Who sold my phone #


Court

Recommended Posts

Did GM or Ally bank sell my phone #? My phone has been nice and quiet for the last 5 to 10 years. Now a month after I buy a new Chevy truck through Ally bank, my phone wont stop ringing from all the tele marketers! This kinda hacks me off! Good news is that I have won every single contest that I never entered! Did this happen to anyone else after buying GM through Ally ( the new GMAC)?

Didn't ever use Ally bank but if you register your phone number with the National Do Not Call listing you can stop the calls. The registry keep your number listed for 5 years at a time. Saved me the ~20 calls a day I would get from telemarketers. Just Google National Do Not Call and it should pop right up.

Call me crazy but i actually like when they call. I love messing with them!

Had one yesterday that called and said i won a home security system. I stopped the guy immediately and said i allready own one.. He's a very pissed off pitbull that protects my house just perfect!

The guy on the other end didnt know how to respond and just said thankyou for your time. :lol:

The do not call list doesn't work because 99% of the ones calling, esp on your cell are scam artists. I've gotten the home security one 3 times now and it's always the same person. Last time I told him I had a security system by a company called Mossberg. He said he never heard of them. I told him it was a shotgun I use to shoot people. He hung up. :lol:

Unfortunately I still get those. I must admit that some are pretty comically idiotic.

I have started getting them on my home phone and cell back to back, so at first I got pissed and then I started asking them questions ie what is the name of your company? Which one of my credit cards are you with? can I have your name and a call back number incase we get disconnected? And they usually hang up before I get this far but the way I see it if they are tied up with me asking them questions they can't scam anyone else!!! Since I started doing this the number of calls has fallen off again. :jester:

I was about to write how useless and ineffective the "do not call" list is, but it appears a few others beat me to it. At least my lonely feeling is gone.....

I had one today that just left me scratching my head. He said that the internet connection that I had on my home number (the number he called) was very slow, and that he could fix that right up if I changed my ISP to be them. Problem is, my home voice number is Vonage. Do you think I could get him to understand that the phone circuit that he was actually connected to, is not a real number/circuit on the hard wire system, therefore, not possible to install or reconfigure the DSL connection/service.

In a world of technology its easy to obtain phone numbers,addresses and so fourth...i get calls offering me an extended warranty on my 04 GMT with 126k miles on it monthly...i also get text messages offering me "a free 1000$ bucks"...don't forget the free vacations too...its just the bi product of 75% of societys day to day transactions taking place online
