oh ok! If I get silent or prank phone calls, I play a recitation of the Quran and leave the phone next to the speakers. LOL! They never call again. Try it!

If you are here in the US, it most likely is an automated telemarketing system. The way they work is they batch call a whole bunch of numbers at one time. Then as people answer the phone they are put on hold as the program makes connections in the order of the phones being answered.

Yeah, I think it's just telemarketers.

People who say their names are John or Judy in Indian accents so thick it's difficult to keep a straight face while saying, 'No thank you, I would not like another mobile phone'.

Those automated marketing calls are creeping into the United Kingdom. I've had a few of them calls, its an answering machine telling me i've won so and so or they have a great deal for me.

**** they can be annoying.

We've had some prank calls in the past as well, but not so much in recent days.


OK I admit to doing a few prank calls when i was a young kid :-[

^LOL it's so annoying when they try and pass themselves off as Brits! My bro whose normally an extremely calm guy put one caller in his place when he offered him a kitchen for £5000. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. My bro convinced him to buy a kitchen off him and asked the guy for his credit card details. The guy gave some number and my bro told him to hold while he checks his credit card details.

Then after a pause my bro told the caller that the he had given false details and he is going to be investigated for fraud! Looool.. the guy actually told my bro to F-off and hung up. ;D
