Collectively, we can stop this. We're all getting calls from this guy, "Rob," and others, who are trying to promote their business, or just scam us, whatever. They rely on some tiny percentage that will "go for the bait." This guy, "Rob," admits he doesn't care if a number is on the Do Not Call Registry!!! I just talked with Rob. (It was easy, read on.) I explained that he called my number despite the fact that it is listed with the federal Do Not Call registry. He said he gets his numbers from internet sources, and my number must be a business number. We talked about this for a while, and it turns out, Rob could not care less if your number is on the Do Not Call registry. His "excuse" is, well, that number was found on the internet, and is (or was) associated with a business. If you've had your telephone number for just a few years, perhaps it was associated with a business- at one time. So he (and others) may call. And the federal DO NOT CALL registry? According to Rob, it doesn't apply, if your number was found on the internet. So.... since Rob won't abide by the Do Not Call registry, let's hound him a bit, and make him question his practices. Here's how I actually spoke with "Rob." I simply called the number that was showing on my caller ID: 1 248 630-4335. During the recording, I pressed 0. That took me to "Rob's" voice mail box, where I left a very polite message, asking that someone please call back, and left my number. Within a couple of minutes, Rob called. He was polite, at first, but then became agitated when I explained that the Do Not Call registry DOES APPLY to numbers that are not associated with a business. (He dismisses that fact.) By the way, the number listed when Rob called back was 586 623-5523. This appears to go to the same voice mail box as pressing 0 from the caller ID number. I suggest we call this number and leave polite messages asking for a return call. When Rob calls back, express your frustration.
This number haas called me multiple times now.
