Car Warranty Calls

I should be the president. Just going to put that out there to start.

These calls are easy to stop. Here's my plan when I'm the president:

1. Answer them. They want your business, so they will engage you. Have the FCC pretend to want it and proceed to do business with them and then apprehend them all. I've seen mob movies, it happens all the time. Just do that.

2. Put the onus on the phone carriers. They own the networks that these calls flood. They know where they are originating from. If Verizon can't stop the calls... we have problems.

3. Find the people who work for the company that is doing this. They were able to track every a hole that went to or near the idiot fest on January 6th. You mean to tell me that they can't locate the folks profiting from this? GTFO!

4. Call in the military. I think every person who owns a cell phone would ok a drone strike of wherever these car warranty calls are coming from. Who'd work there?

5. Speaking of employees... IRS do anything good? For fuck's sake, where are the IRS when you need them? Raid these dirtballs now.

6. Announce a national death sentence for anyone who actually buys into this car warranty scam. Not some long term time in the slammer. No, old school. Stoning to death. Or maybe make them attend a Travis Scott concert. Let the world know we mean business.

 

My solutions are sound. 

Let's go.

See, here in Canada we don't get extended warranty calls.

We just get automated messages saying I owe the CRA and there's a warrant for my arrest. Unless I call in and sort it out.

Or

That my package has been picked up by border services and my drugs I was smuggling have been confiscated.

Or

An entire message in Mandarin with the end part in English saying I owe DHL for custom fees

Or

Telus offering me a whole new iphone for free! No strings attached. (I'm not with Telus)

 

I always just answer it, hit '1' to go to the "operator" and put my phone on mute and let them speak in super broken English to no one.

Your phone carrier should be held responsible.

Drone strikes would also help too. I'm all for helping Canada by sharing some drone strikes.

I'll be both the POTUS and the PM if I stopped all these calls. Both countries would elect me in landslides.

I don't think drone striking India would be too well received on the international stage. lol

As ex-IRS, they won't do anything - especially for a car warranty scam - not their purview. Those robocalls saying IRS is going to to put you in jail unless you pay in iTunes gift cards though....

IRS's power is pretty limited in a lot of respects. Lotta hoops to jump through before a case can be referred to Criminal Investigations. And more steps after that to gather enough evidence to arrest and/or raid.

We shouldn't have to even deal with this individually. ISP know exactly what you're doing and limit the volume of traffic on their system. I'm sure the phone company is the same.

You mean to tell me that the phone companies can't stop these?

Someone mails something bad and the post office is all over it.

I will become secretary of the phone company. My rule will be fair, but with an iron fist. I will be judge, jury AND executioner of all phone company executives, AND their children and EXTENDED families if they DO NOT STOP allowing car warranty phone calls. I will chop off heads with a blunt axe. And for the masterminds of these schemes, they will be forced to listen the Cher 24/7/365 whilst on stimulants to keep them awake and aware of Cher on the radio, along with Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey on their TV. They will sleep on sheets made of raw fibreglass.

I have solar panel sales guys coming today to my house. I'm curious to what they'll tell me. I'm not letting them inside my house.

Their advance scout kids were cool. I know they need leads. I work from home when needed, so I gave them a time I'm home to come over and try to tell me about them. I'll drop the 'I'm an engineer' card early to trim some of the crap from their pitch.

I usually say I drive trains when they ask what type of engineer I am.

Solar dude bailed. Said the visit would require "an hour" as they do the design while at your house.

Absolute crap show I'm sure.

Said I can't give him that much time. More like 15 mins, max. They want your electric bill to get your info for use and all. Type of meter too was mentioned (I presume a two way flow meter). My roof is 26 years old. So I know it's too old to build a system on. Fishing to see what I can get. I'm not looking to stay in my house longer than 10 more years. Would think a new roof and solar panels would help sell my place down the line.
