A few weeks back, there was a thread about dealing with unwanted phone calls. Most of the suggestions came from Chris R and myself, but there was one from somebody that caught my eye.
This suggested systematically pressing the hash key. I tried this and it works. So much so that it is now my first response to unwanted calls. Silent calls co dead quickly. Recorded calls go dead quickly. And, this morning, I had one of the scam calls about a problem with my computer. so I started pressing the hash key about once every three seconds. It creates a beep. When I heard the caller say “Stop pressing the …” [beep], I thought to myself “YES”.
I have tried to find out who made the original suggestion, but the search tool on this forum seems to be another product from the Chocolate Fireguard Company. So, whoever it was - my thanks, it works a treat.
