i hate those dang phone calls

when we had a landline at the country n we eventually let it become our junk call phone
if it rang we always let it go to voicemail
it got to the point where the only calls we got was from junk calls
we cut the cord and dropped the landline

before i retired i rarely got junk calls since i rarely gave out my number
after cutting the cord i had to give my cell number to folks
here came the junk calls
tons of them
it came like a storm as soon as i started giving it out to businesses
i used a federal site that blocked some of the calls
they just find ways to get around the rules

since moving here
we still get those junk calls
at least once a day if not more

when we first moved i got a lot of calls i didnt recognize
i think i blocked a few folks i didnt mean to block
sorry if that was you

my solution is like many of you
just let any number i dont recognize go to voicemail
a reasonable person will recognize the message if its junk
they keep wanting me to borrow 200000  bucks since ive been approved
i need to call them the irs since i owe them money
funny they just sent me a refund
the state sent me a refund for a dollar

i do worry if i am too quick on the trigger to block numbers that i may block important ones
i certainly have almost done that several times

here is my solution
if they dont leave a message they get blocked
if the message is fake they get blocked
sometimes  im not sure
i do like kim komando.com recommends
i google the number
then look at the first three listings that pop up

i just googled my number and nothing really came up
i googled one of my junk numbers 17742147984
it was easily identified as a junk call
wanting me to borrow money
then i googled another one 13153814298
yep theres another junk one
it was the irs wink wink saying i needed to call right now....

i have used this google search and found that it was the dentist office
and another time the doctors office

so be careful what you do
its important not to answer those junk calls
they gotcha if you do

here is kim komandos explanation of what to do
but its basically what ive written

cant they do something about all this
