Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 121-124

Issue 121-124

Go back in time for this one.  Last we left off we were in between issues of sorts.  Here are the parts 'missing' from previous post...that were already shipped to us a while back.

Issue 121- Left Reactor Vent

Contents of Issue 121

The vents is one the first things you will notice on the Time Machine.  It changes the silhouette of the stock DeLorean and immediately makes it a Time Machine.  Glad we did not have to 'assemble' separate panels to get the vents.

Issue 122 - Left Vent Vanes

Contents of Issue 122

The horizontal vanes help cool the vents.  Wait, looks like we have a new screw, the NP!

Issue 123 - Right Reactor Vent

Contents of Issue 123

Same as the left side, we do with the right.

Issue 124 - Right Vent Vanes

Contents of Issue 124

Ditto.

Now, we go back to previous shipment to work on 125 and 126.  You know what, it looks like we have completed the basic Time Machine.  Looking around, I do not notice any areas that are missing details.  So, I am curious as to what the other issues have in store.  I believe there should be four more issues (130), and an additional 25-30 issues for parts of the Part III hood box and train tracks.

This is where we are at now.  Snapped these photos just at sunset, so we have a little golden hour lighting. 

Build up to 126

Yes, that is a floor mat.

Still need to put the mirrors and center caps back on.  But will wait until the build is complete and in a case before we finalize everything.

Here is your screw count up to Issue 126:

Screw count:  108-AP, 25-BP, 2-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 4-EP, 22-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 4-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 22-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM, 5-NP

to be continued...

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 119, 120, 125, 126

 

Issues 119, 120, 125, 126

Well, looks like the skipped some issues. Oh wait, spoiler alert, I received the shipment for 121-124 a while back.  We will just deal with this current shipment in this post.  Then we will go back (in time) and talk about the other shipment in a future post.

Issue 119 - Vent Exhaust

Parts for Issue 119

The vent exhaust is very hidden on the actual car, but they are there...so they are here.  These are the guys responsible for the venting smoke after the Time Machine arrives at a destination time.

We also have some photo etched parts to get that perforated look at the end of the exhaust.

Issue 120 - Vent Hoses

Parts for 120

These six hoses connect the oil separators to the vents.  These are just press fit in, no screws needed.

Here is were we go to the next shipment.  But since we make up the rules as we go, we are going to finish talking about this shipment then continue on the next post with the other parts. So the next two sets of parts will not be assembled until the we do the other four.  There will not be a screw count at the end of this post.  Hang in there.  It makes sense in our heads, just go along.

Issue 125 - Vent Cable

Parts for 125

Cables that from the vent to the rear of the back plate.  Plus you get strips of stickers to wrap around some hoses.  Fun times!  Although, the application of these stickers on hoses/cables already mounted is quite difficult.  Again, small hands and tweezers help.  Still have not found my tweezers.

Issue 126 - Vent Cowls

Parts for 126

The vent cowls is exactly how the vents are finished off on the real car.  They hook underneath the top of the rear fascia and complete the vents.  

Fun Fact:  In Part II, when the (fiberglass) Time Machine is landing in the alley, you can see that someone forgot to mount these pieces on the vent.

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 115-118

Here we go another box.  This one feels really light.

Issues 115-118

This shipment contains minimal parts.  Opening the box to check if everything is there, I found that the parts for 116 were missing.  But, I got two sets of parts for 118.  The magazines were all accounted for.  A quick call to customer service and replacement parts were sent.  In the meantime, we did not get started on building, since I may 'block' and area if I skip ahead in the build.

Issue 115 - Reactor Components

Contents of Issue 115

These parts are what is known as the Oil Separators and Crossover Tube.  Good detail in the parts, easy to assemble.  Pretty straight forward.

Issue 116 - Reactor Cables

Contents of Issue 116

These were the parts that were missing the the initial shipment.  I mean, it is just four cables, that is it.   I could see this being missed while packing the box.  This too, was as normal, in a box.  Kinda a waste, as a packing slip and this baggie were the only things in the box, along with a lot air bags for packing.  Anyway, we have the parts and we can build.

This is a rare Issue with no screws.  Simply plug in the cables in the holes.  Helps to have small hands or tweezers.  Ugh, I misplaced my tweezers.

Issue 117 - Reactor Hoses 

Contents of Issue 117

Another issue assembled without the use of screws.  The small hose connect the oil separators to the base of the reactor chamber while the longer hose connects to the Janitrol unit to the back of the rear wall.

Issue 118 - Hoses and T-195

Contents of Issue 118

So, I have an extra set of these.  Some of the final details of the reactor area on the rear deck.  

While only two issues in this shipment had screws, we still have screws.  

Screw count:  105-AP, 25-BP, 2-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 4-EP, 20-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 3-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 21-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - November 2020

Starting out the new month with a time change.  Sleep schedule will be wonky for about a week.  Seems like the change of time may have affected some robots.  Took about two days for the our first call of the month.

3 November 2020
  714-908-2962  Midway City, CA -  This has spoofed number written all over it.  I wonder if this is a polling call.  Little late, but as mentioned many times, time change messed with everything.  Fuck you!

4 November 2020
  949-570-8836  Irvine, CA - Well, election is over.  We are still waiting for results as of this call.  So, I wonder what this call is about.  Very unlikely to be a wrong number, highly likely a spoofed call.  Fuck you!

5 November 2020
    714-523-7287  Buena Park, CA - This call came in at nearly 9PM.  Who the fuck calls this late?  Have you seen me?  If anyone needs their beauty sleep, it is me.  

Update:  A voicemail was left

562-888-3765

Note that the number of origin is different from the call back number.  Of course, we did a quick search of the call back number.  This message has been left on multiple voicemails, while the origin number differs, the call back number is the same. Fuck you!

6 November 2020
  800-692-7753 - Be careful of this one.  Those sneaky telemarketers, they are spoofing this number from Apple and trying to trick you into thinking there is a data breach.  Here is a recent article on the scam


Fuck you!

  800-692-7753 - Wait, they cold called twice.  Fuck you, again

9 November 2020
  310-849-3121 - Beverly Hills, CA - Classic hits of telemarketing.  This call comes from our familiar friends in Beverly Hills.  Perhaps you remember this oldie, too...fuck you!

10 November 2020
  310-426-9695  El Segundo, CA - Looks like calls are coming in from California this month.  Patiently waiting for the next call from some place other than California.  Fuck you!

12 November 2020
  510-564-2455  Oakland, CA - Keeping up with the California calls, we got one from the East Bay, in the city of Oakland.  Oakland is one of those rare sports cities that had baseball and football in the same stadium...and basketball and hockey literally right across the parking lot.  Concerts could be held indoors at the arena or outdoors at the stadium.  Well, most of those teams are gone and with this pandemic, nothing is happening.  Looks like you already done got fucked.

  310-555-2745  Los Angeles, CA - Holy shit! A call from a 555 number.  I wonder what movie is calling me.  Maybe it is a Tarantino film, then I could pick up an appropriately say, "Fuck you!"

17 November 2020
  310-504-5248  Redondo Beach, CA - This is your typical spoofed number.  So, fuck you!

18 November 2020
  310-504-5248  Redondo Beach, CA - Hey, I remember you.  You tried to call yesterday.  

310-504-5248

Even the phone as realised that this is a spam risk...and Call Protect came out of no where to intercept this.  Should I block this number or see if they try to call tomorrow?  Fuck you!
 
   310-504-5248  Redondo Beach, CA - It worked!  My experiment worked!  They called, again...of course they did.

310-504-5248

Two calls for today.  Might just let this experiment run for a while. How many times do you think they will call by the end of the week?  Place your bets.  So, far we are at three calls in two days.  Fuck you!

19 November 2020
  310-504-5248  Redondo Beach, CA - This is awesome!  Four calls in two days.  There is still plenty of time to call again, later in the day.  Fuck you!

  310-599-9463  Compton, CA - Pattern breaker.  Fuck you!

23 November 2020
  310-599-9705  Compton, CA - Another one from the 599 prefix.  Fuck you!

310-599-9705

  310-599-9705  Compton, CA - Okay, I guess this week's calls will be coming in from Compton.  Got an early start on Thursday, but two attempts to scam.  Fuck you!

28 November 2020
  803-677-7539  Columbia, SC - Here we go, holiday season means more packages are being delivered across the world.  This is a great time for predators and telemarketers to target people.

803-677-7539

Here is the simple breakdown of the the details of this text.  First of all, UPS is all capitalized.  You fucked up right there with a typo.  Any legit correspondence from any business would not misspell their own company name.  

Second minor detail, UPS Headquarters is located in Atlanta, GA.  Yeah, I totally had to look that up, So, if I could look it up, you could have, too. 

Third minor detail, UPS tracking numbers are 18 characters long.  You do not even have half of what is required to track a shipment.  I just could hear the uptalking and vocal fry in this text.  Fuck you!

29 November 2020
  marakrrstic@gmail.com - We know this is a made up email address for the sole purpose of sending these scams via text. 

marakrrstic@gmail.com

But, just in case, I will save this email address (along with others) for the next time some random site asks me sign up for their newsletter.  Fuck you!

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 110-113

We also received a useless binder.  You know, the one with the WRONG art.  One day, I will do a write up on how a certain licensor uses fan art and inaccurate artwork 'official' assets.  It is quite frustrating begin a fan, especially since I have informed and corrected them on multiple occasions. 

Issue 110-113

We have had this box of parts for about six months.  Finally, we can clear up some space and get to building these parts.  I guess we are kinda caught up, for now...finally!

Issue 110 - Spare Tire

Parts in Issue 110

Well, the spare tire in a DeLorean is not like this.  I wish it was, and every DeLorean owner wishes it was a full-sized front tire.  But, no. We get a steel donut.  

Fun fact:  The rear tire does not fit in the boot.  If you got a flat in the big rear tire, you had to transport it in the passenger compartment.  This is why DMC came up with the Luggage Rack.  More about carrying that rear wheel than carrying luggage.  

Okay, build your 'spare' and throw it in the front trunk.  Ah, but you get the windshield wipers with this issues.  They just plug in.  Actually, they rest in...with nothing to secure them in.  No screws, no friction, just place them where they need to be.

Issue 111 - Reactor Platform

Parts of Issue 111

As if this thing is not heavy enough, here is another solid chunk of metal.  This serves as the base, or platform, for all the cool junk on the rear deck of the Time Machine

The Janitrol looks a little off, and the orange tube looks a little red. 

Issue 112 - Reactor Components

Contents of Issue 112

Lots of little trinkets.  We have more wires, some tubes, and a bunch of rare parts.  Filling in that area above the engine.  We are about three-quarters of the way through this and we get introduced to a new screw in this issue, the SM.  

Issue 113 - Reactor Chamber

Parts of Issue 113
The reactor chamber.  Finally!  Remember back in Issue 004 , we had the top of the reactor?  That was all the way back in October of 2017.  Well, only 109 issues later, we get to the base...only took three years.

This is...or should be...the last LED light of the entire build.  Who know, they kinda sneak up on you, so there may be more.  The light illuminates the reactor chamber using the familiar tube to disperse the light.

Since we have Issue 114 from a previous shipment, we could continue.  These are the little heat sinks that go around the reactor chamber.  There are fifteen of them, take your time.

With that, we are caught up until our next shipment.

Here is your crew count:  104-AP, 29-BP, 4-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 19-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 4-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 910-KM, 2-LM, 22-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP, 1-RM, 1-SM

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 106-109

Another box of parts to build, here we go.

Issues 106-109

Issue 106 - Flux Bands, Rear

Contents of Issue 106

Last of the flux boxes.  The rear boxes contain another set of lights, lighting the flux bands from both sides of the optic fiber-like tubing.  The added bonus of the actual wires are hidden in plain sight as...cables.  Genius!

Issue 107 - Flux Bands, Rear Left

Contents of Issue 107

Issue 108 - Flux Bands, Rear Right

Contents of Issue 108

Tackling Issues 107 and 108 back to back is the way to go, as it gets easier once you place the flux tube and add the photo-etched bands.  Your lighting tubes may not be the desired length but as long as you can tuck them behind the bands, you should be good.  

Lots of little AP and IP screws in the flux band builds, so take your time. Once you are done, it is quite rewarding.  During the initial build and restoration, bending and tubes around the DeLorean body was said to be the hardest part.  Luckily for us, these are pre-molded parts with pre-drilled holes.

Issue 109 - Tachyon Field Generator 

Parts of Issue 109

More wires and more twist ties. This issue, we build what is commonly known as the "worm hole emitter", but officially known as the Tachyon Field Generator.  

Once you are complete with Issue 109, it will look like this:

Build up to Issue 109

Pretty exiting, as we reach, and pass, the 100 count on one of the screws.  

Screw count:  102-AP, 25-BP, 2-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 19-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 3-GP, 16-NM, 3-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 21-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM

01 October 2020

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - October 2020

Many of us have spent the last 200 days in quarantine.  While some are starving for contact with others, no one, not even during a pandemic, welcomes a telemarketer call.

1 October 2020

 216-294-8637  Cleveland, OH - Early morning text...and we are using this old trick:

216-294-8637

Again, so many flags.  They spell my name wrong. Close, but still wrong.  So, this is very unlikely my package.  "From 3/20/2020"?  Really?  That is almost 200 days ago.  What the fuck have you been doing for 200 days. I hope it is not something perishable in there.  That will surely stink up the place.  Fuck you!

  619-304-0824  San Diego, CA - Oh, this is going to be a long month.  Two calls coming in at the same time.  This one was silenced by the phone.  The next one...wait.  Forgot something.  Fuck you!

1Oct2020

  620-220-6524  Kansas - Where was I?  Oh, the second one was tagged as a Fraud Risk by Call Protect. 

This is interesting.  Did a search on this number, really to see its location.  I mean, we have dealt with rolling consecutive numbers on phone numbers...but consecutive area codes?  Had to find out.  Well, it is from Kansas.  That is not the interesting part...this is.  Guess what came up.  

It was fucking "Nicole", again.  That bitch is everywhere.  Remember last month's entry, I told this bitch to get on a flight to her next 'destination'?   Well, the cunt landed somewhere in Kansas.  I guess we will hear from her tomorrow from another 'secret location'.  Fuck you!

  310-849-5534  Beverly Hills, CA - The day is barely half over and we already received four calls...and it is only the first of the month.  Fuck you!

5 October 2020

  deanmoore198688@gmail.com - Early Monday morning, before 7AM text.  Other than a computer/robot, who formats their money like that?  "Hey Bob, could I borrow ten and zero cent for breakfast?  I'll pay you back."  Also, "make five hundred" what?  

deanmoore198688@gmail.com

Again, many issues with grammar, here.  Not very clear with information.  If you say 'hey', do you really need 'holla'?  Why is "HEY" and "NO" in all caps?  Fuck YOU!

7 October 2020

  310-849-9962  Beverly Hills, CA - This number seems familiar.  Did I not block this one?  Fuck you!

  310-849-6789  Beverly Hills, CA - I kinda always wanted a number that was easy to remember like "1234" or "5678".  This surely spoofed number has a great sequence in "6789".  You still suck donkey dick. So, fuck you!

8 October 2020

  424-363-8766  Redondo Beach, CA - We received two texts from this number.  Back to back, about 15 seconds apart.  They are the same text, most likely sent by an intern robot.  Total rookie mistake to send back to back texts.  

424-363-8766
Also rookie mistake, asking me to 'click on link' and not provide a fucking link.  How is one supposed to see this glorious 2 bed/3bath/1408 square foot property?  

Minutes away from the beach, you say?  Well, with a name like Redondo Beach, I hope it is close to the beach.  Of course depending your definition of "minutes", it could also mean hours.  We talking minutes by foot or jet fighter at full afterburner?

Who do I know looking to buy?  As a 'realtor' that is your fucking job.  I am just sitting here, rubbing one out and all of a sudden I am asked to do research for you.  I do not text random people and ask, 'who do you know craving french fries'.  Fuck you!

   771-441-9472  District of Columbia - Blocked by Call Protect and label as Spam Risk by the phone. Based on origin of number, this has to be some political jargon.  Fuck you!

15 October 2020
  864-278-2278 - Spartanburg, SC - How cool is the name Spartanburg for a city?  Even the phone number is cool, rolling off the tongue with ease, two-seven-eight...two-two-seven-eight.  But, that is about all you got going for you.  Fuck you!

20 October 2020
  216-327-8266  Cleveland, OH - They are trying to sell me something.  Not enough details for me to click the link

216-327-8266
Could they be talking about penis size?  Pretty sure I am already a small.  Who has a XXL penis, and why would you go down that many sizes in that short of time?  I really should start sending replying to these texts with dick pics.  Fuck you!

22 October 2020
  562-817-5817  Compton, CA - One advantage of having a long outgoing message, robots get confused and are unable to leave a complete message.  Also, setting your phone to ignore calls that are not on your phone list is awesome.  Fuck you!

24 October 2020
  216-868-1896  Cleveland, OH - What is up with these texts coming from Cleveland?

216-868-1896
This is a change from the norm.  At least a package I ordered is shipped.  Should I be expecting another text in about 3-6 months regarding my parcel being stuck in some facility and then I need to click on some other link to get my package?  Fuck you!

26 October 2020
  310-849-6053  Beverly Hills, CA - A throwback to getting calls from familiar numbers.  Very appropriate for today.  Fuck you!

  No Caller ID - Whoa, really old school with the 'no caller ID'.  Fuck you!

27 October 2020
  310-312-2213  Beulah, WY - Beulah, is that like Boo-Yah!?  Ah, we miss Stuart Scott and his signature catchphrases.  How about this for a catchphrase?  Fuck you!

  531-247-7434  Omaha, NE - Second call in about 17 minutes. I should mention that both of these were labeled as Spam Risks and flagged by Call Protect.  That is pretty much a double fuck you!

07 September 2020

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 103, 104, 105, 114

More missing issues arrived!  This allows us to not only continue our build, but we also get to dive into the parts that were shipped to us months ago.  With this shipment, we are kinda back on track. Although, we do have issues that are about forty ahead of our current build.

Issues 103, 104, 105, 114

Issues 103-105 are what we need right now.  We have 107-113 waiting, and 114 just keeps us on 'schedule'.

Issue 103 - Cable and Wires, Right Side

Parts in Issue 103

This is the same as where we last left off with issues 101 and 102, just on the other side.  More wires and more twist ties.

Issue 104 - Junction Box, Top Left

Contents of Issues 104

Issue 104 - Junction Box, Top Right

Contents of Issue 105

Issues 104 and 105 deal with the flux boxes mounted on the T-panel.  Some more fiber optic like tubes as with the front flux boxes.  Pretty straight forward build that should be familiar.

Issue 114 - Reactor Drum

Parts in Issue 114

We are not going to get to this issue this time. This was a relatively stress-free shipment that only required intermediate building skills.  Next time we continue with Issue 106 and on. I have already took a peek in the box and it looks like fun.  

Build up to Issue 105

Screw count:  96-AP, 25-BP, 2-CP, 22-AM, 13-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 38-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 19-FP, 2-JM, 5-HP, 3-GP, 16-NM, 2-MM, 9-KM, 2-LM, 15-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM, 4-JP, 2-KP, 3-QM, 2-LP, 6-MP 1-RM

to be continued...




02 September 2020

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - September 2020

 The other day the news was on the background and they teased an upcoming story.  Guess the story.  Yep. "If you received a message about a overdue package delivery...beware of scam...".  Well, look what the first call/text is.

2 September 2020

  661-238-5659  Tehachapi, CA - First we had Connecticut, then New York, now California.  I know the postal service is not this incompetent.  By the way, this is supposed to be from the USPS.  I doubt the fine folks there would ever 'forget' a package from March.  Again, six months to deliver something when we have shit like next day and same day delivery?  Fuck you!

3 September 2020

  310-849-6140  Beverly Hills, CA - Kinda a relief to just get a regular telemarketer call from a spoofed number.  No text for some undelivered package that has been sitting at some unknown facility since the Stone Age, CBD promo, or some other scam.  But still, fuck you! 

5 September 2020

 800-433-4659 - One of those typical Saturday telemarketer calls.  Did a quick search and the 800-433-XXXX is linked to phone scams.  Shocked!  Fuck you!

8 September 2020

  310-944-9872 Redondo Beach, CA - This is the first of three calls within about a twenty minute span.  Fuck you!

  201-771-5601  Dumont, NJ - Second call of the day.  Fuck you

Three calls within twenty minutes.  


  203-643-0897  Brandford, CT - Well, this one left a message:

203-643-0897
I did a search on 844-790-2700 and first results are from robocallers.  Sorry, "Nicole", you will have to cold call someone else.  Oh, Nicole...one more thing...fuck you!

  714-686-9614  Gardena, CA - Oh cool, I have another package from six months ago that has yet to be delivered. Tell you what...take that package and shove it up your ass.  Fuck you!

9 September 2020

  310-398-5894  Los Angeles, CA -  Today happens to be California Admission Day.  On 9 September 1850, California became the 31st state.  So, it is fitting that I get a call from California at six o'clock in the morning.  Anyone want to guess what this was about?  They left a message...

310-398-5894
Clue, the transcript was in code...or in another language.  If you guessed the call came from some Chinese telemarketer, you are correct!  I wonder if the message was to inform me of an undelivered package.  Fuck you!

  747-236-9056  Los Angeles, CA - Another undelivered package.  For those keeping track this is the fourth package that I have sitting in some secret warehouse.  At least this one is from August, so only a month in storage.  Fuck you!

  302-480-3805  Dover, DE - This is apparently the fifth package that needs to be delivered.  Wait, five packages?  Could these be the five lions?  Maybe if I get all five, I can form Voltron.  Fuck you!

  714-313-1598  Anaheim, CA - Dude, pro tip, check your grammar.  There are no commas, periods, or any sort of punctuations in this text.  Random words are capitalize, some which should be capital are not.

So, Apple wants to put a sticker on my car, but I need to contact some fool with a gmail address?   Dude, another pro tip, at least get an Apple address.  Also, 'small sticker'?  Like the ones that used to come with Apple products?  I feel like Apple could save a lot of money buy just bringing those back.  People used to put those on their cars, for free.  Fuck you!

  publicrecordsnoticempnqaiwkd@zg0xjf.com  - No, seriously.  That is the address

publicrecordsnoticempnqaiwkd@zg0xjf.com

You know how many people can type without looking at their hands?  Well, trying to type out this email address, I found out that I am not one of those people.  I got the first part, then it went all to shit, as I needed to hunt and peck.  Fuck you!

  951-406-4304  Riverside, CA - Coming down from the rafters, Call Protect dives down to intercept this call.

951-406-4304

We are in voting season, so get ready to be bombarded with these telemarketer calls.  Fuck you!

   646-394-1034  New York, NY - Another one of those calls where the Asian bot leaves a message in a foreign language.  Do you understand the words that are coming out of this bot?  Fuck you!

  858-504-7890  Rancho Santa Fe, CA - Sounds like an expensive neighbourhood.  Too bad your town is infested with telemarketers.  Fuck you!

24 September 2020

  628-266-3533  Corte Madera, CA - Go fuck yourself!

  310-599-3843  Compton, CA - Second call in less than an hour.  Go fuck yourself!


  323-290-7962  Los Angeles, CA - Third call of the day.  Another foreign voicemail that makes no sense to me.  Fuck you!

27 September 2020

  310-560-6788  Santa Monica, CA - First call on a Sunday evening.  Fuck you!

  310-560-6788  Santa Monica, CA - Second call, four minutes later.

310-560-6788

No message was left.  Obviously, not that important.  Most likely a telemarketer.  Fuck you!

  682-382-8941  Fort Worth, TX - Take a closer look at the image below. The first call came in and it was intercepted by Call Protect.  This is obviously a Spam Risk, thank you Call Protect for the confirmation.  Note the number ending with 2841 (at the bottom of image).  Fuck you!

682-382-8942  Fort Worth, TX - Now look at the second number, which is at the top, yes they left a voicemail...we will get to that.  Note the that second number came through, but was silenced thanks to a feature on the phone.  The number has the same area code, same prefix...and the suffix is 8942, just one number higher than the previous call which was less than a minute before.

These two calls could have been executed at the same time. Attacking from multiple angles, so to speak.  Here is the transcript of the message:


While "Nicole" sounds like an actual human being in the recording, it does not excuse the fact that this is totally a spam call.  Note that it was labeled  as "Spam Risk" buy the phone, that is the first strike.  Second strike, the call back number listed is not the same as the number which the call originated from.  

Yes, of course I looked up the number.  Any wild guesses to what results came up?  Bingo!  Spam!  I also looked up "Interstate Brokers".  They have a website that has not been updated since 2009.  They may not even exist.  Plus their offices are in Los Angeles.  

The other result from "Interstate Brokers" is Interstate Brokers of America.  One of their social media accounts has one post from almost 5 months ago, with no likes or comments.  They also have only three followers.  Another one of their social media accounts simply does not exist. I think that is enough research for this to conclude.

How many strikes is that?  Yeah. Fuck you!

  762-435-5839  Monticello, GA - Oh look, it is "Nicole", again.

762-435-5839

I also noticed that "Nicole" called earlier this month.  Look at the 8 September entry, she called from  Bradford, CT.  Yesterday, it was Fort Worth, TX.  Today, Monticello, GA.  Where is this bitch going to call me from tomorrow.  Hey last day of the month is tomorrow, better get on that flight soon.  Fuck you!

  310-849-4501  Beverly Hills, CA - Oh, how we have missed those Beverly Hills calls.  Congratulations, you got flagged by Call Protect and silenced by the phone.  Fuck you!
