I only WISH I got more calls, these telemarketers are prime referral prospects. They all have dead end jobs working for minimum wage and live in the USA, what more could you ask for? If getting called bugs you, get a Magic Jack just for Internet use and turn the ringer off so everything goes to voice mail.

I'm gonna have to give that a try.  :thumbsup:

I have received a couple of calls, but i usually just let my calls go to voice mail. If they keep calling i just block the number which is very easy to do on my Cell phone. It's usually just someone trying to sell something.

I hate when telemarketers call, BUT I have found out a couple of months ago if you start singing to them while they talk, they hang up. HAHA I think it is hilarious and I get to practice on my hmmm singing skills ::)

i get 4 or 5 calls a day! if they come in the morning i don't really care because i'm just on here or playing with my daughter. but i hate when they call in the evenings and i'm helping my son with homework, trying to make dinner or trying to eat dinner. the worst part is the one's that call and take forever to tell you who they are or where they're calling from. i've often wondered if they make more for keeping us on the phone longer. i won't be rude if you just say i'm so and so calling from here to offer this, because then i can quickly say sorry not interested. but when they drag it out asking how you are and other trivial questions, you can be certain they're going to get an unpleasant and sometimes loud response. that's the one downside from doing these surveys and offers!

I haven't gotten any calls except from Credit Report.com.  I asked to be removed from their list and they haven't called back since.  They were calling several times a day and left no message.  Very annoying!

i have gotten a few, but not many. *knock on wood* lol. i usually just ignore any numbers i don't recognize, so it's not a huge problem.

I didn't get any phone calls so don't worrey about it, even if they called you , you can always get an excuse to hang up so it's not a big deal

 :bunny:

The only phone calls that I got were when I signed up for offers that involved auto insurance and life insurance - from what I can see here and from other sites that I participate in - it seems like insurance are the only offers that ever produce phone calls.  VJ

I have yet to receive any phone calls. I'm expecting some to be realistic, but hoping they stay minimal and are fairly reasonable with removing me from the list. I've had very few experiences where a simple "Please remove me from your list," failed to stop the calls.
