Default Shithead in need of the old school Greatlakes treatment.

So, for the last two days, I've been getting calls from some fuckiing slurp-ee merchant pretending to be from the Social Security Administration. I blew it off at first, but after he called a dozen times yesterday afternoon and left a bunch of computer generated voicemails, I'd had enough. Reported the number to the office of the Inspector General for the SSA. So far tonight, I've had two voicemails. So, if anyone is feeling creative, or has any other diabolical ideas to keep this goat fucker busy, here's the numbers he's using.

1-800-216-0913 (the most frequent one)
1-866-970-7300 (the one he used for the first 4 or 5 calls yesterday)

I don't know if there's any service out there that you can subscribe these to, to get him inundated with bullshit calls, but figured I'd check here first.

I had this happen to me before. I reported him to the FCC IIRC.

I finally got him to stop calling me when I just would see how long I could get him to stay on the line, and how many of his "managers" I could get up the ladder with. He would just mute the line for a few seconds, change his bullshit accent slightly and use another american name. He had most of my information, except the 3 digits on the back of the CC he was trying to get to ship me a gift card for $250 for walmart.

Once I figured out what he was after, I got to have my fun. Got him so frustrated That he started cursing me, so I started cursing back. He finally hung up and never called again.

I've been getting a lot of odd calls lately as well. If I find its the same number calling me every time I block it through that option on my phone.

Are you adding numbers to block to one contact?
If yes, each time you edit that contact, the contact becomes unblocked. You have to specifically re block the contact again. Stupid annoying quirk in phone software.

In my case I have the option to just block a number. No contact required.

I was out with a customer that got one of these, he slowly kept talking dirtier and dirtier. It went on awhile before the dude on the other end realized what was happening.

It was a bit awkward for me though

I'd call and harass them for you, but then my number will added to their call list. I already get 6-8 calls a day from the 'warranty' department, don't need anymore.

I've done that before. Put the number in an ad for free scrap.

We passed the cursing at each other the first day. I asked if he had a fucking slurp-ee machine to fix, or was it just a slow day at the quik-e-mart.

I usually just ask, in a whispery lisp, "what are you wearing?''

You could approach it from a super excited "Thank God you called, my car's about to die!"

Then go into great details about how awful your car is and how much sawdust you cram in the motor to keep it running and lay out every crazy hillbilly repair tactic you can think of that they are going to warranty for FREE!!

Then when they ask you for payment information ask them if they take a check, describe how awful your credit is and how many banks you're dodging from bouncing checks and not paying credit cards.

I heard that when Scottie told them he had a 1969 Saab, they hung up.

The recording they leave on the voicemail is pretty comical. Imagine a computer program that speaks in an American accent, yet has the dialog written by someone who doesn't speak English very well at all. Then when you call the number back, someone who literally sounds like Apu from the Simpson's says "Thank you for calling the Social Security Administration"

Lol, not surprised. Haven't heard from them since the second day after I reported them. Next time, they'll be getting the free scrap ad in the Flint Craigslist. Probably jinx myself by saying, but it's been kind of quiet on the bullshit phone call front lately. Still get the recording about my last chance to lower my interest rate every other day or so, but not much I can do about that one. They still piggyback off of a different local number every time they call.
