FINALLY!

Every day around noon, for the last week or two, I've been getting calls from an automated system asking for someone named Chelsea. The only options they gave were essentially "This is Chelsea" and "She's not in right now." The second option just made them call back the next day. I tried the first option... NOTHING. No ringing, no answering, no human. Just silence. It was really pissing me off because it would wake me up, annoy me, and I had no way of putting an end to it.

Then today, just a few minutes ago, they called again; second time in one day. This time it was a human on the other end, thank gods. I gave him an earful about the whole thing, and thankfully he removed my number from the system. At least, so he says. I guess we'll find out tomorrow around noon.

Luckily, this has all been on my landline, and not on my cell.

Once you get more than 3 calls, it's reportable as harassment.

There's one of the *xx codes you use to get the calling number recorded. And as I said, after the third one, you can call your phone company and complain. You do have to agree to file charges or they'll just ignore you though.

I thought about reporting it, but I don't have caller ID, the company never identified itself, and I had no idea what to say to get the shit to end. I didn't think to ask for the company name when the human was on, I was so pissed I was not quite shouting.

Don't need caller ID.

But there might be a charge for using the "have phone company save called number for later" function.

Try saying "human" into the phone. Works with many autosystems.

a human? barely better than a robot... but hopefully they sussed you were not happy about the calls.

Well I assume it was human. Could've been an Alpha Centaurian for all I know, but it sounded human enough.
