Cheap and easy fun...

Ever dream about owning some exotic car or rv?

Like to brag about it?

Easy!

When they call about the warranty play along.

Push 1 and a human answers wanting make and model.

Sometimes I tell them since they called me it should be on their screen but they claim call center and just shows up, I return with "if their system is that stupid how could I ever process a claim" and they usually hang up, we waste their time but calls stop for awhile.

When they start again I have fun, maybe a mustang, lambo or Prevost, just give year make and model.

Since they allegedly do not know anything make up a name like Marge Arine

It is amazing what these folks may believe.

Make up a credit card, use a valid first 4 numbers as that needs to work to show some bank, but then any 4 numbers 3 more times with other made up data.

At some point they may hang up and maybe your number flagged to avoid.

So that's how they got my credit card info! Somebody trying to make up one just happens to pick mine, just my luck! I was wondering how I ended up with an extended warranty on a 2022 Bugatti La Voiture Noire!

I wish that worked, but the only thing that works for me is to let it ring. If it's someone who I know they will leave a voice mail! Otherwise, I just block the number as spam!

When I don't recognize a number I answer the phone " Hello, county jail". Next thing I hear is CLICK.
One time it actually was the state police assn. soliciting donations. The man said that was one he'd never heard before and hung up.

I listened to the whole computer voiced spiel about how I should have already received a notice in the mail and this was my final chance and then I pressed 1 and waited for someone to come on the line. I waited until they went through the spiel again and then asked which car they had sent the notice about. They hung up.
After toying with them for awhile, now when I see a number I don't recognize, I hit accept call on my fax machine. Seems to work because I get a lot fewer calls these days.
