FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - April 2018

We had two full moons in March (as we did in January).  We call this (two full moons in a month) a blue moon.  I just learned that. All this time I never gave much thought to the song.  I wonder what you call it when a telemarketer calls more than twenty times a day.

3 April 2018
  844-791-7356 - Another return caller, this number was flagged by my phone last month.  Like Jesus rising from the dead, a blocked number rises and still calls.  This time Call Protect intercepted the call.  Science and technology at your service.

I finally did a search for the number. It appears to be a toll-free number, with links to spam, telemarketer, Spectrum, suspicious spam, etc. Fuck you!

And, if it is Spectrum trying to up sell their bundle for $29 for internet, cable, landline...EACH.  Fuck you, too!

NOTE:  I was on a business trip for a few days. The phone was still on in case there was an emergency back at the ranch.  Little to my surprise, I had a few calls.

  433-327-9049 Aberdeen, MD - Oh fun, we get to play this game again.  One....

  433-327-9049 Aberdeen, MD  - Fourteen.  Fourteen calls by this number.  But here is something interesting.

  433-327-9049 Aberdeen, MD
Notice how the first call came through, but additional calls were intercepted by Call Protect.  Oh, here are the other calls from the same number.

  433-327-9049 Aberdeen, MD
 They also left a message. Since it is tax season...you guessed it...it was another one of those "the authorities are at your residence"calls.  The fun part is, my phone attempts to transcribe this message.  Take a look.

  433-327-9049 Aberdeen, MD
One more thing.  Fuck you!

  310-843-2415 Beverly Hills, CA - Oh, you thought we were done?  Nope, we are still on Thursday,  4 April.  Fuck you!

  310-849-9946  Beverly Hills, CA - If you have been following along, you should know this number.  Still calling.  Fuck you!

  310-849-2509  Beverly Hills, CA - If you are keeping score, that is seventeen calls in one day.  Fuck you!

  467-67 - Well, at least this was not a 'call'.  This one came via text.

So they are basically spamming me, asking me if I want to use my car as a mobile spam device.  Fuck you!

9 April 2019
  310-849-7198  Beverly Hills, CA - Back from the business trip and without missing a beat, another spoofed number from Beverly Hills.  Fuck you!

13 April 2018
 323-792-1167  Los Angeles, CA - Good old phone marked this as a telemarketer. Telemarketer or not,  do you really think I am going to answer the phone on Friday the 13th?  Shit, the call could be coming from inside the house. Fuck you!

  215-402-5060  Springfield, PA - Oh, this on e is good.  Again, this was marked as 'telemarketer'.  So, obviously, I ignored it.  Then I noticed that a message was left.  This lead to a little digging on the internet machine.  I found this entry:
Received a call to our cell VM left was "... MaryAnn Johnson from Client Care" She was following up on a letter sent about discounted prescription benefits; provided a reference number: MD008121 and we should call back at 877-833-0642.
  Yep, that is exactly what I got.  Cold calling people with the same reference number and call back number from many reports.  Obviously, a scam.  Fuck you!

19 April 2018
  310-849-4836  Beverly Hills, CA - We all know this is a spoofed number.  Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel.  Fuck you!
