Good choice! You can also login to your Nomorobo account and enable political call blocking if you want it. They do not block charitable calls.

When they created the "do not call" rules, they made charitable organizations exempt. What I found out is that once you put your name on the "do not call" lists, is that my calls from charitable organizations increased. I think they are using those lists to more numbers to call.

So far the service is only available on land line and Apple phone products. The android version is not active as yet.

Mine have been doing that recently, too, and I'm not on that list.

I can't be bothered to worry about the IRS as I was just informed by land line that the FBI had determined that my neighborhood had a very high crime rate. ;)
I have only noticed that the squirrels will on occasion steal the birds food.

Bob,
You started this thread 10 weeks ago and that time it sounded like you were headed for jail with probably no visitation. What happened? Did they let you out on Good Behavior?

I had a similar situation with a company with a similar URL to the one for Dell.  I stupidly let them control my computer because I thought they WERE Dell.  Of course they found a virus and wanted $300 to fix it.  At that point, I got smart and hung up on them.  Since I have Norton Antivirus installed, I called them for help finding out if a virus had really snuck in past their software.  They spent 45 minutes giving my computer a thorough scan--much more thorough than the usual one that runs automatically and found no virus.  And the best part was that there was no cost!!

When I got one of those "virus" calls, I informed the guy that yes, I did indeed have multiple virus running at that time.

I told him about my 3 Linux boxes, two of which were each running 4 Windows sessions in VirtualBox. With 8 different anti-virus programs. I would delete all of the virus infected Windows "virtual" machines when I was done with my testing.

After a bit of silence from his end, I hung up. Didn't get any more calls like that for a while.
