Calypso Cay is sorry they ever called me...lol
I know a scam when I hear one, and I know if I win something...I don't need my credit card to get my prize.
Just to double check I searched them here. 30 reports! Seeing that I am on the National Do Not Call List (that I think does nothing) I asked them for their name..Brandy was the name, and then I asked where they were located and she hung up on me. BIG mistake. When telemarketers hang up on me before I get a chance to insult them it really makes me mad. So I called them back at 727-846-7525. It rang once and then I heard dialing. It was their auto-dialer! I said hello a few times and then I heard Jennifer giving me the same bull sh_t that Brandy gave me. I won!! I was selected to win a trip to Florida! Pretty cool considering that I called them.
I let her go through the whole thing and then they say...we may have another offer for you...let me check....and then the supervisor gets on the phone to close the deal. The first supervisor was Judy King. She really did not want to part with her last name, but she did. When she got to the part where she wanted my Visa, I told her what I was up to and that I am reporting them to the do not call list, and I did.
BUT...then I figured, let's have some fun!! I kept this up for about 4 hours today, and will continue until they change their number. Although at the end they finally were catching on, I can only change my voice so many times.
So I just stayed on the line, when they hang up just wait...you will hear it dialing again and you will get another Judy, Robert, or Jennifer Swaim or whoever. I started telling them they are working for a company that rip's people off. They had the nerve to say..."You are harassing us" I'm laughing so hard right now I'm turning blue. Harassing you huh? How does it feel? I'm relaxing after dinner and some jackaxx from Florida is trying to rip me off in my own house, but I"M harassing them. I had one tough guy say they were calling the cops, the FBI...ect. I said "Please do, I'll wait for them"
He also tried telling me it was another Calypso Cay. I said really? The reports I'm reading is the exact line you guy's tell me. Same numbers and all!!
by the way, I was busy working on a few computers and had my headset on, so I didn't mind hitting redial over and over to give these people a taste of their own medicine. And I'll keep doing it. If they change their number, I will find it.
Those of you who want to get back at these low lifes should do the same.
I figure if I have them on the phone that they are not riping someone off.
And I have worked with law enforcement in the past and I know for a fact if you do not use foul language or threaten someone's life it is not considered harassment.
So I say Call Away folks! Almost all telemarketers do not block their numbers because they can reach more people who have anonymous call rejection. Designed to avoid those people. Talk away...let them go through the whole thing, ask questions,drag it out, keep them on the phone. I've even used a stutter to make it a long call. Be creative!
Like I did with Calypso Cay at 727-846-7525. You may get a busy signal a few times, but it will go through. It will ring once and then you will hear dialing. Just say hello a few times and someone will answer. And you will be an instant winner. To me it's like fishing. hehehe.
Also a guy there said "why don't you tell me your name and address so I can come kick your a*s"? Believe me I would so much enjoy getting my hands around one of these scum who rip off mostly seniors. As a 6'3 245lb Marine I would even tie my hands. But violence is not the answer. Annoying them the way they annoy us is the way to go. Here's another tip, sometimes I set up my fax program to send 50 - 100 blank faxes to the same number. If they can't call people to annoy them and rip them off then I'm a happy guy.
