Our 15 year old daughter Punky has been getting a scammer calling her on her landline just about everyday for a couple of weeks. It was not a robo recording but a guy saying he was from Google wanting to get her site listed on the first page of Google for a $1000.00. She answered his call one time and told him she was interested and call her back that night to discuss it further.
She asked one of her twin sisters to drive her to a marina on one of the lakes near us. No problem sis but what in the heck do you want me to drive you to the marina for. Don’t ask questions sis and laughed so off they go.
Later that night we heard her phone ring and she answered it on her speaker phone. He started his spill with her and all of a sudden we thought a merchant marine ship was coming though the house.
She had bought herself one of those hand held fog horns and gave it to him full blast and sent all of us running for cover when we heard that fog horn lol.
The scammer has not called her anymore. She told us she put the fog horn dead on the receiver and let it go wide open. We told her, trust us we know.
If you get a number on your caller ID that you don’t recognize you can trace the number here, not the owner just the carrier and location.
You can also Google the number and see if anyone else has received the call and reported it as a scammer or robo call.
