costs them as does any time you spend cussing them
out. If I have a lot of spare time, I feign interest. I've also told
operators to get a legitimate job where they do not annoy people.
If we all did this, economics would cause them to cease.

For the solicitors like charities that are allowed to call, my standard
answer is that I am retired on fixed income and cannot afford to give.

Also, I refuse to answer surveys.

Always assume anyone that calls you that you do not know is lying to you

Got fax software on your computer? Schedule it to call their 800 number
every 60 seconds from the time you go to bed till the time you wake up.

Before the do-not-call-list, I had my answering machine message start with the
tones that you hear when you dial a disconnected number. "Beep-boop-beep -
delay - hello- please leave a message". Supposedly, the auto dialers mark the
number as invalid and remove it. It did seem to make a significant difference
over time.

Google for sit.wav. I easily downloaded it, and just played it through my
computer speakers as I recorded the message.

Google telezapper. $19.99. Or place the sit tones as the first thing on your
answering machine.
IF you have a caller ID compliant modem, there is also software that will
recognize out of area calls and play the SIT tones for you.

There are also gadgets that intercepts all phone calls and the caller has to
enter in a password to be let thru.
IF you didnt give out the password, tough.

moron. You can't make the sound at the other louder by being louder
at your end. It is like thinking that you can turn a 60's VW bug
into an F1 racer by dropping an anvil on the accelerator pedal.

About all you can do with such harassment is get a new phone number.

Obviously that's not completely true. A regular volume voice will
sound louder than a whisper. But it's true that there is a certain
amount of dB compression on that the signal goes through. IOW, the
dynamic range of the telephone is fairly low.

you can't. all phones got decibel limiters on them. scream as loud as
you want, but it only comes out their end at a certain volume.

tell them that you answering them is a service, billable at $1000 per
minute, 3 minutes minimum. (make sure to record this), send it to a
lawyer and have the lawyer send them a bill.

I got 'em to stop calling, after finding a message from them every
single day when I got home from work.

I called the toll free number they left, and I read them the riot act.
Very loud, very demanding, and extraordinarily profane. Beat the woman
who answered into a puddle of jello, I imagine. That was a month ago,
and I haven't heard a peep since.

Their time is money - they need to move on as soon as possible.

So -- cut them off right away and say you REALLY want to hear about their
product but have to clear up something first, so hold on to the line.

Then put the phone down and walk away from it for five minutes.

If they are still there after five minutes, "appologize" for keeping them,
but also say you have to have them hold on again, for "just a minute".

Another five minutes should get rid of them.


And best of all... your number will likely be put on a "don't call
because they waste your time" list.

Who would you send it to, their not going to give you an address. Most use
800 numbers that are only one way, you cannot dial them back, or they use
fake numbers. I often get this number on my display 000 000 0000. They are
calling through a Skype or internet connection from overseas. Changing your
phone number won't help, as they are not dialing you specifically, their
computer just keeps trying random or sequential numbers untill someone
answers then it feeds it to a person who gives his spiel to you.

Normally telephone companies compress the signal so much that even a
loud noise (referee's whistle, e.g.) comes out very softly on the other
end. The answering machine usually screens our calls. On the rare
occasions I pick up first, right after the salesperson says "how are
you" and I say "fine," I just lay the receiver down and walk away for a

I have had it with being polite to this company. I have asked them to
put me on the do not call list. I have my number on the national do
not call list. I have reported the number to web site. They still
call.

At first, they were calling with a number that would come up on the
caller ID. Now they call with unknown caller. It is from some
consumer credit company. They give a recorded message and press 1 to
find out how to lower your rates.

I wait until an operator answers. When I politely ask to be put on
the do not call list they hang up. One guy was polite, and said he
would add my number to the no call list.

They still call.

Except there are an essentially infinite number of others in the wings.
Other than reporting the offending company to regulators, there's little
can do other than simply just hang it up that will have any real effect.

Boating stores sell aerosol handheld horns. Holy ****. The OP had better
have some serious hearing protection. Even outdoors, they hurt.-


Yeah, but the phone system won't transmit that loud. There just isn't
enough wattage.

moron

The only person it can deafen is you. A phone line has a signal to noise ratio
of less than 30db. Talking a little loud or using the airhorn will sound the
same at the other end.

Hi,

Looks like you have a repeat caller problem. The gooding thing to know
is bad data is difficult to strip from a database. So this is what you
do.

You need to make a new fake person. Mr. Doughnut, who lives at a new
fake address. Pick a road in the same zip code (not your road), and
make up a house number which no one has, say 1502 on a road where the
house numbers only go up to 100 say. Now also make up a Social
Security number with the right number of digits. Make sure that this
new person is over 21 years old and has an income of say 30,000 USD.

But give them your real phone number.

They will add you as a new happy subsciber. And take your number off
their call list ..... They will probablly check your SSN etc, and
discover that it is not correct. They may phone you back. Just keep
reafirming the details when they do.

They may keep calling, but hopefully less .... and just think of all
the dollars they will spend trying to sort gthe mess out. And it is
difficult to strip the data from their database ... because that data
is very believable ..... you can even pretend to be a very desperate
pewrson etc ... oh the fun and games.

Good luck ....

Warmest regards, Mike.

"PFFFFT!!!! BEEP! BOOP! BEEP! We're sorry, but the call you are making
contains no acceptable content. Please hang up and don't try again.
This is a recording." :-)

Actually there's a few callers I'd like to give such a message to.
Anyone know of an answering machine that uses caller ID to give a
certain message to only selected callers?
