Oh, you robo-calls. You spammy, scammy robo-calls.
How I loathe you.
It isn’t enough that I get multiple calls every week from unknown numbers, and that the callers usually don’t leave messages, and so when I check one of the reverse phone lookup sites I find — not surprisingly — the numbers have long lists of comments calling them out as spammers and scammers.
And when they do leave messages, they’re fearmongering pieces of crap — I mean, the threat of a lawsuit by the Infernal Revenue Service can strike fear into the strongest heart. And you know there are people who will call the number back and, out of that fear, buy into whatever scam if being sold that week.
Sadly, even if you reported this to the Infernal Revenue Service, I’m betting they’re so short on staff and funding they can’t investigate the scammers. Who will, no doubt, change phone numbers as needed and go right on stealing money, and time, and peace of mind. If I believed in hell, there would be a special place in it for people like these.
I’m just grateful for reverse lookup, and people who leave informative comments. 🙂
