I tried my "tech department" trick on another telemarketer, but it doesn't work anymore. This is actually the third one this year that I tried this on (I get several calls a week, but most of the time I'm busy working to do this). And I always know when it's them calling because the caller ID is almost the same number as my phone with only two digits off.
I have a feeling that these guys are being trained about the "tech department" trick now. Each time I tried this they just hang up right away. Oh well. #telemarketing #scam #scammers
