Re: How do you handle the Ex.'s collection calls....

it's not my Ex, but my sister supposedly put my phone number down as hers for several payday loans...

 

I gladly give them all her contact information including her girlfriend's cellphone number Smiley Wink

You could change your number...  

 

I have people calling for a guy named Christopher all the time... apparently he owed a lot of people and he had my cell phone number before I did... Also learned he played the bagpipes, cause someone called needing a bagpipe player for their grandma's funeral... very bizarre

That's great Smiley Happy , too bad you don't play otherwise you could have scored a sweet gig.

 

For the first year I had it, I used to get prison collect calls on my mobile phone ~ I was tempted to answer just to see who it was calling, but I never did since this is probably the most expensive form of communication ever invented, like $19/minute or something crazy like that.

I thought you couldn't call collect to a mobile phone, how would it get billed?   Ya I would have totally answered!

 

My mom had people calling for a man named Raymond all the time at her house... Raymond had a lot of friends!  They tried to call him for over 6 yrs!

**bleep** I died when I read this!!!   Unfortunately we don't have that land line anymore... It was an additional land line we had gotten to use for internet dial up... We have DSL now at my mom's house

When I was a small child, my parents were puzzled because various men came to the door at odd hours. They were very polite, and went away when told the previous residents were not there any more. Eventually my parents learned what the occupation of those two women had been, I won't be specific but you can probably guess!

LOL! We are talking about the early 1960s, when phoning a bank was very rare, one spoke face-to-face with somebody at a local branch.
