    New Scripts for answering Robo Calls

    Well, I made up a few scripts I am following when answering calls that don't show up in my contacts list.

    These work, I have them immediately hang up!

    "Antifa Statue Removal Fund, this is Bill. Can we count on you to donate $500 to our Mt. Rushmore project?"

    "Black Lives Matter Riot Fund, this is Treyvon. Can we count on you to donate at least $200 to help fund a rioter for a third of his daily cost?"

    "Ku Klux Klan, Petersburg Chapter. This is David, can we count on your donation of $1,000 to our MAWA fund!"

    I thought about doing a "Caire" fund, but figured the above three are much better known!
    "Color Me Proudly Deplorable!"

    "We the Government, By the Government, For the Government!"

    My cousin made one cry. She got a call before Christmas last year. "'we can lower your interest on your loans...." My cousin stopped her and said you are a terrible person. Do you know that is how banks make money. If I do what you want some bank employees will not have money to buy their Kids Christmas? You want me to kill some little kids dreams of a Christmas present? You're a horrible person. Click

    I used to use one, when living in England..

    "Hello? You are through to the HMRC* Investigations Unit, this call is being recorded and the source monitored, how can I help you..?" Click...


    *HMRC = Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.

    I have been known to answer the phone with, "Lee County Coroner's Office, how may I direct your call," delivered in a bored but businesslike manner, as if I say it a thousand times a day.

    I can't tell you how many times that I've gotten a gasp, a click and a dial tone with of that one.

    If I don't recognize the phone number or the name of the person calling, then I don't answer the phone.
    It has worked fantastic for me for over 15 years.

    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    What does a person do if they have voicemail? A lot of robocalls now are just trying to find a line that answers, and when it does the computer will call that number back on a regular basis.

    I generally just answer like a 911 dispatcher. "911. please state the nature of your emergency". They tend to hang up pretty fast.

    Answer the phone, start immediately in a low voice:

    ”I told you I’d call you when the job is done. But we’ve got a problem — no, YOU’VE got a problem. He wasn’t alone. Now it’s a real mess that YOU need to get cleaned up before the neighbors figure out what they heard and call 911. If you try to stiff me on the deal I’ve got your number now and I’ll track you down.
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    I used to answer unknowns with, “Central Intelligence Agency, Langley, this is Roberts speaking.” Lots of hangups, but one guy got agitated and told me it was illegal for the agency to be operating within the US. In an aside, I said, “Got a trace Jerry?” Caller hung up.

    I used various police agencies also identifying as a fraud division also.

    If they aren’t in my contacts, I don’t answer at all anymore.
