Twice the annoyance

At 6:36 yesterday, a call came in over the cell phone, which the carrier branded as “Scam Likely.” The offending number, or so it seems, is 405-369-5261. These jerks are blacklisted already, and deservedly so; were it up to me, I’d bind the lot of them and send them down the chute into the cremation over.

Twelve minutes later, the same goddamn number dialed into my landline, identified as “Out Of Area.” What they need to be is out of air.

    ‘Tis the season, apparently — contrary, so it would seem, to the findings of a certain FTC study I had brought to my attention last March.

    I block ’em, but in my case they just keep calling from new numbers. At least they don’t seem to be spoofing legitimate numbers so far.

    They do here; I’m in the same prefix as the biggest hospital in town, and at least half the time they go for that fake-your-neighbor same-prefix scheme, they land on a legit hospital number. (I called a couple of them to make sure. Yep.)
