Got this call yesterday, October 20th at 2:45 p.m. As many others have said, we don't pick up the phone (unless by accident), when we don't recognize the number. My mantra: "If it's legitmate and important, they'll leave a message."
Actually, the person who posted as "Unlucky Winner" on Oct. 6, has the best advice (thank you for all you wrote!)--go back and re-read that. If you're hesitant about clicking on a link, go to Consumers Union directly (www.consumersunion.org) and then scroll down to End Robo calls.
I got this call at 8 am on my landline, left no message. I get these calls all the time on my cell phone and so does my husband. Sometimes I answer the call but do not say anything at least that way it costs them something for the call (makes me feel better). This is not the only
number that calls, they come from all over and when I block the numbers new ones come up it's endless and annoying. All my numbers are on the DO NOT CALL LIST.
Answered call....computer voice says she's from the warranty company advising me my warranty is about to expire. No mention of what the warranty might be for which is hilarious, and a no-brainer for me to just say "no" when prompted to ask what my options were. Just another pain-in-the-a** scam.
